    MYOG Ultralight Down Sleeping Bag/quilt

    Congrats on making your own bag! This is a hard project! Theoretically, the baffles should allow the down to move in between them, but also provide enough structure to trap the down so it doesn't just end up in one lump. When filling mine, I did manually try and move the down to all the baffles so it was (somewhat) uniform. It will settle in over time, and you can readjust as needed. Once you get it all distributed, you can measure the height of the loft of the bag. This depends in part on how high you made the baffle walls and how much down you put in. There are charts that will try and approximate warmth ratings for height of loft. This is all approximate however, the big question is are YOU comfortable in the bag at a certain temp? I sleep colder than my husband, for example...

I sleep colder than my husband, for example, so put the same amount of down in my bag, which is a small volume than his. You could do a trial run and add more down if you got too cold.
