Yes Silverclaws, this would be indeed creative and most precious than any other bag bought from the market. For me though, this is not an option, as I have neither the required household stuff nor the patience to do it on my own.I have known people adapt old household eider downs into sleeping bags and if I can find one in good order I will be doing it myself.
Yes Greek1983, I am still searching. I am not in a hurry as it will not be as cold before the end of October to need the -10 bag. So I am taking my time having also my eyes open for offers. I will also visit some physical shops to see "live" some candidates!I guess you're still searching for the best option. How about this Carinthia bag? I know it's 200 grams heavier, but the price, including shipping costs to Finland, is below 200 Euros.

The packed size comes down mostly to the quality of the filling. The cotton cover tends to be very thin and doesn't add a lot to the volume. The highest fillpower down will be more highly processed and have fewer feathers-it'll be far more compressible.
how small would a double eiderdown pack? im assuming you need the old thiner type bedspread variety? im looking for ideas to chuck in my jerven bag and something with a small pack size would be good. to be honest it neednt be converted, i could use it as a duvet as i have the king size jerven
Nanok and Mamot are great bags.Hallo all,
I am looking for a sleeping bag to allow me to sleep comfortable down to -10C.
I am interested only in down sleeping bags (not synthetics), as I would like the bag to be less than 1.5kg and quite compact to fit my backpack.
I am a man, 95kilos, 186cm and quite broad shouldered; so I won’t fit comfortable in short (less than 210cm) or narrow (less than 75cm wide) bags.
Ideally, I would like to spend not more than 200 pounds (including posting cost – I live in Finland)
After searching around the net, I found some alternatives, which I list below.
Any comments or suggestion you may have, especially from personal experience with these bags (or any other bag that would fit my specs) are very welcome.
