Sorry, this item is out of stock
I bought a the necessary materials for a 30 degree under quilt and followed directions. I couldn’t be more pleased with it
I really like this stuff, easy to work with and seems true to temperature ratings. Light too!
This is my first project, adding insulation to my daily wear winter jacket. It came with 80g/m^2, which is entirely inadequate for Canadian winters, and this brought it up to 250g/m^2. Climashield is incredibly easy to work with, in marking, cutting, and sewing by hand, and I imagine even easier by machine. Needs absolutely no quilting, and running locked stitches through all the layers spreads load well. The two sheets between which the insulation is sandwiched hold the material together well, preventing bunching and wear, while allowing the added insulation to slide over the original without getting caught. The only downside one should possibly be aware of is the loft-to-insulation ratio; Climashield is very thick, limiting the amount you can pack into a garment practically. Materials like Primaloft (warm) or Thinsulate (thin) are much more dense, perhaps making it possible to make this coat a 350g/m^2 where Climashield limits me. But these materials, I read, are far more difficult to work with, and arguably won’t last as long. Ripstop-by-the-Roll delivered the insulation in one square sheet, folded over and vacuum packed, which was both convenient and easy to work with. I’ve genuinely been recommending both the website and Climashield to all my friends whose jackets aren’t built for -40°C (all jackets and parkas)
After witnessing a friend struggle and cry over down quilting I opted for this for my own quilt. Very easy to sew with regular presser foot, walking foot is not necessary. I very much appreciate this products ability to store compressed down.
