This stuff is great! Very easy to work with and very warm. I made a top quilt with it to dip my toe into the MYOG scene and the results were super positive. I haven’t camped with it, but I can hang out on the back porch for hours staying warm with this thing, even with a bunch of snow on the ground.
That's awesome, thanks so much for the review Kevin! We're glad that the APEX is keeping you warm and toasty! Let us know if you have any questions about future projects, we're here to help!
This was the first time I've worked with a synthetic insulation fill. The Climashield APEX sewed easily enough and stayed together. I used a tissue paper backing between the feed dogs and insulation. This was used in a top quilt, which I haven't had the opportunity to test, but feels quite warm.
Thanks for the review and the helpful tip Matt! We'd love to see photos of your top quilt, be sure to tag us on social media!
Thanks so much for answering all my questions. I'm loving my under quilt on my hammock. The instructions were easy, though I would edit the way I sewed the end channels in (and it wasn't intuitive for me that you fold over the grosgrain ribbon before sewing to the quilt). I would sew both top and bottom channels (aka the grosgrain ribbon), and leave the 10 inch gap (to turn) at one end of the long side. All that said, can't wait to make more things now!
Thanks so much for the review Laura! Making your own gear is so satisfying and addicting, let us know if you have any questions about future projects. We are here to help!
Great loft and easy to sew because of the surface. I made an underquilt with it and have slept comfy in 40 degree temps and could probably go colder.
Thanks for the review! We'd love to see photos of your underquilt, be sure to tag us on social media or email us photos!
Seems to be great
