UP Insulation 3 oz

$7.00 $5.60

UP is a performance-oriented technical insulation that is lightweight, compressible and completely water resistant. UP has maximum warmth and can be used in large baffles in places where consistent dampness and compression can potentially be damaging to down.

weight: 97 g

Description

UP insulation feature a unique synthetic cluster built around the finest water resistant fibers of varying deniers and composition to mimic the natural down cluster better than any existing blowable synthetic on the market. By using deniers ranging in size – some smaller than one denier – the UP cluster is able to bind to each other better to provide more warmth and greater durability. Much like down, UP works by trapping air providing maximum insulation for a given weight.

Warmth

UP has tested to be warmer than a 600 fill power Goose Down when tested for warmth based on equal volume. While no synthetic can equal the warmth to weight, compressibility and resiliency of down, UP makes up for it with sheer durability and water resistance.

Loft

In independent testing, UP has shown to have a loft equal to 625 Fill Power.

Durability

A synthetic insulation is only as good as its durability. Having been tested under harsh washing condition, UP is able to withstand 20+ repeated washings showing no discernible cold spots or clumping in baffles up to 3″ x 10″. With the warmth close to a 700 fill power down and able to be used in larger cold weather products, this new blowable insulation is one that finally transcends the small, lightweight jacket baffles common seen in comparable insulation.

Sold in 3 ounce bags.

    I’m making a quilt. I was wondering if a baffle size of 5 to 7 inches would work fine with the up insulation.

      I would keep it closer to 4 or 5 inches if possible. With larger baffles, even with down, the insulation starts to shift a little easier.

    What amount of insulation would you recommend (ounces) to make a 30-40 degree top quilt? I am thinking 12 oz, but would 9 oz. work?

      With the UP insulation it is about 30% more than 800 fill. It would be about 13oz for a 30° top quilt.

    Question

    Deb Bialecki

    How do you calculate how many ounces you’d need to order for a quilt? I’ve never made a quilt before – so I’m guessing using the Climashield batting is easier to calculate – because it’s just sewn in between the layers of fabric. But I’m not sure how to calculate for loose insulation (UP or down) that would be stuffed into baffles of a quilt. Any suggestions?

    Question

    ash35hay

    Can you use climate shield and up down to make a winter underquilt if so do you need a layer of fabric in-between the layers so they don’t get mixed up

    How does this insulation compare with down in terms of compressed bulk?

      Down will compress better and you will need about 30% more of the UP insulation to get the same temperature rating.
