    I've heard nothing at all about this product http://www.alloutdoor.co.uk/sleeping...et-sulfur-.htmand they seem to have launched it without too much hype. I'm thinking they are releasing this to take the place of the Alpine down blanket. Not much difference in the specs apart from the fact that this new auriga blanket is 750 fill down and the alpine was only 700. Cant even find any reviews of this yet so has anyone used one yet or anyone know much about the product in general?

    Cheers.

    Also interested in this. My Montbell stretchy down bag has hardly got any down left in it so have been looking to replace it. They aren't sold in the UK any more so this sort of blanket might be a good way to extend its life a bit longer.



    These blankets don't seem very popular over here.

    Yeah, I need more room than mummys provide. Lots of good quilt makers in the States but would involve customs charges to ship here. The Auriga seems to be marketed as a "Summer blanket" but still reckon it would be able to be used for 3 season stuff.
