I am working on a project that calls for 2 layers of 1” Polarguard 3D.  What insulation should I buy that would give me an equivalent amount of insulation?  This would be for a quilt.

Thanks,
John

1 layer 5 oz XP:  http://thru-hiker.com/materials/insulation.php

What was called 1” 3D had a basis weight of 2.7 to 3.0 osy.

Thanks AYCE, that is good news.  I would save not only on cost, but weight as well.  I’ll be in touch!
