Just a quick question for those that have used a down bag. I bought the Marmot Sawtooth (15 degree) and I am noticing that some of the down material is already coming out. Not very much of it and there doesn't seem to be a rip or tear anywhere, I'm just noticing it around the seams. Is this normal?

Thanks,
Marty

I had some pop out almost immediately, but I made sure to pull them back in before they could escape. I guess it depends how much you are seeing coming out. I had maybe 5 feathers try to break loose per use.

I have some feathers float out of my Montbell.

Yes. For the bigger ones, be sure you pull then IN, not out, and then massage the hole closed.
