Jimshaw and Ranger: Lucky you. My old Ski Hut mummy seems like it's stuffed with chicken feathers now. I would clean it out and replace that old down, but I suspect it would still be heavier than I now prefer.

I agree with not washing a down bag. They air out pretty well and a wipe down with rubbing alcohol will remove any intolerable dirt. After long continuous use my bags/quilts start smelling like warm puppies. Comforting.
