Hi, I have an old fantastic down sleeping bag I don’t use for camping anymore. I sure could use a fantastic down blanket/comforter. Is there a way to convert it? Is there a shop doing that work? It’s tapered and closed at the foot, which may require fancier sewing than I can do. I appreciate any help you can give me!

In 1982 or so, I purchased a Marmot model which would work perfectly as a blanket. Down filled, less than 3 pounds weight, it could unzip along one side and across the bottom to convert into a double bag by zipping in a separate under sheet.
I still use it today, either as a single bag or, unzipped, as a quilt. that model is apparently no longer marketed, or anything comparable.
