continuous baffles

Hi all.
Looking for some insight from those of you who have optioned the three ounce overfill on warmer Western Mountaineering or Feathered Friends sleeping bags.
Does the overfill stop the dreaded down migration or is it still an issue?

I don't have a FF or WM bag. I have had overfills on on other bags with mixed results.

- it depends where the manufacturer puts the overfill. I had one bag with continuous vertical baffles that put the overfill mainly in the side baffles. For me that wasn't as effective putting it on the chest centre baffle even though the centre baffle already had a reasonable amount of down.

- obviously depends on how full the baffle was to begin with. An already full baffle won't have as much movement as a half full one.

- as I'm sure you know.. it's a bit of a pain but as long as the baffle has enough down you can always shake it before bed to get the down where you want it.

My advice..See if you can specify which baffles get overfilled.

I have the factory overfill in a couple of WM bags with no side baffle, and haven't noticed any migration of down. Haven't had a standard fill WM bag, so can't compare.
