Re: Zippers
Not likely. A #3 zipper weighs 0.33oz/yard. A slider weighs 0.08 oz. A 1/2-inch buckle would work fine. Those weigh 3g each. You'd be looking at 1-1.5oz total to add zippers to both sides

Re: Re: Silpoly 20Dx50D floor material?
Thanks for the reply, Kyle. I might be making another inner tent soon. I had assumed the SilPoly would be too thin, but it sounds like it might be fine. The higher HH would be nice though

Re: Re: Re: Re: Silpoly 20Dx50D floor material?
Kyle, I am curious about the "20Dx50D" construction. Does this mean you have 20D fibers in one direction and 50D fibers in the perpendicular direction? What is the effect of this ...
