Re: 7d vs m50

Re: Re: Re: Re: Why Aren't There Many X-Pac Packs Out There?
Add me to those who greatly prefer xpac to dyneema x. I think the ideal pack fabric would be basically DX40 with a lighter face fabric. Maybe 200d dyneema instead of 400d.

Re: Re: Gossamer Gear Mesh
The Quest Lycra Mesh is very similar if not the same as the Gossamer Gear stuff. I've used it on a couple packs and really like it. The tiny holes make it really hard to snag. I've bushw...

Re: thanks
Temps have been in the 70s the last couple weeks, so while the water might be cold, the air should be nice and warm. You'll probably be crossing a lot, but they're short crossings and then...

pfaff 130/230
Great finds. Those are both awesome machines and probably in the top 5 machines you could buy for MYOG stuff. Legendary in the sailing world (esp the 130). You'd have to spend A LOT on a new...
