Re: Re: argon sil dead?
Lots of folks over at HF are still clamoring for SilArgon, so I bet Dutch will stock it again if he can. Ripstopbytheroll.com has 20D silnylon at 1.2oz/yd in a lot of cool colors. For some reason I...

Re: summer nights
"In the Appalachians, 45 to 70 F with unpleasant humidity." We normally see somewhere 55-70F for my area in the Appalachians, but still the same unpleasant humidity. Nothing like breat...

Re: coatings on big puffy down jackets?
Even though the 7d/10d/etc fabrics are very lightweight, they can still be very wind resistant. M50 was a good example. I forget what CFM rating Richard measured, but it was extremely low. To the p...

Re: Re: Re: Re: no-sew CF skirt - possible?

Re: Re: no-sew CF skirt - possible?
I'm not exactly sure how your design is coming together, but I would design to use double sided tape as opposed to the single. A visual may help us, help you(OK, maybe just me). Mock up - Ducks...

ULA Ohm
