My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Re: Re: Right on!
I don't know why supplex is better. The fibers are very fine. It's nylon. I've had that exact problem and have experimented with a number of fabrics. It's sort of generic. A ...

Re: Right on!
I have supplex fabric covering my shoulders. Less condensation on it. It's part of my quilt. Fleece is good but supplex better

Re: Seam Sealer Thinners
Urethane sealer for non silicone fabric - McNett Seam Grip or Shoe Goo - use Toluene. I think this is nasty stuff that should be done in ventilated area. Lacquer thinner might work - check label ...
