may the force be with you, steven...
I await the outcome, are you using a commercial heat sealer? or something else

Jesse, thanks for the force. I'm just using a thermal impulse sealer...nothing special, 10" length. Give me a few days and I'll find some time to get'er done.

Ooh, I look forward to the pics and the test results! Have you tested a 20 inch wide seal yet? I guess if you are cutting it down quite a bit you've got a bit of length to play with... might be worth doing a horizontal seal further up than your intended 'final' seal just to confirm it works. If you stuff it up you'll still be able to have another crack at it.

If it all goes badly and you need to do 5 or 6 seals and cuts you'll end up with a really expensive sit pad! ;-)

Steve- sounds good, anxiously awaiting your results and methodology

a 25" wide large cut down to 48-50" would be poifect! :)

am I correct in my assumption if you cut off ~ 1/3, you'll net ~ 1/3 weight saving?

the valve looks pretty light weight, not sure if there is something else I'm not thinking about
