It's really a poncho. How about a pair of waterpoof sleeves, and side zips, to complete some type of rainwear?
There's the hood that remains on my dryducks bivy, hum.
I chickened out on wearing it to go snowboarding today. 24-30" of fresh pow and bluebird sky is a priority. You'd be proud, I left my pack and water at home to lighten up.
Bill thanks for bringing that up, I have definitely seen it before and it did make an impression as a real weight saver. That is probably taking it to the logical conclusion. It would be great if they could be easily removed and added on to other pants as needed, or slipped in to help pad backpack straps. Couldn't really tell what you had planned there. Partial sleeve? 3/8" sounds like a burly thickness. That's great you put the link in to the other thread, there is so much stuff here to search for things is daunting, but even more distracting!
Huzefa, and Roy, thanks for the heads up, GG Thinlights are all in stock: LINK 1/8, 1/4, 3/8", closed cell crosslinked copolymer polyolefin foam. Tyvek foam? The warpely cross section of this very beat RR makes it somewhat flexible accoutrement. Kind of dreading the sheet stock, honestly.
Huzefa, thanks that chart was influential to gravitate towards spending too much time here. Nisely done.
Brad, I don't remember any foam clothes! Funny though. Can you post a pic, purty please? I can't imagine the styling.
