DIY Quilt Breathability on 02/08/2009 15:43:11 MST Print View

I'd like to make a 30 Deg. quilt using Climashield with a waterproof Nylon shell. I would like to use a fabric inside that is less ' clammy ' than Nylon. I was thinking of using one of the wicking fabrics like Polartec Powerdry Silkweight or Powerdry Mesh.
My question is : Is that going to cause problems ?
Is so much moisture going to get trapped in the insulation that it sets up a Heat conduit, so to speak, and I'll freeze ?
