Ideas please :-)

I got this sample sized offcut from Quest by airmail today. I'm a mad inventorating MYOG gear junkie.

What shall I make with it?

Thanks Bill, I'll have a read tomorrow, it's late here.

How did you get around the translucency/indecency issue with your cuben kilt by the way?

Hi Rog,

I fixed the Footies Link.

The Cuben Kilt idea would only work in some places unless you wore a pair of shorts under it.

Thanks again Bill. I'm pretty sure I don't have enough cuben for them though, so it's carrier bags for me when I need watertight feet. :-)

I think I'm going with the SUL pack idea I've had. Just need to source some suitable material for the back and bottom.
