Hows it going guys,
I just finished constructing my ray-way quilt, and decided that I'd like to add a couple of fasteners so as to create the possibility of securing the quilt either around my body or around my pad.
My first thought was that elastic would be the lightest option, but would also be less versatile. Another option would be to use buckle straps as seen on some of the Nunatak quilt models. And then there's drawcords....shock cords....theres really a lot out there that could potentially work. I'm really not knowledgeble about construction materials, and see lots of options on www.questoutfitters.com, so does anyone have any reccomendations on specific materials to use? I'm most interested in getting a tight fit for my chest and upper thigh area, so two fasteners would probably do the trick. At this point, I'm leaning a bit more towards two elastic bands of some sort, so I'm most interested in whether you guys think this would work. If it was too warm, I was thinking thatI could always undo the chest strap, and their flexibility would allow me to move around in my quilt fairly easily (I'm a side, back, front, crooked etc. kind of sleeper). Much thanks in advance,
