MYOG cuben/momentum bivy finished! on 01/15/2010 16:01:08 MST Print View

I just finished my MYOG .6 cuben and momentum bivy! Yay :)bivy1bivy2bivy3
I was hoping it would weigh in at just under four ounces... but Piggy went and shed his dog hairs all over it... then again, maybe it was that full zipper ;)

Nice work, I really like the way you incorporated the momentum into the upper layer.

Wow! Thanks Gentleman! I love my new sewing machine! Really wish I could make a nice three-piece suit... but I fear that a backpack is next in the queue ;)

That is one nice looking bivy...the design is unique. I like the way the momentum lays. Any reason for the shape? trying to max the cuben usage...going for a cool affect?

Thanks Jamie! Was certainly trying to max cuben usage without sacrificing breathability... and trying to keep it at around 4 ounces with a zip ;)

Wow! The bivy looks almost as good as Piggy. Bet you don't like him ( MR Piggy ) a bit right?

Love the style and the way the momentum is just where you need it for ventilation with the cuben wrapping up and partly over giving plenty of protection from spray and etc.

Fancy curves!

Cuben? on 01/17/2010 14:09:53 MST Print View

Curious where you picked up the cuben from?

Really nice setup. Very very well done! Love it!

Thank you Cola and Eric!

The cuben came from Joe at Zpacks.com.

Piggy is a handful, but he's a great pooch! I owe him a Dyneema dog pack... so he tells me ;) I can't argue with a face like his...pig
...though my dad still insists that he looks like a sack of potatoes

Piggy is pretty irresistable. Scoutdog sends her regards!

awesome! on 08/26/2011 17:37:46 MDT Print View

I'm looking to make something very similar, and field reports? hows the breathability?

I know this is a year old, but I'm hoping your still active!
