What do you guys think about a Cuben Rain Skirt? I have some Cuben (CT2K.08) left over from another project and thought I could use this for a Rain Skirt. If I would do so, I would pair it with some chaps as well but I’m worried about the strength of the Cuben. Would it be puncture resistant enough? With regards to abrasion, I thought of using a small patch of the lightest Cordura I can find at the lower end of the chaps, especially on the in-side, just like gaiters have. I would wait to find out how the Cuben behaves and, when time comes and it would work out to be necessary, I would glue (or sew) this patch afterwards.
And...... How would you cinch it around the waist? Thought about making a hem and use some narrow elastic braid like this (http://www.extremtextil.de/catalog/Braids/Elastics/Elastic-braid-010mm::526.html), or maybe a thin shock cord but...... Wouldn’t that tear the Cuben hem?
