Help with my first quilt on 09/15/2006 15:59:21 MDT Print View

I bought nylon fabric from Thru-Hiker.com called Momentum at 0.0 oz/sy. It came today! It's really nice looking, very thin fabric. But I have a dilemma.

The fabric is slick and shiny on one side and has a dull matte finish on the other. Being a complete newbie at MYOG, I don't know which side would be best for next to skin.

I'm sure some of you experts out there like Bill (Mr. MYOG) Fornshell, have used this and can give me advice.

Hey Michael,

The Momentum90 is awesome. I just finished a down quilt with it, and the matte side is the "right" side. You'll want it facing out on both the shell and the liner, with the shiny side facing the insulation sandwiched between.

Thanks Ben,

I was kind of leaning that way but I didn't want to get out on the trail and someone say, "Nice quilt, but why did you sew the Momentum backwards?" Then I would have to make up something really fast. :-)

BTW since this is my first, I'm using the Climashield XP for insulation.

Thanks again!

Michael,

That is awesome! You've got to post on how the project turns out, and especially about the performance of the Climashield. That's a future project - a couple of synthetic quilts.

0.0 oz!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! WOWWWWWWWWWW!!!


Where can I get some of this weightless matter?? Heck, if I can get some of this then I have solved the mystery of dark matter in the universe. The gravitational contstant is wrong!! Michael Davis is a genius!!!


:D

Where to get it? on 09/16/2006 20:21:50 MDT Print View

I would try AntiGravityGear.com

Just kidding. That was suppossed to be 0.9 oz/sy

Who's idea was it to put the "0" next to the "9" :-)

Its made from woven muons. It is fairly light, but is has the annoying characteristic of passing right through the earth with no resistance.

Gets cold like that.

I think you might want to avoid the neutrino fabric for _that_ reason, muons tend to experince rapid decay, but will interact with most solid substances. (are there too many scientists on this list?)

You say neutrino, I say muon, lets call the whole thing off! on 09/21/2006 09:05:08 MDT Print View

You're right. I vaguely knew that was the wrong name, but couldn't think of the other one.

Have you seen the new Higgs boson heavy water purifier?

I've got this windshirt made from strings only about a Planck length thick; it actually absorbs the wind into 10-dimensional space.

Well, this is all theoretical right now, but man, is it sweet.

>>"10 dimensional"

or perhaps 11 dimensions??? a reference, perhaps, to "branes" and "String theory" - the latest "craze" in the insane world of grand "Unification" within the Physics community was my thought when i read the post mentioning "10 dimensional".
