i have a pair of large dri-ducks which are too big, and i hesitate wearing them as they are a pain to get on, on-trail. i use a dri-ducks poncho which is light, breathes exceptionally well, even for a poncho, and covers me and my pack down to mid thigh...
so, i'd like to shave ounces and make my pants easier to get on.
i'd like advice, not so much on the pattern, but attachement options. thinking of just putting some loops at the tops of the legs that i can string to my belt loops and/or use line locks or similar.
should i keep the "crotch" intact?
any other tips/ideas?
