Vapor Barier Shirt on 01/02/2012 07:54:51 MST Print View

I'm looking to hire someone that can make me a VB shirt. I myself am pretty much worthless with a thread and needle so any help would be much appreciated!

A bit about the VB shirt I'd want:

unlined sillnylon
XL long
38" sleeves
48" chest
25" torso length
18" neck
pit, forarm, and chest vents with zippers
unlined sillnylon
collar, no hood

If you're good with a needle and thread or know someone who is let me know!

I can't do this for you, but...

What's with all the vents? Are you planning on using this as a rain shirt too?

Other things you should specify are the fit, unless you want the chest to measure exactly 48 inches. It's confusing that you specify dimensions, but also XL long.

No entry zipper?

Any elastic for the wrists or waist?

The vents are used for regulating temperature while wearing the garment. Very important if you're planning on hiking while wearing a VB shirt.

The measurements given are to provide a general idea of the size I need. If someone where to make the garment for me we'd discuss the exact size.

The garment would be a pull over using the chest zipper to enlarge the head opening.

As the garment would be a VBL elastic at the wrists and waist is a given. If someone where to make the garment I'd ask them to have simple velcro closures on the writs to provide adjustable ventilation.
