I was wondering what influences you guys in your choice of fabric, and which ones you consider to be the best?
For most things, I would want a quiet, green/earthy-coloured fabric. This rules out cuben fibre, which is always white from what I've seen; and the lighter silnylons - the ones I've found in the UK below 50gsm have all been the 'crisp' type, ie. crackly and noisy.
The lightest suitable fabrics I've found are 50gsm green silnylon (1.9oz finished weight); or for a breathable jacket, it would be 70gsm black Epic Endurance (2.5oz finished).
Is this the same as what you have in the USA, or am I missing a trick?
