Spinn Tex stuff sack?
Just made a stuff sack for my down quilt with Ayce's, er... Thru-hiker.com, kit of Premium 0.7 oz SpinnTex Fabric ("SpinnTex is a premium ultralite silicone impregnated ripstop").
Man this stuff is thin! and lightweight! and... :( white, and slippery!!!
Will it hold up? :confused:
Anybody have any trail experience with a stuff sack of Spinn Tex?
I followed the instructions, except that I made a rolled seam everywhere.
ps. my "Red River George" underquilt, 1.5 pounds with 15 oz of down, 2.5+" of loft, fits into the "standard' ayce 26x21" sack with room to spare.
I like it. Is your name George? :D
"Red River George"
Gorgey, porgie, puddin & pie...;)
Have you ever wondered why "Hooked on Phonics" isn't spelled like it sounds... Fonics? jesh, what is the world coming to?
from what i remember spinntex is what we would call silpoly. it is the same silicone process silnlyon goes through but to a polyester ripstop instead.
Yup, Spinntex is derived from sailcloth, ie spinnaker (hence the name), and uses polyester (lower stretch than nylon, especially when wet) instead of standard nylon.
