As I'm partially done with my tarp, I'm looking to my next two projects - a TQ and 3/4 UQ. I don't have the cash to do down for either, so I'm planning on doing them both as Climashield XP (the 5 oz stuff) from thruhiker.com.
I'd like to post my plan and see if anyone has any suggestions or corrections before making my order, so that it saves money and turns out well.
Currently, my plan is to use silnylon 1.1 for my top shell of my TQ and for both layers of my UQ. I'm looking at either completely uncoated nylon for the bottom of the TQ shell or something else that is breathable. I'd prefer to use all 1.1 silnylon, but my understanding is that I shouldn't.Using the right fabrics in the right place is my greatest concern.
The TQ will follow the basic dimensions of a mummy bag I currently use that fits well, minus the back area from the knees up. My footbox will be able to be opened up for hot climates/months. The UQ will have only a channel on the long sides and elastic on the two shorter sides.
Any adjustments I should make?
