on the thread "shamless plug" we were talking about quilts that could be worn around camp in place of other insulated clothing.
i wasn`t sure how to transfer my last post from that thread to this new thread, but if you look at that you`ll get the idea.
i posted 4 photos in the gallery under "images for homemade gear forums directions".
this is an idea i`ve been thinking & talking about for a while so i thought i`d better make an attempt to do it.
what you see in the photos is just a single layer of fabric i got from the $1.00 bin, but decided it`s to heavy to be much use.
on this mock-up, there`s no insulation & no collars for the head hole or the arm holes like i described on the other post. but in the home made gear gallery you can see photos of the collar i used on the top cover of an insulated winter hammock.
the adjustable collar works great. fairly easy to make, light weight, & very effective. ...tim
