1.5 lb stuff sack in
I use planer board line as well. Made of Dacron.
Thanks. Nice pictures!
Quite happy. Blends in nicely.
That's where I started my Flecktarn fascination too. Paintball!!
I have more ;)
I narrowed the fabric. 70" is too wide. Went to 63"
Finished my second one yesterday.
Thought I would give my impressions on it.
The material is expensive. Got it from RSBTR but I will attest to its uniqueness. It isn't as stretchy as normal 1.1....
And yes... No snow that day!
I had a request for one and up till now have been focusing on quilts (like crazy) and basic hammocks. Customer decided on a Flecktarn to go with his full length CS5 quilt. He didn't want the quilt in...
Degreaser (citrusy kind) and try using 95-99% rubbing alcohol.
Yes it's allowed. Just be respectful to the Rangers. Some of them are arses. Most are really good.
Congrats on the gear. I order all my stuff from the U.S. And never know what customs is going to charge. Hit or miss at times. Fabric , insulation is always hit since the box is big. Enjoy your gear!!
I took 20" off the ends. 11' RL, and one in between. Already on its way to a new home.
Finished and hanging with shock cord lol. Wind is having fun with it. http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/03/31/6449578b9376cc9a6e03803c1778e474.jpg
That's my couch it's hiding.
Had to make one more for a friend in Ontario. He's always wanted a camo tarp in something different than woodland. Picked up some of the ATAC-FG PU coated nylon from RSBTR and went to work.
Here's an example of how it compresses. Last bit of kit heading out to the customer. Full UQ CS 7.5 / tarp / hammock. http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/03/28/432b7d12f214adb0029eba67a819972f.jpg
You won't be finding that. That licensed fabric is bought out before it's even put through the process. Been looking into it.
A nice feeding machine helps with the slippery fabric but so does the 'slow and steady' mentality. I understand why some use grosgrain but I'd rather not add weight. But it would lessen the time...
I borrowed my wife's but it didn't work well at all. ;)
I used fishing coated wire. You buy a small roll for 4$. For making leaders and such. Works good for zing it.
I've got to put the tie outs on and make a stuff sack for it. I'll try setting it up but our weather is a bit off at the moment. I'll have it finished today. See what happens :)
I can say it's not your typical 1.1 to work with. No where near the stretch. Very tough stuff.
These go in order:
I think I would like the down close to me then put the poncholiner up as a UQP per say.
Just being careful to not compress the down.
Try both ways and see how it goes
Here's the 7.5. Just got the shipment today. Man does it poof out nice. Unfortunately our lows aren't that low to properly test though....
Don't worry about putting a cord through the side channels (or making side channels for that matter)
You can get away with end channels.
Then sew on grosgrain tabs to the corners to add shock cord,...
Just for information sake a lot of the synthetic quilts are not differentially cut. You mention the jarbridge and I believe that one is not. There is a reference to flipping it for which ever color...
When I make a RL organizer I make it double sided. So the fabric in essence folds over the ridgeline. However I take the large square/rectangle and cut mesh to fit the ends. Then I Hem around the...
Nothing cheating about that! Hang on!
Roll the hem. It keeps the edges from fraying and helps strengthen the edges.
I'm so pumped to give the 7.5 a go, customer said push it so it's a go outside as soon as it's finished and ready. I'll give you an update. (Awaiting shipment)
I'm making them to match the hammocks. Half (insert hammock mat -ie multicam ) and other half HyperD to match inside of quilt with a loop to hook up. I too only need a smaller pillow for
My neck and...
Canadian customs are brutal. They are getting nasty. Anything over 50$ now has a chance of getting nailed. I won't say what I got hit with on a used greylock 3, a new mt Washington 4 or a EE TQ. Not...
If used on the outside, wind will blow through an Uncalendared 1.0 and rob your heat. Something to consider.
It actually does sew faster... A lot faster. Plus all the work I was putting through the machine caused problems with the IDT system (walker foot).
1600 spm of the janome plus auto cutting creates...
Looks great! It's nice to get out. Spring is on its way!
I'll know shortly. I have the shell for a 82" x 56" full size in multicam awaiting my shipment from RSBTR. I'm hoping for 10f from it. Up in Canada we may still hit some cold so if my customer is...
I traded up from my Pfaff select 4.2 to a janome professional 1600. What a difference. Shortened my time making an UQ shell in half....
You bet. I have two of their quilts.
I have made plenty of hammocks from this material and have never seen this happen. Maybe talk to Kyle at RSBTR.
And make sure the pressure of the upper arm is pushing down as hard as possible. Should feed ok
Cool. Kinda like hammockfan's tree anchors but in a cinch buckle. Nice!
It stretches out the quilt and prevents the accordion affect/bunching of the quilt from gravity. JRB has a vid on their webpage showing how to do it and how it works.
This is also to stick in a snow cave or wherever. So you want the bottom waterproof. I just wasn't sure about the durability over the long haul. But I guess if it's a minimal use item and it develops...
I wonder if a 1.9 PU coated bottom might be better. Just heavier.
First I want to say please no guessing on this one. Hoping I can get some
experience in play for this.
I am thinking of making a Bivy Sack and the bottom should be waterproof which means
It's your top tension that makes a mess on the bottom. Tighten the top tension.
Anyone else found that different hammocks sometimes changes what pillows are more comfortable?
