    Thanks, Grizz! Your seal of approval gives me great confidence in this abnormal setup. :laugh:

    My whoopies nestle snugly behind the MSHs--no risk of them jumping onto the toggle.

    In case you haven't handled a piece of Reflectix, I'll point out that it's a bit noisy and crinkly. Something to think about when considering it for a sleeping pad.

    I suggest doing the ridgeline seam first. In case something disastrous happens and you need to cut the seam out, you still have the full width of fabric to work with.

    I just tossed the 40 or so sets I have left onto the scale. Looks like they weight less than a gram per pair, meaning a stud snap and socket snap together.

    The M50 isn't too terrible to work with, pretty similar to silnylon in terms of slipperiness. The fabric has a right and wrong side. The stuff I got from thru-hiker.com had a small label on the face...
