    This thread motivated me to sacrifice one of my Patrol bags and convert it to a top quilt. I removed the zippers, snaps, and hood and crudely hand sewed some quilt binding along the cut edges. It...

    'Redoleary' showed me this one. It's UCR's to replace the prussics to adjust the tarp along the ridge line. For me, it repositions more easily and I like the way it looks.

    Another thing. I think the footbox style will make a difference. I think the material all starts out the same but a sewn footbox shortens the finished length less than the drawstring footbox.
