The one I used is made of nylon supplex. Yeah don't buy that stuff. It said WPB, but it is not. It also weighs a lot. The 9' x 80" piece I used weighed in at about 2.5 lbs. I finally found some ripstop at Walmart today. I am going to sew one out of ripstop and try it out soon. I am wondering how much difference it will make. I think being able to close the heas end will make a big difference.
I just sewed a big tube that was 9 feet long by 80" in circumference. My next version is going to have a draw string closure. I bought enough to make 3 versions. I am going to try the rectangle again, then something more pod shaped to save weight. Unless I put a zipper in, I will still have to leave the open head end the same size.
Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?
