I am in Germany at the moment--will be here for about six more months-- and found a website selling outdoor fabrics here (oh no! an excuse to make gear abroad!)
They have various weights of softshell fabric for sale, and I was wondering if anyone had used this to make a summer underquilt? I was just thinking something for warm nights--or to double up over my winter underquilt, which is really too hot to be taking with me in warm weather.
The fabric I'm looking at is this one:
which is supposed to be elastic-y, wind and water resistant, and breathable.
10.5 oz per square meter. Weight is a little much maybe, but I am very small, 5' tall, so I wouldn't need it to be too large.
