This will be my first DIY quilt!! I've sold the ps3, the xbox, a tarp, a bag and a pad, with the hope of upgrading to a lighter top quilt. Now i have that ability. I want to go with a homemade for 3 season use w/ momentum and 900FP down. I want to go as light as possible. I originally considered cuben, but i just don't like the idea of a non-breatheable fabric on a quilt. Maybe for winter, but not for three season use.
1. What features would you add if you could go back and remake yours?
2. How wide would you make the shoulders? Im thinking of a 32" footbox right now and 46" wide @ shoulder.
3. What is the difference between momentum tafetta and momentum ripstop?
4. I would like a tapered bottom to save weight. So if anyone can point me to a guide on how to do that, that would be great.
So guys/gals feel free to help me engineer this baby, i was gonna order a nunatak, but after seeing @ what price i could diy, i backed out. Help me pimp my top quilt!
