    Announcement: Canvas Products for Extreme Cold

    Folks, I found a source of high quality, lightweight, white cotton fabric that weighs 4 oz per square yard and has a thread count of about 100. It's much higher quality and lighter weight than the canvas that I used to make my anoraks. It is similar to the Egyptian cotton that I used to make FourDog's Canvas Sock with SEEP.

    The new Canvas Gear, including Anoraks, Mukluks and Hammock Socks, are listed on the Molly Mac Gear web site.

    Pictures, man, Pictures!
    (and not the ones I took of you. We deserve a better looking model.)

    No, seriously, congratulations on a new line of products Mac!

    Hey MacEntyre

    How are you going to handle the sizing on the Anoraks and Mukluks? Will they be custom made to measurements provided by the buyer?

    One thing I have learned with winter camping is that light weight and ultralight terms really don't apply.

    Cheers

    Brian
