    UQ Protector?

    I’m looking at the 2QZQ UQP’s and I was wondering if someone could explain the advantages/disadvantages between the ripstop and the Silnylon UQ Protectors from 2QZQ?

    Silnylon won’t breath making it better for “extreme” weather where the ripstop is not so “extreme”?

    Thanks in advance for the help and info!

    I have both. Honestly, I really only use the breathable one. With The non-breathable, I get too much condensation. Now the breathable one I highly recommend! It offers decent splash protection and gives me an additional 10 degrees of warmth by blocking the wind.

    +1 on sidewinder's recommendation. I started with the silnylon version and realized I don't properly manage the vapor barrier properties so it was wet from the inside come morning. The breathable one is great and adds just a little extra warmth. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet but I think I can use this UQP with just a poncho liner to rig up a warm weather setup.

    Thanks for the advice! I just placed my order for a breathable version.
