    Sewing Cuben Fiber

    I need some advice from the pros...

    I have a Cuben Fiber stuff sack from Zpacks that I use for my extra clothing bag. I'd like to sew a small loop of Grosgrain into the bottom of it so that I can clip it to a micro carabiner on some shock cord, and use it as a Peak Bag at night.

    Is there anything special I need to know about sewing Cuben Fiber? I assume use the smallest needle possible. I will probably do it by hand, since that'd be easier than dragging out the girlfriend's sewing machine.

    Thanks

    Keep the thread holes spaced as far apart as you can get them and still do the work, and I recommend some seam seal to help strengthen the area.
