looking to make some cuben fiber stuff sacks, and other things.
I'm curious as to what the benefits are to sewing cuben, versus just taping?
Stuff sacks from z-packs are bonded on the bottom and side seams, but sewn around the draw cord channel. Sacks from MLD are bonded on the draw cord seams and side seams, but the bottom seam is sewn and taped.
Are there benefits gained to sewing any or all of the seams? I understand you'd need to sew if you want to attach something non-cuben, like zippers or pull tabs or grosgrain or something - you can't bond something that isn't cuben to something that is - but why should someone consider sewing the draw cord channel, or the bottom or side seam?
