JRB Springer Mods
Not going to bother posting a photo on just this part but I do have a plan created for all of the mods to this quilt.
First step this evening was easy, remove the useless Omnitape. I found the Omnitape not to hold very well where I wanted it to. When I bought it I liked the idea but after using it as a ground pounder (it's intended purpose) I find the stuff just doesn't hold when tossing and turning.
With the tape removed I cut the weight 1.8 ounces by my scale.
Tomorrow I begin adding additional down to the baffles. I have 7 ounces total of 750+ fill.
My intention is to first add down to the baffles and make sure I am on the right track. If that goes well, then I intend to remove a large portion of the bottom and created a sewn footbox.
My hope is that by removing the omnitape and then creating a proper tapered footbox, the weight loss will offset the gain of the new down holding the total weight to 23 ounces.
Did you buy the JRB quilt with this modification in mind to do, or is this an older piece of gear that you are trying to make better??
I guess I'm confused because it would seem that you want a different quilt than what the JRB quilt is and you are doing a lot of work to make it change.
Warm Soda, see this thread: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=15021 for the lead-in to this project.
Grinch, it sounds like a plan - good luck.
