    I am thinking about make up a 3 layer version of these with the draft tubes on all sides. One question I have is I would like to make it a little longer than the 60 and try to cover my feet a little. Since the IX comes 60" wide and I would probably make it a little longer than that what is the best way to lay it out to minimize lose of fabric. Can the middle layer be multiple sheets? Hate to have a lot of waste.

    What's the approximate cost of this as the directions set it up?

    I poked around yesterday on backwoodsdaydreamer.com looking at things. I had planned to make channels from the ripstop so I left that off my list. Seems quite affordable to me. Plan on digging into the project next month.

    4 yards IX - 25.4
    3 yards 1.1 2nds - 9.6
    24' 1/8 shock cord - 6
    3 eliptical cord locks - .69

    total w/o shipping - 41.69

    Yeah after I asked I removed my head from butt and headed over to them and checked prices... I ball parked 40 which is about the same price a poncho liner under quilt would cost, and about a 1/2 lb less and appears to be less bulk as well... I wonder what 2 layers of it would be good for temperature wise...

    Yeah, it's just like a sheet of fabric as far as sewing goes - you can sew scraps together easy to make whatever full size you want. And if it's covered in a shell material, no one will be the wiser.

    For those of you that have made a two layer with an optional removable third layer... Did you find that the cuts on the outside and middle layer hugged you enough and prevented leaks around you...

    I'm thinking about snaps to attach the third layer in is there anything bad about that idea... I am trying to decide between velcro and snaps and they both have their pluses and minuses... I'm thinking the snaps will hold to it the exact position better than the velcro and i don't like the snagging fuzzing part of velcro...

    Would you wrap the third layer in a protective layer on one side or just leave it open since it shouldn't be exposed to the elements very often...
