    The wife and I made two of these this weekend for our backpacking trip next week. It took us roughly 7 hours to do two of them. Thank goodness she can operate a sewing machine!

    I just finished making the third of these. Last one took 4 hours, including breaks. It made all the difference in the world for my porch setup on our cool summer evenings. Can't wait to test it out and see how low I can go padless!

    Just read the whole thread....fascinating. I am going to look for suppliers in Canada but if there isn't the price from DIY Gear Supply looks doable. Thanks to everyone that has offered input on this.

    Cheers,

    Cheers,
    DIY Gear Supply is great. Their website doesn't support Canadian orders but just take a screen print of what your shopping cart is and email it to them. They'll quote you shipping and if you're ok with it send you a Paypal invoice. I got my Insultex and ripstop yesterday and spent the last 2 nights sewing. I went with a 6 foot long quilt. I think it turned out pretty well. I added "Triangle Thingies" from AHE. Thursday night's my first test hang with it.

    Re: IX Underquilt - DIY

    After reading MacEntyre's posts on using PPEF, I'm wondering where you find the 1/32x60" stuff without buying a 2000' roll of it for $350+. I'm aware you can get IX from DIY gear, which might be a better answer for noob thread injector users like me. I'm thinking the PPEF might be less expensive, and very slightly lighter.

    I figure I need about 5-6 yards to make a three-layer UQ, but haven't found anyone on the internet offering short lengths, other than the 12" variety used for wrapping plates for shipment, or the thicker stuff used for floor underlayment.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!
    I found a good FREE source for PPEF: mortuaries! Caskets come wrapped in a large, solid sheet of PPEF. They just throw that away, so asking them to save it for you might be a good way to get it. It is about the weight of the stuff in which new TVs are wrapped.

    I thought I'd share...



    I thought that having something to completely cover head-to-foot would be nice. Now I need to take it out and try it.

    Man, wish I had this when I did mine a few months back! Nice work!
