Whats the lightest tarp you have made?
Do you make poncho tarps? I have an ID Ponsho Tarp I have used in the jungle, mountains and desert. It weighs 8 oz. I was hoping to replace it with a lighter tarp and also carry those cheap plastic ponch tarps as a system.
As far as the quilting loops I don't feel it is needed to keep the insulation in place. Heavier stuff like 3D or Polorgaurd needs it.
Yes but he uses 3D until recently switching to climashield I don't think the literature has been updated. So far I have a Fanatic Fringe quilt which is polorgaurd and a climashield quilt by me that I have not had any problems with for the years I 've had them. None have loops.
I don't use stuff sacks for my quilts. I put it in the bottom of the pack (Fanatic Fringe Alpine Trail) and put my gear on top only compressing what little space the rest of my gear takes up. Keeps the pack filled out even too.
