    I'm not familiar with the term "celebrated" with respect to fabrics, but if you are talking about a coated ripstop v. uncoated a lot of DIY instructions include coated for the outside (facing the elements) and uncoated for the inside (facing you). The idea is to reduce moisture coming in from outside and breathability on the inside to combat condensation.

    No, you don't need calendared for Climashield, though it feels nicer and has a better finish as well as more often having a DWR to it than non-calendared.

    I would be very reluctant to use this approach. Any moisture that "breaths" through the inside would have no place to go but into the insulation. At the very least, a breathable panel on the outside would be needed.

    I would go with breathable on both sides for 3 season and non-breathable on both sides for the winter (when temperatures never approach freezing, say 20*F and below) when you need to control the body humidity anyway. That is how I approach it anyway.

    I might not have phrased it correctly, but I am not sure if your approach would do anything to prevent or reduce moisture penetrating from outside. The coated side is on the outside, facing old man winter, summer, etc. The non coated side faces the inside and breathes to prevent condensation and moisture that is in the panel to escape. The breathing part is an exchange of air flow, not just one direction so air and moisture would can go into and out of the insulation panel. I have made some quilts using that style and they have performed well.
    Happy Trails to one and all.

    Thanks for the help. I'll prolly use breathable ripstop for the inner and outer layer.
