    Chiffon material for UQ liner?

    Anyone know if this stuff is durable enough for the inside of an UQ? Sure is light, appears comfy and not expensive.

    Thanks in advance!

    Perusing specs from multiple sources, and similarly thinking: "If there was ever an unstressed fabric, beside suit liners, it must be the inside of an UQ."

    Well, turns out that for weight and price, rip-stop nylon, about 1.1 is as light as most suiting liners, for example; and then, if calendered, it is down-proof too. There may just not be ordinary textiles to compete, when you also consider negatives of some alternatives, such as response to water.
