    Quick question for ya....

    So I have my sleeves and am about to grosgrain them.

    But what length should I make the shock chord? Or are there any pointers I need to keep in mind when making the length?

    Thanks!

    Also, just in case anyone was curious...a xxl jacket with the sleeves removed and in the stuff sack weighed 7.8 Oz.

    Below is a picture of it next to a soda can for size reference...note I squished this bad boy to about the size of small softball.

    just a prediction, but I think this would be perfect for 45-50 f and above.
