Thread: NoBul2 or M50

    NoBul2 or M50

    I'm going to have HG make a new UQ for me but I can't decide which fabric to choose!
    I want to keep it as light as possible. What is the weight difference between the two?
    What are the pros & cons of the two fabrics?
    Thanks

    I went with the M50 on Adam's suggestion. I am not farmiliar with NoBul2 so can't comment.

    For me the M50 is comfortable on the skin, light, great at stopping the wind (though I have not been out in gusts greater than 25 mph. It is suppose to do a great job repelling water with the tight weave and DWR coating. My 20* Phoenix (no over stuff) weighs in at 15.4 oz. I couldn't be happier.

    It is on the expensive side.

    I used both for my Phincubator. M50 outer for the wind resistance and Nobul inner for the breathability. I believe the M50 is slightly lighter.
