    CS90 vs UL argon

    A cursory search yielded minimal results..... something about a chubby nephew?....so Ill ask you fine fellows and ladies.

    Any input on the durability of these fabrics at all?

    I know CS90 is heavier duty but how much?

    Also, does anyone know what the total average weight savings of say... a top quilt built with UL vs CS90 would be?

    A chubby nephew top quilt...nice... I've been messing around with CS90, but not sure about the weight calculations, haven't worked with UL. The CS90 is tough stuff though!

    cool thanks CountryRoads.
    I wish I knew about the UL stuff.
    Sounds really nice but you never know I guess.

    Now I am introducing 15D and it is called ARGON CS90, It will be available in three colors, Red, Orange, and Black. It weighs about .90 ounces per yard. I think it will be strong enough to use as a light hammock for a skinny person. It is meant to be quilt shell though.

    Looks like UL on the inside and CS90 on the outside is the best choice for me.
    Thanks again
