These are a combination of 3oz climashield insulation, a nylon taffeta from aliexpress, and a little bit of bug netting as mesh. At 188g or 6.63oz, these are INSANELY WARM for their weight. My goodness. These are mostly in camp … Continue reading “MYOG Insulated Winter Pants [188g / 6.63oz]” →
Same deal as the shirt but less flexible, IMO, because warm leggings don’t fill as much of a use case for a typical backpacker doing longer days / less camp time. These have been stellar for winter hiking + snowboarding … Continue reading “MYOG Midweight Leggings [227g / 8oz]” →
This is a 4-way stretch grid mid-weight fleece active layer. I grabbed this material on discount from Seattle Fabrics. This is a surprisingly warm and comfortable material with a lot of stretch.

Made and finally tested a 7.5×9 0.51oz/yard DCF tarp. Final weight is 166g or 5.85oz. I bonded the panels with Loctite U-09FL, used mostly DCF for all the lineloc and guyout points (thanksfor the tip John), and overall I love … Continue reading “7.5×9 DCF Flat Tarp [166g / 5.85oz]” →
