You spend a lot of time glassing javalina? Or you have, once, maybe twice?I wear some old Sitka Kelvins on those cold mornings glassing up javelina in winter or late hunts.
I would agree with you on the cost. Only thing is I already have some apex, and I have the fabric for the inner and outer shells.View attachment 513711 View attachment 513713
I've been doing them with 850 fill down with pretty good success. Use 4 oz total and I've been warm standing still in sub zero Temps. Haven't gotten them wet so I can say how well the dwr fabric or hyperdry down really works. Cost wise I would say your not much better off going synthetic. These stuff down to slightly bigger than a nalgene
Well thats a pretty good reason to go apex. I've gone through a few patterns. Ultimately I cut up a pair of hospital scrubs for the first pattern and then modified it over a couple generations. What fabric are you gonna use for shell and inner?I would agree with you on the cost. Only thing is I already have some apex, and I have the fabric for the inner and outer shells.
where did you get your pattern for your pants? they look great. I have plans for a down jacket, and if i have any supplies left I may try some down pants
I have grown weary of the bovine excrement you post; it lowers the appeal of this forum and herein choose to completely ignore you.You spend a lot of time glassing javalina? Or you have, once, maybe twice?
I have a vest pattern from green pepper that I am going to use. Figured the sleeves would be easy enough to figure out without a pattern.I have some 800 fill coming from ripstop right now, never ordered it from them before, usually use " loose goose" eager to see if there is any difference. What are ya gonna use for the jacket pattern?
