Very please with the product so far, I had fair warning that it can be difficult to sew and to use tissue paper as a backing. With this advice, fabrication went smoothly. I made the quilt 6' 6" long and used the entire 58" (minus 1 - 2" for seams) width for my quilt. Not sure if it matters, but I put the shiny side of the material facing the insulation. This material feels very cool and soft to the touch and the color looks just like the pictures on the website. The finished product looks VERY professional, love it. I am taking my hiking quilt on a section hike of the AT next week and will field test the quilt. Quilt weight in at less than 1.5 lbs and I expect it to be good down (pun not intended) to 30 degrees.
I am very pleased with the ease of doing business with Ripstop. They carry good products and are reasonably priced.
I used this material to make a down quilt. It is exactly what I was looking for. I couldn't be happier with the finished product
I have been looking FOR YEARS for a light weight waterproof material not to go up the himalayas but to cycle under eventual heavy rain in Paris! I have been reading ALL the comments ( I don't understand everything because some are highly specific and detailed but I hope I have found THE miracle material I was looking for ( totally waterproof light weight for an ELEGANT raincoat I designed ( made one for my daughter and her friends asked her which "trade mark" it was!) meant to be folded in the handbag in case of heavy shower for cyclist and the extra luck is to see so many beautiful colors! Impossible to find such thing in our backward France and even in rainy England... Please confirm it will be suitable for my project! THANKS
I used this on a lightweight quilt with the apex insulation. This material looks like plastic, and is very translucent, but it really soft and feels comfortable next to the skin.
