Good product. Figured out how to sew crooked wavy seams, but still held up well. Really warm. Day after I made it, camped in low 30 degree weather and was warm and toasty the entire time.
Excellent material. I ordered calendered for outer shell of a sleeping bag and uncalendered for the inside. Worked out perfect: tighter weave for wind resistance and a softer feel inside.
Late review of this purchase because I had to design & sew an under quilt & have finally had a couple of cooler nights to test it. Really happy with the quality of the climashield, very easy to sew & packs down to a very compact size considering it’s a full length under quilt. Delivery was quick (to Australia) & happy to purchase through RSBTR in the future.
The 3/4 under quilt kit was easy to make and fun! Just tried it out camping with my hammock and it is very warm. The online directions said to trim the width of materials. DON'T trim it down! Trimming the width down can make is so the underquilt doesn't encase you fully while in hammock. My suggestion is to trim width for warmer weather climates and keep width if you are going to be in cooler weather.
The underquilt doesnt pack down super small but fits into a stuff sac that's a little less than 1 sq ft.
My favorite part of ordering from Ripstop is the variety of colors. Gotta love the Hot Pink and Robins Egg!
I’ve always been a down guy. I recently made myself an Apex 3.6 quilt and really love it. This is so easy to work with. My wife wanted something a bit warmer, so I made one from 5.0. It’s insanely warm for the weight. Love it. Great service, as always.
