Using some pre quilted hollow fiber insulation and some Camo surplus nylon, sewed up a half bag. Fits over my down bag and ties to the side loops so it won’t slip off in the night. Allows extra insulation and weather resistance with minimal weight. My down jacket can serve as insulation on the top half.
Weighs 17 ounces.
The fabric is used in tarps and tents for hard use applications. Outdoor schools, rentals etc. Custom made in small batches or seasonally available in stock. Current color is yellow.
I bought 4 MSR ground hog stakes for my family to use with a pyramid tarp.
This is a quick simple case you can make to protect the rest of your gear from the stake points.
No drawcord, just a bit of cordura with an opening partly down one side. With 50 feet of light nylon or polyester cord to tie around rocks, logs and trees, I have what I need to anchor the tent in heavy weather.
