  1. I am pretty sure It is strong enough for this application. I have my food bag and backpack sealed for the PCT hike this year. I will comment more on durability when I get back. LG, K
  2. I am now testing transfer tape + polycro for backpack sealing. So far results are very promising. Will report back after some months. Big advantage of polycro over DCF is stretch. DCF has almost no stretch, so it is very hard to seal small/micro wrinkles on the backpack. Polycro has a bit worse adhesion to 1163/9485PC tape compared to DCF, but it is still ok. Temperature shrinkage should't be a problem.
  3. Friction is possible explanation but I doubt it is that much of a difference. I think it would be the friction from the needle going back up then. In this case friction is increased mainly because you used thicker needle before rather than needle type. I would say if microtex 80 works fine for you then just use that. Best to turn off the machine when doing that so no accidental pressing on the pedal Not sure if this works with computerized machines.
  4. @Peschamel I'm suprised it works better with the microtex 80 needle. This might also be the cause: Tension discs open up after the presser foot is lifted beyond a certain point. When material is too thick (eg. shoulder straps) tension discs on some household sewing machines tend to open up and loose all upper tension resulting in underside loops like those on your photo. You can check when that happens by pulling the upper thread and slowly lifting the foot. If your machine has adjustable presser foot tension then try to put more tension to it. Method that also works is pressing down on the presser foot with your finger and hand-crank the machine, be careful with that tho

  9. Speaking of linelocs, I mostly finished our small shop, welcome to take a look https://www.adventurexpert.com/ Some prices are a bit higher because we don't buy large quantities.
  10. No they don't hold the 1.5mm at all. Very similar to lineloc3 just ~20% lighter. Nifco tensioners are very good but heavy.
  11. Hey @dc1wh I already replied you on FB
  12. The inner part is made out of 2 pieces because there is a hole where the quilt is turned arround when we finish sewing. At first we had the opening on the side of the quilt but now we figured out it's better to have it there (~28cm from the bottom) because it is more convenient in case of repair. It is slightly more work and ~0.4g more but I think it is well worth it in the long run. Now all of our quilts have this seam except for the haLite where it can be hidden elsewhere.

  13. Huh a lot of replys. As mentioned, companies don't have to accept returns of a special custom items (not listed in our site), but we will accept returns of anything, we just want to find a solution where you as a user and we as designer are satisfied. As I said we try to prevent such situations by good communication before the order. We have presented arguments why we don't like to work like this at the moment, but as this topic went quite far me and Maj decided to make you @Lookas 2 quilts. Further communication if the selected quilt model will work for you will go through email. Thank you guys, for understanding our situation.
  14. Hello everyone, This is some kind of misunderstanding. Maybe because you were talking with me and my brother Maj separately. We don't have any problems with returns, neither with deffective items or if customer is not satisfied with our product as @BruderLeichtfuss already mentioned, we even offered him a free return shipping in case he wouldn't be satisfied with his eLite. Generally ordering from such small custom gear cottages includes a lot of communication between customer and gear maker. I think that's the reason why it is called custom gear and I am glad you @Lookas called me yesterday and we talked almost one hour to clarify what you need. We didn't finish our talk because it was a late afternoon and I promised we will continue discussion today to find the right fitting product for you. The change of our return policy mentioned in the email you received, was an immediate response of Maj to your idea of buying 2 custom quilts of the same length just different widths just to test them and then sending one back. We are a micro company which just started, and we can't afford yet to purposely make items in stock because we are very limited in our resources. We can't operate this way like big corporations do and we don't even want to be like them. Maj just meant to update the policy which would prevent such orders where the 14 day return policy is purposely used to return one item and keep other one, that was all he wanted to do. That's why is important to talk with us into details before purchase and then buy item that we recommend. Running such bussines is not an easy task which also Marco of As Tucas pointed out when he wished us good luck. I think this is also the charm of the cottage gear makers; sharing gear advices and creating some interesting products.Iit is a win-win combination. We have good and friendly relations with all our buyers and they can confirm that. We consider ourselves as a part of european UL community and we prefer to be on a more personal level with costumers than just ordinary buyer-seller relation. That's why we would never do things that would harm our customer. Please be reasonable and understand our point of view. But to make it clear we do accept returns. LG Kajo
  15. There are some options to close the hole at the bottom. Make the cord channel on top of the apex:
