Here's one that would have Moondog drooling if only it was XXXXL.

Not Gumtree but a vintage find at our local Salvos store..... I thought there was a thread a while back for op-shop finds? Didn't open the box to check it, but for $1 I'm tempted to go back and buy it.

On Gumtree - Integral Designs Mk 1 Mountaineering tent - single skin eVent fabric. I believe this is now owned by Rab and branded as Latok Summit.

SILK LINERS

Not Gumtree but not sure where to put it:

Dropped by Kathmandu Adelaide y/day and they're having a Sale but a biggee I think.

One size sleeping bag silk liners down 40% from $160 to $95. Still dear of course but feather light, quick drying, robust, warm and breathing, unlike synthetic.

I wonder if they can be got from o/seas for substantially less - good quality?

If you are into a bit of MYO, search ebay for 2nd hand silk sari's. Out of India is better, at least 4.5m in length to allow for the highly decorative end section and as wide as you can find. Doesn't really matter what colour or colours. Seams down each side and across the bottom, hem at top and you are done. Approx 2 years ago I got one, plain woven apart from borders and pallu, $17 delivered if I recall correctly. Unfortunately I have about a dozen now, but they are shirts, tops, skirts etc. The first is a SB liner with foot box rather than just a flat rectangle tho.

Thanks heaps for the tip, Gaye. That's the one I've been looking for! :)
