I had this fabric for more than a year. I started work on this at about the same time…just finished before an anniversary trip to Zion National Park this October.
Some would think of this one as a softshell…I think the fabric is rather stiff.
The fabric from Rocky woods mentioned in a previous post.
Gore® Soft Shell with microfleece liner – Grey
Water repellent, smooth woven face
Waterproof Gore-Tex membrane
I glued the stitches with Seam Grip to weather proof the little holes my sewing needle makes in the goretex membrane.
I used the reflective zippers and sewn zipped pockets, takes some time, but it is actually easier then it “seams”.
Finally happy with the coat and the fact that I got to see some colder weather and wear it.
