    So I’m guessing that you have enough material that the length of the fleece , combined with the length of your continuous loops is making up the gap normally provided by your bridge. How long is your saddle, width wise?

    I don't know the exact measurement, but probably 30-36".

    I just made one last night at 30", I wouldn't make it any smaller. I also have one at 38" that is pretty long. I have a 36" waist.

    So there is a fair amount of sewing involved in this? I love how small it is but not sure I can sew

    You can do it without any sewing, look for Dave's video, I'll see if I can find the link.

    I'm a big fan of cheap, light and DIY, hard to beat even if you don't like it right away, it's still worth trying.

    Not yet, dealing with a distraction at the moment, but I'm pretty sure it's going to be great.

    Can I ask what climbing method and platform you use? And what pack you use to pack it all in? After reading that WTH article it's clear that you go further than the average dude, so that really piqued my interest.

    Thanks
