I’ve made a couple new videos to answer common questions about the DIY Packraft fabrics and my heat sealing technique, and also one showing the different valves and how they work.
These videos are longer than my usual how-to videos, and they’re unscripted so I ramble a bit, but you get to see me doing stuff in real-time, which should make it easy to follow if you have the patience to sit through them.
