Alright then, it is settled that I'll use silnylon for my sleeves. My sleeve technique and Roger's held 24hrs with a load of 40#. This was not a problem. I'm so far unable to test...

''Argon Silnylon: It would still have the stretching issues I dislike so much! Why? I'm curious, because I think the fabric stretch is essential to absorb wind blasts. It adds toughnes...

True enough, my seam sealing tape might not be needed. it did nothing to Roger's seam technique. It is made for the cold dough. It will (according to the manufacturer) still adhere at -10C'...

Re: myog mountaineering cuben tunnel tent?
Roger, your seam has not moved at all overnight. I'll take it down and see how I can better apply the tape to it or to a new testing strip if needed. But I do think that James is right for the ...

I just tested Roger's technique for the sleeve attachment and... The reinforcing tape under the fly (on top in my testing) started to peel of almost instantly at 20lbs of load. I'll let it ...

Alright Roger, I'll test a short section that would mimic 2 fly panels that would meet vertically (glued and sewed) together with a silnylon sleeve on the outside of that sandwich and taped und...

hi Roger, I'm glad to get your feedback. And I'm glad to be wrong at this stage of the project. 970N is from the wind only, what about adding some snow loading into the mix? Also, too ma...
