Pole Sleeves, Seams, and Ends for Dome Tent
Many folks around here have much more experience than me but here is my 2 cent: I used a 1.5inch (maybe slightly less) sleeve for my cuben tunnel. But the poles used are only 0.292'' in di...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Pack Fabric Selection
Fwiw, I used VX21 for the bottom of 3 of my home made packs. So far no complaints! It was easy to work with and is durable enough for my needs. I do not baby my packs although I'm concious of t...
