My Locale Midwest
About Me My wife and I are originally from MI. Lived in VA for 6 years and really loved the area. But we've just moved back to Michigan, yeah! We couldn't stay away. I'm been an avid backpacker for about 20 years or so. After my first week long trip carrying #60 I started down the lightweight road. I like to make some of my own gear when I can. We love to travel and hike. I've been a designer all my adult life, primarily in the automotive industry but the last 6 years in aerospace.

That pack looks great, very clean. How is the fit. Is it broken in yet? How do you like it so far?

not me
I prefer to have the best setup for each situation. For a dayhike or even a weekend I don't need a framed backpack. In fact I use my good old G4 (no frame)for any week long trips. For #30 or...

yikes!
I suggest that you have soneone fix it that is familiar with cuben fiber, MLD, ZPacks, etc. I would NOT send it back to your vendor. He obviously doesn't know how to work with CF. Good luck!

what I think?
I think they look very professional and very heavy. What do they weigh and what materials did you use?

Some ideas about pot handles replacement? CORK
I read about adding cork pad to strategic areas of your pot on the forum. Sorry, I can't remember who to give credit to. I use a SnowPeak Ti bowl that gets filled up almost to the top for coo...

my opinion
I think it looks like a good design. I like the vestibule idea. Although with the entrance to the tent the way it is you'll be quite exposed to rain, etc. getting in & out. IMO, it needs...
