Re: Big Sky Soul x2 vs Seedhouse SL2
The value option Soul X2 uses 40D PU-coated nylon for the floor - that should be pretty durable. According to this old BPL article, the Seedhouse SL1 uses a 30D PU-coated/silicone impregnated floor...

Re: Re: Lightweight Gear at REI
I don't think it's actually the gear that is heavy. It's all the extra stuff novice backpackers take. You don't have to know what cuben fiber is to be light Let's say you buy...

Re: Re: First trip out west
