My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Re: Strong tent stake....just one for a hexamid
As others have said, I also use Lawson's ti hook stakes and they have worked quite well. However, about a year and a half ago now, I decided to start carrying 2 slightly larger diameter stakes ...

Stating the Obvious
I figure folks like LineLoc's for their simplicity, which means they don't have to tie any knots... just stake out, cinch, and done.

Re: Sound
It really is a great piece of kit. As can be seen here, there are tons of uses for it. I have actually used it as a back wall on an A frame tarp, a beak on a half pyramid, and of course as a ground...

Re: What is your Hexamid bug protection solution?
I wouldn't try using my MLD bug bivy under my Solo Plus Hexamid tarp... or any other A-Frame style bug bivy... it just doesn't work that well... If you don't mind small, enclosed pla...

Re: zpacks rain skirt
It'll always make some noise, but I have never really had an issue with it... especially when it was raining... and yes, it does make a good ground sheet, or an addition to a ground sheet...

SilNet on cuben
I am surprised that you did not find that the SilNet stuck very well to the cuben. Before ZPacks were taping the seams, they sent a tube of SilNet with the shelters so that the buyer could seal it ...

Re: Re: I went to Greg Van Peski/Gossamear Gear slide show at A16
A16 is Adventure 16. Also, it is "Glen" and not "Greg." :) And I am not sure if this is the same video, but here is a video from Glen from a few years back that shows what i...
