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.

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: Zpacks Hexamid Duplex slip-slidin'
I had this exact same problem with my SMD Lunar Duo... even a hair of a slope would send the floor sliding... and especially when there were 2 of us inside. And the same as you, I was afraid that e...

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...

Re: Comparison with Titanium

Re: So how do you order them?
Steve, you may have to send him an email at this point. He just sent out his stock to fulfill the KS backers. I am not totally sure, but I figure he will eventually put up an order page for them no...

It's their nature
This is the nature of these types of pads... my GG Thinlight pad, and some other XLPE CCF pads I have are the same way... they attract everything... I imagine the Ridgerest, ZLite, and other simila...
