1p pyramid Prototype on 08/28/2011 09:18:53 MDT Print View

THis is the first pyramid i had made, and using spinnaker .75oz to test the shape and it size, weight around 400g without poles, when the final version will use CT1k.18/NM.32 0.83oz, weight may be similar, But it can keep the sun away !

size 270x160cm

That looks very well made, I dig the double doors. It will be cool to see your final version in cuben. Nicely done.

@Timothy

I don't think adding vents will really do much in terms of reducing condensation.

Smoking pyramid, very nice!

Are you planning to use a double door net tent inside?
It looks really nice. Nothing like the simplicity of a Pyramid.

thanks all! on 08/31/2011 08:53:52 MDT Print View

@James,
if by adding vent at the peak there and set the pyramid little bit above the ground it will close to a Tarp function not 100% like a tarp, but i believe it help somehow of the condensation

@ Franco,
Size is 270x160x130

@ Brian
Nesting still thinking how to make it as light as possible. if by adding a nesting tent inside, of coz it should have a double door to fit the pyramid dual door design.

That is what I suspected by looking at your pics and the angle of the walls.
I would strongly suggest that before you make a Cuben version you spend some time inside the prototype on top of the mat you intend to use and inside the sleeping bag too.
Hint : at 5'8" I my shoulders would touch the walls even without a mat under me.
(if you have a shorter torso than legs you will fit better)
