Just got done with the finishing touches on my MYOG Duomid. I am really happy with the end result. 18.5 oz and only $60 in materials. I was looking around for the ideal 1+ person shelter for backpacking and cycling. I knew it needed 1 pole to minimize weight for cycling, full coverage, ample room, minimal weight, and a very fast setup that doesn't require an inner tent to go up first or at the same time. I considered lots of other designs: Alphamid, Hexamid w/ beak, SMD Vamp, Lightheart Solo shaped tarp, scaled up Wild Oasis, and variations on the GG SpinnShelter. The Duomid design just met every aspect of importance better than any of the other designs, along with some bonus awesomeness I didn't think about before making it (It's so tall I can sit in my Vaude camp chair inside!). Hat's off to Ron Bell for this great design.
The vent uses a piece of plastic coat hanger inside a sleeve to stay open. The sleeve attaches with velcro. I omitted the velcro vent closure.
The ever important zipper saving buckle. Line locs make life so much easier too!
