First time Cuben Fly (REI T2 Plus) on 07/28/2012 20:39:22 MDT Print View

Looking to possibly replace the current fly on the T2 Plus with a cuben fiber one, I figure it should probably cut around 16oz from the heavy 24oz fly of the tent. I love the tent and am very interested in experimenting to bring the weight down further.

For a first time builder are there any tips/tricks that people would be kind enough to direct me to? This could be a fun project for sure. If I'm unable to complete it I'm sure someone could recommend a cottage builder who could help as well haha.

Dan Durston made a cuben fly for his T2. Check out his thread.
