In the video I stated that "it depends" regarding what the best way is
(mind you , you need to be able to decipher my accent and keep in mind that I make the dialog up as I go along...)
Anyway, for stuff that is very soft/playable, say a puffy jacket or a sleeping bag, stuffing is faster and you are not going to save any space by folding/rolling.
This can change if using a sleeping bag with a much thicker than normal fabric.
For tents or shelters again it depends on the fabric and of course as I point out in the video how the tent is made.
Most Tarptents have a supported end with built in struts , so you have to fold and roll but for example with the Contrail , there is absolutely no way that you could remove the struts stuff the shelter in the provided sack with struts and stakes.
My "guess" is that it becomes even more obvious with Cuben shelters.
Just one small example :
that is a TiGoat Ptarmigan bivvy.
If you look carefully you can see that the perishing rubber band is not really compressing the bivvy.
Now I dare anyone that has that bivvy to get it that small by stuffing it.
Even once inside that pack and compressed it will take more space
Now multiply that by several times for a tent and it starts to make a difference.
Folding, I think, creates repetitive stress points on the tent fabric
It is virtualy impossible to fold a silnylon or Epic tent the exact same way twice.
I have tried several times to do a "factory" re-pack for a Tarptent but failed...
Take a look at the Contrail video , that should answer your question. (click on the blue Contrail word)
If I were looking for a solo TT shelter to use in areas where rain is common and particularly if planning to spend an afternoon or two inside, I would look at the Strato Spire 1 or if weight/size is more important, the Notch.
I would not bother (I have the SS2 and the Notch) but if worried about packing up in the rain , you can separate the inner from the fly, pack that up and then get out take down the fly and put that inside the front pocket or across the top of the backpack.
