Thanks, some interesting stuff. Would love to hear comments from packrafters about Klymit's packraft.

But Five Fingers with heels? Really!? Cracked me up.

That's a nice looking tent but $2000 in Cuben?

Dunno. My google-fu sucks but I don't believe they are advertising it on their website yet.

I'm quoting the price from here:

I was just kidding. I was going to say, "I wonder if it comes with a free footprint."

It strikes me as very strange that mainstream gear companies (including Sierra Designs) can come out with $2000 cuben tents but MLD and Zpacks offer cuben shelters at a fraction of that price.

I had a sense that you were kidding but I was preemptively playing my 'get out of jail free' card in case the actual price will be less than 2k when it's released this fall.

"It strikes me as very strange that mainstream gear companies (including Sierra Designs) can come out with $2000 cuben tents but MLD and Zpacks offer cuben shelters at a fraction of that price."

Conversely, I'm surprised that none of the cottage industry folks aren't selling a free standing single wall shelter like this. Seems like there'd be a healthy market for it.

Eureka/GoLite Ion with pockets on Day 4 on 07/15/2013 15:43:50 MDT Print View

On Day 4, you've got a photo from Eureka of four packs hanging on a white wall. The one on the left looks like an Ion with added pockets (unless the black material at the bottom is just a single layer of different fabric). The looks like a cool little daypack if so.

The other packs look very similar to GoLite Jams with added features. Does Eureka own GoLite? Or is that a GoLite display?

Eureka Golite on 07/16/2013 05:59:00 MDT Print View

Yeah you are right. The packs look like the Golite range und even the Eureka WikiUL looks like the SL3. I only know that the german distributor from golite works now for eureka
