Solo Plus Hexamid - beak? on 08/17/2013 10:10:35 MDT Print View

Nice video Chad,

Just wondering as I can't quite see, did you get the extended beak?

Yes, he does have the extended beak he just has it rolled back out of the way, here is his video of just setting up the tarp.

I had think about this last night and really like the double doors and and space of my Ss1, especially around the head and feet area due to the pitch lok corners, if only Henry started using Cuben :-)

Hexamid v SS1 on 08/17/2013 12:47:07 MDT Print View

A Hexamid Long has a comparable arrangement to raise the height of the sides.

The SS1 looks a tremendous shelter but weighs nearly 13oz over your spec and a pound over a Hexamid!

For two doors and a little bit of a weight reduction compared to a SS1, how about a Notch.

Hi Jim,

Thats good to know about the Hexamid.

The Notch could be a contender also, must give it a look.

Cheers,
