"Does the handle not slide around? Should I not be concerned if the handle slips and ends up sitting in the pocket?"
The peaks of the tents are peak shaped, so the pole will naturally sit at the highest point. It is possible that in severe weather that the tent could be jostled enough to dislodge a pole (as with any trekking pole tent), so using the grommet provides a bit more security. But basically the pole shouldn't slide around if you have a tight pitch because it anywhere it might slide too would be lower.
"I quite like the Mustard coloured one in your picture @@dandurston will that be an option to buy?"
That's an older prototype built from a color the factory just happened to have on hand. So no there's no plans to offer that color for the foreseeable future. But down the road I would like to offer two color options with a steath one for folks that prefer that and then a brighter color. So plausibly this could be the brighter color but my wife doesn't like it, so probably not. I haven't put much thought into brighter colors, but we might be able to add one for the next production run ready in spring 2020.
Nice. It's interesting to see the pitch with pole handles up. I'm really looking forward to details on the 2 person DCF version.Managed another quick pitch today...

Watching the video reminded me of a question I've been pondering and wanted to put to the collective wisdom here: I once read that it's best for the longevity of zips to pack with zips closed. This was general advice, not specifically about outdoor gear. I've recently come across contradictory information. Does anybody have any more definitive information?
With the strain relief sleeve cut off, these should have the closest diameter and thickness to the eyelet I could find.Can you give a link to the grommet?
Thanks.With the strain relief sleeve cut off, these should have the closest diameter and thickness to the eyelet I could find.
