    Very similar to the MLD Duomid dimensions as well. Quite like the small extension on the inner.

    Anyone found pics 4,5 and 6 yet?

    Anyone have a view on 15d Silnylon fly's? I think Tarptent use 30d.

    Wow. Didn't know that. I'm visualising that as like a mesh onto which the proofing (sil/PU) binds?

    Yeah, you can just buy the outer tent.
    But now just 20D color RED in stock, the color gray need to wait 1 months, will arrive on about 15 May.
    The weight of 20D red is about 490 grams, the 15D gray is about 480 grams.

    Be interested to see what you think.

    The red could be a useful alternative to a bothy bag for winter checkpointing.

    Added some more details and links to my original post

    It's worth looking on the ali express app as items are sometimes cheaper if you buy via the app
