    I lost the last head net on last outing somewhere amongst the peat hags of the Geldie/ Feshie watershed so knocked up another from 27g/m2 no-see-um black mesh, 13g; 80cm * 50cm panel simply folded over & stitched, some shaping to get a 'good' fit over the BB cap & a 1.5mm shock cord in the hem.........an hour well spent given the billions of midge out & about at the moment.

    i like the style nod to soap on a rope.

    it’s time to admit that my stunning myog rucksack that i made last year broke on day 3, my coffee filter mesh wasn’t fine enough so that didn’t work either AND even the cam snaps that I put on my echo hoody, which worked fine when I did them, didn’t work when I actually wanted to use them a few days later. Cam snaps not working?! How could I mess that up? I Also used the dust sheet quilt protector that I made last year, cut down to just footbox length, and had a soggy footbox by morning. All very well intentioned but falling far short of being any use.

    Storage for a cone: 600ml Smartwater bottle with cap made from 330ml drinks can. Very neat fit

    I've made a few similar cone storage containers.
    I mark the bigger half with volumes (mls) so easy to measure quantities of liquids.

    Don't get me started on projects that didn't quite work - or not at all... :( Perhaps wisely I never attempted a backpack or shelter but stuck with nonessentials.

    Big test today for my finally completed cu + cf mat bonded slingback chair at half the weight of the original and double use on top or below airmat.

    I'd call that field testing r&d Clare. You've found the weaknesses so you now have information to improve the designs. None of this stuff is just right first time in my experience.

    This seems to working well.enough - a little more comfy and half the weight (73gr) of the original slingshot seat. Also a little shorter and the seat section is about 2" wider. Doubles above or below airmat and only used left over / cut off pieces apart from glue and tape.
