    Now you just need a cuben Packa and you'll be set.

    Yes the cuben lined phoenix does look inticing. I'm sticking with my Warbonnet quilts for now though.

    I like cuben - but not the spirit of this thread. I will say the zpacks new dry sacks are amazing though.

    I've got a cuben OES MacCat Deluxe that I still use and love. Some of the other cuben tarps now being made are very cool. I think it's great to see the Cuben material getting more widespread use, especially if that will perhaps bring the price down (hopefully).

    Sorry for any bad spiriting? I'm just wonderin what you guys were using in the cuben realm.
    For instance, I wasn't aware of the cuben packa until now. Just seein what areas cuben has infiltrated and offering my gear experiences to others.
