I have been reading about skins and tubes a lot lately and I have a couple questions from those that use them.
- Have you noticed any additional space requirements because they don't fold or pack as well?
- Have you tried using other ways of wrapping up your gear? (ie... Shock cord around the tarps.)
- Has anyone tried using S biners on the corners of their UQ to wrap up the hammock and TQ in a pre-setup package?
I ask these questions because I like the convenience of the snake skins, but it seemed to make the packing of the tarp more difficult to get in the pack where I wanted it. When I was thinking about the tubes for the hammock setup, I thought it would also make the pack size difficult to fit in the smaller packs. If you are not noticing the larger pack space, what are you doing to make it conform to the pack once it is in the skins or tube?
Thanks for the help...
