Ive opted to take a tent with me on the Overland Track, Evan is building me a custom made Mid shelter out of Cuben Fiber for use on the Overland and the Larapinta Trail. If you take a look at my post on Cuben Fiber Shelter topic on the bushwalk.com forum, you will see my new shelter, its not yet complete, but the weight is only 275 grams.
Had to sort my posts out it went pear shaped... anyways
Man! that shelter looks the bees knees. And I love the shape, if Andrew Skurka can does what he does in 1 of those duomids u are gonna be rocking.
Don't forget that there are huts all the way on the overland track so u wouldn't hardly ever have to set up a shelter if u didn't want to.
Phillipsart what are your thoughts on the phoenix UQ?
