    Thank you. I was one of those orders. I have a trip planned a couple weeks from now (leaving Fri 4/28), so I was hoping to have it by then.

    I got the shipping email last night, thank you.

    Edit: received today, well done. I guess I probably didn't need to pay extra for priority shipping. I'll set it up this weekend (practice before my trip). Initial impressions are that it's very well made and thoughtfully designed. Everything in the included carrying bag is 13.6 lbs on my bathroom scale. Looking forward to trying this out.

    Eventually I値l swap out the orange amsteel for darker colors.

    As for the few inches of aluminum at the bottom, that could easily be covered up with a little moss, leaves, dirt, any natural foliage really.

    Hi everyone. Just wanted to give an update and let you all know if you are interested in getting a set of these made to complete your Tensa stand gear I have a listing for a set of the marpat camo ones similar to the picture but can also make them out of a material and color of your choosing(price will vary with the more exotical materials).

    Pole sleeves
    I got my marpat cammo pole skins for my Tensa 4 in the mail today. Chris at Two Speed did a nice job and was great to work with for my special request. Taking them out for a stealth test this weekend.
    Thanks for starting this conversation a while back, ChinoUMC. Really appreciate the idea! And thanks to Dublinlin for sharing diy ideas too, and others who shared their ideas.
    The Tensa 4 has so many options, and the sleeves fit well on the fully extended poles and I like the way they scrunch up on the solo. It adds a little more cammoflauge effect to the clean lines of the poles by blurring them even more. All in all, a great win. And they don稚 weigh much or take up much room. So glad I got them. I would definitely recommend. They even come with a small stuff sack in the same fabric with a very professional 鍍wo speeds hammocks label.

    You can get in touch with Chris on Etsy (Two Speed Hammocks) He won稚 brag about it but he has hammock camped the triple crown of long distance hiking; the Appalachian Trail, The Pacific Crest Trail and the Continental Divide Trail. He also makes hammocks and other hammock items. Just helping promote another cottage industrialist. You can find his store Here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TwoSpeedHammocks

    And thanks to Tensa outdoors for their awesome products!
    Here痴 a pic a black ridgeline and baseline would make it better, but I told Two Speed I would send him a pic so I set it up with what I could find.

    My Solo works great. I removed the interior part of the nested spacer so the locking pin makes more of a presence. The sections side easily except for the bottom section and the one that telescopes into it. Maybe some dirt/grime causes a little friction, but it feels clean to the touch and it does sound like metal-on-metal.

    Is there a recommended lubricant that isn't too messy?

    I recall people used WD-40 on their bike chains until they were told it just attracts dust/dirt and alternatives were suggested.

    So I figured I'd ask before spraying it with CorrosionX or some silicon product.
    In order to see what few have seen, you must go where few have gone. And DO what few have done.

    I have not tried this, but I use wax on my bicycle chains. Dry to the touch, doesn't hold any dirt.
    Melt the wax (if you're going to heat with a flame, use a double boiler - the vapour is flammable). Let it drip dry while hot - you won't see a visible wax deposit, it will be quite thin.

    A slow cooker is great for melting wax. But again, I don't know for this application. I haven't tried it yet.

    @cougarmeat, mine has that same issue w/ the last two bottom sections when collapsing. I've wondered if I needed to file down the edge some but I'm not sure yet what is actually causing it. I haven't pulled any spacers and I'm not sure mine has them or if I got it before they were being used.
    Anyway, about the wax. When I was in England visiting I learned to rub a candle stub on the bow saw blade for lube, and I do use a dry wax chain lube on my bike chain. That's kinda the norm out here. So my point is that most bike shops will carry a dry wax lube that is already in liquid form and easy to apply, it drys after air exposure. Clean Ride is a good one and the one I use most but Squirt is one that's thicker and might be better for this application. That is if you're not going w/ a double boiler and just dipping the whole end of the section in it.

    Re sticky sections, first check for clean, then straight by rolling the involved segments on a flat surface and looking for any gaps. You can then GENTLY apply pressure to high spots to micro-bend back straight. A waxy lube can also help. Boeshield T-9, yes used in the bike industry from which I hail, is a go-to. A little goes a long way. Silicone probably also fine, maybe even better.
