    Thumbs up Thanks and Thumbs Up

    A big thanks again to Dutch. Earlier this year I started using his cuben fiber pack cover which totally rocks. Since then I've also re-made my continuous ridge-line using one of his Flyz and Dutch hooks. When I got the dutch hooks I realized that they were also the solution to a problem with my hiking pole tarp pole mod - now I have a couple more of his hooks for connecting my poles to the tarp ends - very sweet and elegant. Lately I've found myself looking for an excuse to get a couple of his biners but I haven't come up with one - yet.

    I can't wait to see what cool hardware he comes up with next.

    Love the Dutch-biners on my hammock suspension as an absolute water break.

    I am ashamed to say I still do not own any shiny Dutchwares, but I know this will change in the new year. I have been dreaming about shiny Dutchware along with all the other Christmas wishes... Please don't be too hard on me.

    Sarge, would you elaborate how you're using these? And I'm +1 on the magnificence of Dutchware. It's only drawback tends to be the items are so small I'm paranoid of losing them....

    +1. I also add a short piece of cotton string to the biner as an added water diverter.

    I just uploaded a video explaining how I use the Dutchware. The first half is probably old hat to you guys, the second half shows how I use Dutchware in my pole mod.
