    Cuben fiber vs noseeum ridge line organizer

    I know it's not a big deal in the grand scheme of things but was thinking of getting An organizer. Is one prefered over the other?

    i use the mesh ones. i sometimes put things in that are damp. i don't think they would dry in cuben.

    Good question. I'm not sure there is a correct answer to this question. It might be a little easier to see whats in the mesh one but other than that I'm not sure there is much difference. I can say that I have a mesh one and don't have any complaints about it.

    I'm sure the mesh is cheaper too but I know that I am in love with anything cuben now so it's a crap shoot really

    I'm interested to see what others have to say about this.

    I haven't had one made of cuben ... but can't think of a reason I'd like one over mesh myself. I have 2QZQ's and it's just about perfect for me. I've made a couple DIY's over the years but their's is "mo'betta"

    In winter a waterproof ridgeline organizer works better because it will keep your breath moisture from condensing on the items stored overhead.

    yes, the one at Luke's Ultralight is the one that made me question if I should use mesh.
    I figure it may be easier to find things in the mesh, but cuben may hold up better...
    wv...Good point about the condensation
