When BackPackin' go GreenPackin'

Dartmoor gear feedback

Leave a comment


As with all my trips, this is a short feedback post on some of the gear I used. I’m going to do a separate post on my Gossamer Gear Mariposa rucksack as I’ve used it for over a year now and it deserves a longer review.

MLD Cuben Duomid OookWorks nest:

This was the first time that my cuben Duomid has been subject to heavy rain since I sealed all the stitching around the vent. I’m pleased to say that there were no leaks. However, I have spotted one design flaw. In theory, the vent can be closed by removing the plastic stiffener and sealed with velcro. Unfortunately the velcro on the underside of the hood and the main body of the tent don’t fully match. So, I closed it with a peg. I’m going to do a little mod to cure this inadequacy.
