VERY THIN MATERIAL – Our largest concern with The Two (particularly the usual mannequin) is the skinny materials. The ground and physique are made with 10 denier Silnylon, which is thinner than many different ultralight tents. By comparability, the favored Six Moon Designs Lunar Duo and Tarptent Stratospire 2 each have a 30 denier ground. That skinny materials makes The Two much less sturdy than others, however extra irritating to us is how saggy it will get when moist. The thinner Silnylon is, the extra it’s going to stretch when uncovered to moisture. Seeing as we do a whole lot of adventuring in our wet residence state of Oregon, this was a selected challenge for us.
The DCF Two solves the sag challenge, since dyneema doesn’t soak up moisture or stretch. And we predict this function alone makes it well worth the improve to the DCF model should you usually backpack in moist situations. However this model comes with an excellent thinner 7 denier Silnylon ground, which suggests chances are you’ll want so as to add a groundsheet or you may find yourself with a worn out ground and a wonderfully superb tent physique after a number of seasons of use.
