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 should stretch when uncovered to moisture. Seeing as we do a variety of adventuring in our wet dwelling state of Oregon, this was a selected situation for us.
The DCF Two solves the sag situation, since dyneema doesn’t take in moisture or stretch. And we expect this characteristic alone makes it definitely worth the improve to the DCF model when you usually backpack in moist circumstances. 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 would find yourself with a worn out ground and a wonderfully positive tent physique after a couple of seasons of use.
