    I am away in just under three weeks and will finally get to try my Duomid and Trailstar, I have a tub Sean made me that will work in either, but as in the Lake District I think it's best I have an inner to keep the midges out. I have the MLD solo pyramid innernet does anyone know if that would fit into the TS just for a night so I can get to try it?

    Can't pitch at home right now as back garden is all dug up.

    Thanks

    I can't see why not, it'll be baggy but it'll "fit"

    Thanks @Shewie being baggy is fine, just gives me a chance to start seeing which I prefer out of these two shelters :thumbsup:

    You need both really ! A short 6-8 inch length of cord used around the top,say 3 inch down will help you pull in any slack areas too .i have mine in a loop with a cord lock on but you could simply just put it around and pull it tight and fasten with a loose ish knott

    Heres how it looks, albeit a Oookwork single nest made for a Duomid.

    Works okay, though i dont consider it a long term solution if the TS was the only shelter i had. You can gather it tighter around the top which would make things more taut, but i didnt bring anything with me to do it when i took this pic

    I think im just going to keep both, too difficult to set them apart as they both have very particular uses

    I am more than happy to do that tbh, I have only slept out in the mountains in my Six Moons Design Lunar Duo Explorer, it's a fab shelter but want to try the two MLD shelters and see what works for me. If the same inner will do with shelters then thats a bonus.

    @liamarchie @Munro277 Can I please ask another related question, can you in a nutshell describe when you would take each?

    This first trip out in the Lake District, I will be using these to camp up in the mountains for a night or two.

    Thanks

    If winds up and know its going to be possible for bad weather i'd take the TS.
    If its likely to snow the Duomid.

    If its nice weather i'd take either.

    For longer trips i'd probably take the Duomid though as its more versatile in where it can be pitched with a smaller footprint, and the height of it is a bit more comfortable for me. The TS can be quite low and a back ache when inside

    I have similar thoughts to @liamarchie although the DM has shown itself to be equally storm worthy in the last couple of years. I haven't used my TS since the Lakes meet last year but I'll always hang onto it, it is a limpet and a nice option to have.
