    I seem to almost look forward to the Skittles more than than the gear I order from them. :laugh:

    Zpacks Hexamid Pocket Tarp w/ Doors

    Just took plunge on a new Hexamid. Sold this few years ago as needed funds to pay some bills. I'm in better position than was back then and decided to re-buy the Hexamid and should arrive back end of Summer if the lead times are accurate. This was my all time favourite shelter for weight, pack-ability, setup and modular approach so looking forward to getting back out in it. Will be using Lanshan 1 Pro in mean time when I finally get back out next month.

    I really like the idea of Hexamid tarps but DCF is way out of my price range. :)

    I never ordered from them until this week and have been scratching my head about the skittles for days. All makes sense now!

    The 3F UL Gear Lanshan 1/Pro 1 are a good cheaper Sil version of the Hexamids :)

    I'll probably be selling mine once the Hexamid arrives.

    Lanshans are good, think I'm going to be sticking with my Gatewood Cape though. :)

    I'll be interested to hear what you think of the Pyraomm vs other similar sized mids eg Khufu and Duomid.

    @Daniel I like the way the Dirigo 2 end panel has been split to create the extra volume using the panel pull-out. Smart design. What does the ridge pole look like? Does it have rigid end joints for the pole ends to lock into?

    no its a carbon bar wrapped in foam, when I pitched it the bar was protruding through to the pole cups on both side and I immediately thought its damaged they worn through but no apparently its how it's ment to be. hmg could have made a better job of it 20210512_173806.jpg 20210512_174316.jpg

    @Daniel Thanks for the photos but I'm none the wiser. Do the ridge bar ends just butt up against the pole handles when it's pitched then?

    Daniel Ultralighter

    yes carbon strut rests on pole handles

    OMM Halo Trousers XL £65, delivered, from Sportsshoes with Trek-lite discount. 90g size XL

    I'd say they are on the athletic side of XL and if I was trying them on in a shop I'd have gone for the size up (If they made one). I am particularly fat at the moment though :banghead:

    Is the size as expected Hel?

    I've tried these on over a pair of long trousers, fit well on the legs, a touch snug on the bum, but then again, I could do with shedding a pound or two!! I'm 5'4" and normally UK ladies 12. For summer hikes I'll be wearing shorts and hopefully a bit more svelte, so they should be a good fit.
