    Default DCF Comaprisons

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jS6IQm0eyJY

    Here's me blabbering for 25 minutes about different DCF weights. Might be worthwhile for some folks interested in DCF gear. Goes to show you how well it holds up to lots of use.

    Enjoy.. this is the start of my fame on youtube.

    Thats just a zpacks food bag.

    I'm a big fan of that pod for many reasons and i think its earned a place it my kit forever. It rides on top of my pack liner and contains my hygiene kit, fak, guide books, maps, electronics, etc. Good place to keep my gloves and hat. And it waterproofs everything again. For 1 ounce, i really like it. Fits all my packs well.

    I buy alot of expensive backpacking gear---Hilleberg tents, McHale pack, WM bag---but I have yet to fall into the Cuben fiber Wishing Well. Too old school I guess.

    I get it for a tarp, where there's an assumption of some level of experience and all sorts of ability to flexibly customize the deployment, plus an existing prioritization of weight. It honestly makes very little sense to my feeble brain for a complete floored tent. Diminishing returns and all that. For a pack, the weight savings really don't make any sense to me at all. The weight savings vs Dyneema or other rugged materials that are significantly less expensive to use is remarkably small (1.3 ounces for the pack I typically use).

    Hybrid cuben backpacks are very durable, light, and highly water resistant.

    They are just expensive.

    Wouldn't those same attributes apply to Dyneema X (minus an ounce or so) but at a much lower price point?
