Sometimes I get unusual requests for custom work, and this was more unusual than most.
An Akto tub with an 8″ high silnylon extension to deter slithering slimies, giving a total tub height of 12″
Corner struts keep everything tight and a zipped flap makes for easy access.
Finally, the first 2OookNest is done. This one will be off to Wales with us this weekend for a bit of product testing. The pictures are pretty self explanatory I think, but it’s basically a two person inner for the Golite SL3 which allows for a decent porch space. It pitches and drops under the outer too, which should make for a more pleasant experience in shite weather.
This particularly one has the heavier 70D PU nylon floor and weighs 730g.
Cost will be around £185 using a 70D PU or 30D silnylon floor and as with all the nests will be available in any combination of mesh and ripstop that takes your fancy.
Hybrid cuben/ripstop/mesh OookNest for the MLD Duomid.
The goal was a full size Duomid OookNest with no compromises for under 300g. By no compromises I mean no reduction in size, no bonkers 0.1oz cuben groundsheet, a full T-zip, storage pockets…
I failed miserably. It’s 315g.
Check out the cuben/mesh pockets - bonded to the back wall.
Cuben fibre Oooktub for the Trailstar. Same footprint as the OookStar, 90mm bathtub, corner struts -125g
This one has a different shape to the standard and a smaller footprint. Using a 60cm high ripstop wall and a 30D silnylon floor it weighs 330g. Packed size is tiny.
I’m thinking of offering this as a standard item if there is interest in it. An all mesh version would be lighter still and nice for summer bug protection.
It has the working title of the BartStar* after the customer who came up with the layout idea.
Custom inner for a Hilleberg Unna. Just over half the size of the original inner, giving a good sized porch area 1.75oz cuben floor. Total weight 330g
