The new 2OookNest for the SL3

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.

  1. Real good job!
    What about the product testing in Wales?
    When this model will be commercialized?

    • Thank you. The testing went very well – the only thing I’ve changed is the tieouts for the groundsheet, making setting up faster and simpler.
      It’s available to order now.

  2. I’ve been discussing the 2OookNest with a couple of friends. While I find it great, a friend of mine commented that it doesn’t really seem usable for people who are over aprox. 180 cms tall. At least not if you do not want to have the inner tent hanging in your face while sleeping… Do you have any experience with that? Do you agree with my friends perception?

    • I suppose it depends how much over 180cm :) There is a risk with all the pyramid style shelters because of the angle of the sides, but there is the same length in this one as there is in the Golite nest and it pitches nice and tight with minimal sag.

      • Thanks a lot for the quick reply. I actually calculated it with an assumed height of 135 cms of the inner tent and (theoretically!) for somebody who’s 181 cms tall there would be 31 cms of head-/footspace, leaving 26 cms on both sides “unused”.

        So I guess it really depends on what kind of pad and sleepingbag you use…
