Gossamer Gear The Two & The DCF Two Tent Review — CleverHiker


VERY THIN MATERIAL – Our greatest concern with The Two (particularly the usual mannequin) is the skinny materials. The ground and physique are made with 10 denier Silnylon, which is thinner than many different ultralight tents. By comparability, the favored Six Moon Designs Lunar Duo and Tarptent Stratospire 2 each have a 30 denier flooring. That skinny materials makes The Two much less sturdy than others, however extra irritating to us is how saggy it will get when moist. The thinner Silnylon is, the extra it’ll stretch when uncovered to moisture. Seeing as we do plenty of adventuring in our wet dwelling state of Oregon, this was a selected difficulty for us. 

The DCF Two solves the sag difficulty, since dyneema doesn’t soak up moisture stretch. And we predict this characteristic alone makes it well worth the improve to the DCF model in case you typically backpack in moist circumstances. However this model comes with an excellent thinner 7 denier Silnylon flooring, which implies it’s possible you’ll want so as to add a groundsheet you can find yourself with a worn out flooring and a wonderfully nice tent physique after a number of seasons of use.
