How To: Make a Cuben Fiber 2-Man Tent @~1kg

OK, so I've been working on this tent project for the last month, and It's finally finished, It would have been pages and pages here on the forum, so I've PDF'd it.
It was an expensive task, and took some care but IT'S AWESOME!!  Cheesy Cheesy

Making a Cuben Fiber Tent <--Click Link or Right Click > Save Target As.
Warning! It's picture heavy & 10mb .... be patient

Looks like this:




Cheers

edit: I have no idea how Zpacks sells theirs for as little as they do, they mustn't be making much on manufacture, or they can make them really quickly! If you're after a tent, I'd buys Joes (Zpacks) Duplex. You could possibly save some money making your own tarp, but there's a LOT of work in the tent options. I built my own purely because I love projects and challenging my skills.

Cheers Fellas.
It was a little more work than I was looking for. I was kinda hoping I could rope my sister into sewing it for me (she can sew), but she brought her machine around, took one look at it, guessed I had about 16 hours of sewing ahead of me, gave me a half hour lesson on how to sew......and ran for the hills !!  Grin

Bump
(subsequent to the article in the latest NZHunter Mag. issue 58 . . . just to make it easier for others to find if they want a great step-by-step on how to make a cuben tent . . . and there's heaps of information here that'll set you right for making a cuben tarp also, which is an easier project.)

Big ups to you Kersh  Smiley
