Gossamer Gear The Two & The DCF Two Tent Evaluation — 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 can stretch when uncovered to moisture. Seeing as we do a number of adventuring in our wet house state of Oregon, this was a specific situation for us. 

The DCF Two solves the sag situation, since dyneema doesn’t soak up moisture or stretch. And we expect this characteristic alone makes it well worth the improve to the DCF model if you happen to typically backpack in moist circumstances. However this model comes with a fair thinner 7 denier Silnylon flooring, which implies you could want so as to add a groundsheet or you would find yourself with a worn out flooring and a superbly advantageous tent physique after a couple of seasons of use.
