For those who are interested here are some impressions of the OutDoor Show in FriedrichshafenJul 13, 2013 at 8:23 am #2005495
Thanks, some interesting stuff. Would love to hear comments from packrafters about Klymit's packraft.

Here are the links for day 3 and 4
detailed articles at the weekend when I found some free minutes.
I think the high heel VFF are only promotion prototypesJul 15, 2013 at 11:06 am #2006284
That's a nice looking tent but $2000 in Cuben?Jul 15, 2013 at 11:55 am #2006299
Does that include shipping?Jul 15, 2013 at 11:59 am #2006302
Dunno. My google-fu sucks but I don't believe they are advertising it on their website yet.
I'm quoting the price from here:Jul 15, 2013 at 12:05 pm #2006308
I was just kidding. I was going to say, "I wonder if it comes with a free footprint."
It strikes me as very strange that mainstream gear companies (including Sierra Designs) can come out with $2000 cuben tents but MLD and Zpacks offer cuben shelters at a fraction of that price.Jul 15, 2013 at 12:12 pm #2006312
I had a sense that you were kidding but I was preemptively playing my 'get out of jail free' card in case the actual price will be less than 2k when it's released this fall.

Conversely, I'm surprised that none of the cottage industry folks aren't selling a free standing single wall shelter like this. Seems like there'd be a healthy market for it.Jul 15, 2013 at 2:43 pm #2006363

On Day 4, you've got a photo from Eureka of four packs hanging on a white wall. The one on the left looks like an Ion with added pockets (unless the black material at the bottom is just a single layer of different fabric). The looks like a cool little daypack if so.
The other packs look very similar to GoLite Jams with added features. Does Eureka own GoLite? Or is that a GoLite display?Jul 16, 2013 at 4:59 am #2006577
Yeah you are right. The packs look like the Golite range und even the Eureka WikiUL looks like the SL3. I only know that the german distributor from golite works now for eurekaJul 16, 2013 at 5:29 pm #2006865
