    How about testing the current material? I’m sure MLD would love to have you test the material they are using to make their current tents.

    Matthew,

    If you or any other forum member mails me a minimum 1′ square sample of the MLD 2016 Pro Silnylon, I will do an aged HH curve test for it and publish the results to this forum thread. The person with sample access can get my mailing address by using the forum email. I won’t mention the sample donor in the report unless they say it is OK to do so.

    Interesting thread. I’m looking forward to the 2016 results.

    I can’t say I’ve ever noticed “misting” with silnylon but all my silnylon use has been with double wall shelters where it might be harder to detect.

    Ron just posted a testing video to the MLD Facebook group (Note: you may need to be a member of the group to view the link/video)

    I used to get a notice sent to my regular email address when a forum post was sent to me. After Matthews forum post notice, that he sent a PM to me, I investigated the problem.

    In order to find his message, by trial and error, I had to proactively click “My BPL”, “Forum Profile”, “Messages”, and then find his message. Is this how everyone else on the forum has to find out that someone sent them a message or is a notification sent to you proactively?

    I’ve always had an email notification (which also includes the text of the message).

    Richard, I still receive the occasional PM from BPL. You might need to change your email address and/or allow it through your firewall/spam filters.

    I stopped receiving PM notices via email recently as well.

    I hope you are all sitting down… I think this website is broken!

    Matthew,

    Please follow the manual procedure, I mentioned above,  to look for a BPL forum email I sent you and let me know if you can view it.

    Monkey,

    You said in part, “Shouldn’t the title of this thread be changed now that this point has been clarified? ”

    If you tell me how to change the title of this thread, I will do it.

    Ron’s test on Facebook indicates a PSI of at least 12, 3 x what the 2015 fabric was.  What does that convert to in mm?  When the water finally came through, it came through as a tiny drop at one specific point.  Should we have had it break through all over the fabric with corresponding ‘misting?’

    I didn’t point it out on Ron’s Facebook post, but does he test aged HH? TBH, raw HH is pretty darn meaningless to anyone if it ages enough after a few uses or so to be below ~1500mm.
