Some Good Cottage Gear Manufactures

After reading Andrews book, I have been doing some more gear research.

Here are some good site to checkout:

Zpacks - We know they are good for tarps, but I have just purchase their large cuben dry bag, cuben fiber rain Jacket (review coming) and Vargo tent pegs.

Suluk46 - Checkout their 85gram bug bivy. Cuben fiber bottom - With a full body mesh screen top.

Oookworks - A British cottage manufacturer who makes bug bivys for Trailstar (and other) tarps. Sean will also customise for you. Looks like a great option for those who new to customise a little - don't we all :-)

Mountain Laural Designs - They now have the Solo Trailstar. I have the two man, but I like the solo in cuben - dam I already have a Hexamid. 

Six Moons -Meteor Biv. I like the concept of having it 50/50 on top - mesh and fabric.You can also download a pattern for MYOG. My daughter has just finished a commercial sewing course - hope for cut price gear yet! 

CAMP - Their G Comp gloves look very tempting. I love the idea of the wind stopper "flip-over".
