Custom inner

So after getting my s/h Cuben Duomid and then a cheap Alliexpress inner,seperate post on here,i wondered about making an inner that suited my needs more..so once i had some figures in my head i decided to make a template/model that i could use to try and see how the fit would be in my Duomid,but with an eye to maybe being able to use it under the Trailstar too..





That done i exchanged a few emails with Sean about sizes and materials and costs ...this is the result 




The fit was exactly as i wanted it and as always Seans stunning attention to detail, no wonky Bearpaw sew lines here



Cuben used was .75 Oz    and 1.25 for the floor














I asked for just 2 zips but Sean said a T zip would work better,i also asked for a 6" tub floor 


I also bought a s/h porch tub off Lee Taylor this is also an older piece made by Sean



I may shorten it yet but need to try it with Trailstar first,,if it fits as i hope under Trailstar ill add those pics tomorrow













One of Pauls lovely peg bags in shot too




It is straight its just the GO-Pro thats made it look that way











Best too last,came in at under what Sean thought...very happy 




From the start the inner was designed for my Duomid,but i couldnt forget my true Love..so altered sizing so that it might work under the Trailstar too
At a pitch hieght of 52" it fit well








As the hieght is still smaller than the Duomid pitch hieght i had to use a loop of bungy cord too pull together the excess material,worked well 



Here it is with the Wooftub






And here with a bit off Cuben floor that i bought off Lee
 


Can be a bit of wasted space behind,i suppose i cud add a zip 



So this next bits a bit extra ive added to original write up,i used a brief spell in dry weather to see if i could get the fit better.I did this with pole at 48 "









As you can see still a little wasted space behind so i tried running the inner alongside one side of the Trailstar,it fit well 
 

















So thats it may see you on the hill sometime....safe travels Peter and Oscar the mountain dog
