"Green Cuben Patrol Shelter: A long distance hikers Best friend! I used my patrol shelter most nights on the A.T. There is absolutely no wear visible and it never leaked a drop. The interesting thing about Cuben is that there is very little to no condensation. If anyone is aksing themselves if Cuben is worth it.. IT TOTALLY IS! Advantages: No Stretch, Lightest weight, Stronger than steel, Absorbs NO water, Translucent (can actually see stars through it), quieter than silnylon or spinnaker ; though probably more due to the excellant design of the Patrol Shelter."

• No zippers, flaps, latchs, clips, snaps, velcro or any moving parts.
• Closed rear foot triangle provides great protection and allows a shorter length tarp with even more coverage overhang at head end.
• Fast Set Up: Stake out rear corners, set rear pole, set front pole, stake out front corners!
• All Tieouts include Line Tensioners
• Interior ridgeline gear hang loops for tying up bivy hoods, bug nets, etc.
• Beak has a reinforced interior apex for using a pole against the inside plus an exterior tieout on the apex. Longer non adjustable pole users can place the pole at the edge of the beak, tie a line from the exterior apex to the pole and stake that out and then uses a short bungee line to tie clip the beak mid height to the pole.
• Front can be pitched low and wide and the beak will partially close off the front end for high wind. Pitch the front high for fair weather and max ventilation.


Guyline: 3mm for the LineTensioners.

How to a Seam Seal an MLD Pro Silnylon Shelter

(Cuben Fiber Shelters do not need seam sealing.)

1: Pitch and inspect your shelter for any issues. Once it is seam sealed it is non returnable except for significant defects.

2: Use the supplied SilNet and only the SilNet. (If you want to dilute it or use some other silicone sealant it should work OK and is common (research this yourself online) results may vary.

3: Pitch the shelter tightly. Temps should be above 60 F and humidity below 80%. You may do this indoors. You may also do one seam at a time indoors if the seem is stretched slightly. Pinning one seam from each end on the floor between two heavy objects works OK.

4: We use the SilNet straight from the tube. Do not make a big hole in the sealer tube - start small so you can control flow. Multiple small application is a lot better than one big smear.

5: Main Seams: Place a small bead on the seam along the stitching. Work on a 3’- 4’ section at a time. Use a finger to press the sealer into the stitching and the small valley at the edge of the seam where it is rolled under.


NOTE: You only need to seal the OUTSIDE of the shelter ONLY. You do not need to seal the bottom perimeter roller edge stitching. It is OK to add a small bead on the leading edge of the triangle tieouts reinforcement stitching, but it is not required.

IMPORTANT: Do no go back and forth over the wet seam too much - after a minute or three it will get gummy and look bad. Better to wait 8 hrs and then OK to add some over any area you missed.
