      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Naked women, tents and 195mph winds?

Recommended Posts

actually, IIRC the reason they had to go to the third-party fabric mfr. is because PTFE materials with the wicking inner layer that were/are the standard material for single wall tents and bivy sacks don't meet US flammability standards so gore stopped selling the material to US tent makers. for a while, i remember, you could still get gore tex tents from integral designs because they were in canada and didn't have the same issues. the rest of your story matches my memory, that todd-tex emerged as a bibler re-branding of third-party PTFE fabric made after the original patent ran out.
