      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!

FS: HMG Ultamid 2, perimeter netting and extras

Recommended Posts

I have a Hyperlite Mountain Gear Ultamid 2 in excellent condition, used 2 nights on the trail. My young son now wants to come with us on more trips so I'm going to be using a larger Mid this season.


This Mid has perimeter bug netting added by HMG. They did an excellent job...instead of stitching the netting to the very bottom of the perimeter (like I've seen some companies do), they bonded a small strip of cuben about 2 inches above the perimeter and then folded it inward, and then stitched the netting to that, so there is no chance of rain to catch on the netting and go inwards. If you don't want the netting, you can easily cut it off. I was actually about to do a mod where I was going to cut off the netting, and add Zpacks cuben Velcro tape strips to Velcro the netting to the strip of cuben along the perimeter, but I'll probably do that on the larger mid I purchase. But if you did, it would be as easy as sticking tape to the mid, no sewing required, and would give you the ability to remove the netting when not needed (like winter).


I also have two carbon fiber trekking pole extenders that you can use to create an inverted V if you do not want a pole in the center of the mid. Quite comfortable.


And, if you don't know already, the Ultamid 2 is quite a bit more comfortable than the Duomid, since it is wider and has the door on the shorter side, so each sleeper has access to the door without having to climb over the other occupant.


The Ultamid 2 retails for $675 + $50 perimeter netting + $28 cuben fiber pole extenders + $15 shipping = $768. I would like $615


If you have any questions, just let me know via PM.
