TIP: The online Bushwalk Inventory System can help bushwalkers with a variety of bushwalk planning tasks, including: Manage which items they take bushwalking so that they do not forget anything they might need, plan meals for their walks, and automatically compile food/fuel shopping lists (lists of consumables) required to make and cook the meals for each walk. It is particularly useful for planning for groups who share food or other items, but is also useful for individual walkers.

Tent Polyester Vs 20d Nylon

Thinking about purchasing the Nature Hike Cloud 2 but I see it comes in 210 Polyester or 20 D Nylon just wondering which would be best ? Not trying to save weight prefer waterproofness and longevity .

Cheers

210 should be more waterproof/durable. Just be aware these tents don't work for taller people.

Also depends on your bushwalking style. If you're prepared to bunker down for the day, get the 210. If you're going to walk regardless... go the lighter option and walk with a synthetic rather than Down quilt/bag
