quote Cedarboy: "Do they include the 15 ft pole to place the hooks?"
You use your tent poles before you set up your tent. Come to think of it not sure if the tent I'm getting would work. And you wouldn't need a fifteen ft pole if you have a 6 or 7 ft reach. On my timberline I could put all the poles together.
We went through this a while ago. I made my own set and experimented with my tent poles in the backyard. They come with their own unique set of hassles. I wouldn't say they solve all the problems of hanging.
quote bojibob: "The Owner sent me a pair for free to test. I tried using them once and it didn't work out for many reasons, it was quite comical. The biggest was the weight of the food pack. It was VERY heavy!
I think if you were using a food pack in the sub 50lb range you would be OK.
If you want them Ben they are yours. I'm not sure if they are here or in my storage in South Dakota. I will look and let you know."
I see the load capacity is only 25#. I only hang some stuff on longer trips as I only have so much room in the Vaults. Just wondering if anyone tried them and actually liked them.
quote KarlBAndersen1: "I'll bet it could be "fun" getting those off on a windy day!" I didn't use the tent poles to get them down. I tied a separate line thru the small "ring" on the top and used that to pull them down. It's not a bad system.....you just can't hang much weight and you still gotta goof around and find the right place, right limb...etc. I'm finding it easier to cable my blue barrel to a tree someplace.
Looks like one more thing to fall down and hit you in the face. Far away from a dr.
Neat idea and prolly good for short trips with a light food ruck. But the average person. Hanging toothpaste, personal hygeine items, everything that smells like fish. Along with your food. Prolly has more then 25lbs. being hoisted up.
I like to keep my food in my buddies tent. Much easier that way ;]
