The duomid is a single wall silnylon or cuben fiber tarp in pyramid form. MLD also produce specifically solo shelters (the Solomid and Solomid XL), and larger multiple person shelters – the Supermid (4 person) and Mondomid (5 person), as well as an XL version of the Duomid itself. Orders are shipped freight and your address needs to be accessible to a full-size, 53′ tractor trailer. Love, love, love the railings. The mountain laurel branches are woven between the boards. Time will tell, but the Duomid is relatively simple in construction compared with something like the Scarp. I find this to be un-proven in my experience as the mid has held up well against some pretty damn heavy winds and rain. (this could be a four-to five person tent if your under 6′ perhaps?) Nice to find a kindred spirit focussing on the sweet spot between Ultralight and Comfort! Hi A typical section is a top and bottom cedar 2×4 with the mountain laurel branches woven in between. Only a 3oz and $5 difference. For normal sized people it might not seem an issue, but I’m 6’3”, sleep on a large NeoAir and am far too meaty for my own good!

Hi Hanz, Also the old one had mitten hooks on the attachment points of the Duomid itself, but the new one has them on the inner instead, with just some very small loops on the Duomid. I have a DYO-inner at 260g but it’s very frustrating looking at all the space and not be able to use it. A few years ago, I tried sleeping under a tarp resulting in my sleeping bag – and myself – getting infested with ticks. What do you think? The handrail sections are one side of boards, typically 2×4 as shown here, with the mountain laurel sticks attached. THanks for the excellent review! Also, if I wish to have that sleeping under the stars feeling without having to worry about the “Swedish” summer (rain); I can open up both flaps on the tarp and the entry way becomes a massive panorama view. If ordering from the MLDs website it could take up to 5-6 weeks before receiving as these items are made on demand. That could also be the case with other third party inners that used to match up well with the older version. Setup normally doesn’t take more than 2-3 minutes and teardown just as fast. I use this in combination with a Zpacks rainponcho/groundsheet, so I save weight on both rain gear and tent weight. You provide and install the additional 2×4 boards on the other side and the top cap 2×6 on site after installing the sections. You provide additional 2x4s to sandwich the ends of the sticks, top and bottom. Nice to see another DuoMid user in the Stockholm area! This however can be shortened greatly by ordering in offseason months. Thanks for a very good and rather funny rewiev. If you like my writing or my site don't be afraid to follow me, like or share my posts here on the site. I have tried the A-frame since i would like more room but I haven´t made it work very well so far. Post was not sent - check your email addresses! You provide your actual post-to-post measurements. The rectangular footprint measures 104 x 60 inches, with a variable peak height of around 56 inches. There’s less to go wrong. MLD notes that Skurka used the Duomid in Alaska. And, we are 6’3″ and I am 5’10” so will we fit with obligatory inner bugnet given the season? This is a two person tent, or a really big person tent. Sections are built one inch longer than your actual post-to-post measurements. The Duomid by Virgina-based Mountain Laurel Designs (MLD) is a single trekking pole pyramid (“mid”) shelter, that can accommodate up to two people (hence “duo”). The latest Duomid has hooks on the inside of the fly’s corners for securing the inner to, although in practice they need lengths of bungee so as not to stress the connections. Well at least length wise. I finally bought that brand new Duomid in 2020, ordering direct from MLD (although there are now European distributors of some of MLD’s products), which meant I could have exactly what I wanted. Setup is easily done with a single tent pole and extender, I usually move the pole far off to one side in order to give me a lot more room. A typical section is a top and bottom cedar 2×4 with the mountain laurel branches woven in between. Here is a quick timelapse of me setting up the Duomid. The handrails are beautiful!!! Granted if your smaller than me than a Solomid would probably be more than enough. I’m 6′ and 175, and I’m trying to decide between the Solomid 2016 and the Duomid (to use with my bivy). I find this to be a palace for the weight.
