Winter Dream in the Sil-nylon vs. HG Cuben Fiber Diamond Asym.

What are the pros and cons ?

Does Cuben fiber last as long as Sil-nylon ?

I need some info. Thanks :?:

I love my winter dream in silnylon. If I had it to do over again I would have gone with the poly. The quality is amazing! The coverage is bombproof. That does come at the cost of weight.

The HG Asym would be great for a minimalist approach, so a comparison is kinda hard because the both have their purpose.

My suggestion... get both that way you have a loaner [emoji12]

Just looking for the pros and cons of the fabric at this time. I know the weight difference other than that, what about fabric strength, ware&tare, etc.
The sales start in a few hours and I am getting everything from one of them (HG or UGQ)
I am not sure on the tarp.....I like the UQ that both venders offer. UGQ has the slim lead with the pole mod for the tarp.

Silnylon "wets" out eventually, absorbing water. Cuben fiber and silpoly do not.

Cuben is repaired with Cuben tape, but more sturdy to avoid damage.

Is the discount the same with both manufacturers?
