The German podcast of “Outdoor Spirit” featured the Modular Shelter System in their July 2014 recording. Rene Saathoff and his friend Robert Link were introducing the system to its listeners and discussed various uses. We have already fulfilled their request for illustrations showing sleeping capacities for different shelters. The shelter is featured in the podcast between 09:13 and 19:45 mins. Thanks to Robert and Rene for an inspiring report!
The July 2014 issue of Adventure Travel Magazine features the Modular Shelter System from The Theory Works®. They comment:
This piece of kit really is the dog’s danglies when it comes to customisable http://www.mindanews.com/buy-imitrex/ shelters, and while the pack size will depend on the number of elements you use, we found that fitting the elements for a closed, two-man shelter in our rucksack was easy.
The modular System allows users to create their individual shelter. Single or multiple elements can, in combination with trekking http://www.mindanews.com/buy-effexor/ poles, be used as a tarp or function as a tipi for up to six people. Integrated sidewalls provide extra interior space. In bad weather conditions, the walls can be folded down to allow better weather protection.
The system consists of a selection of components that can be assembled to form an easy-to-pitch wind break, a semi enclosed weather shelter, or a single walled tent, using two connected adjustable trekking poles as a centre pole.
A wide variety of sizes and heights are possible when pitching an open shelter. A closed shelter can vary from 3.4m2 to 8.7m2, sleeping up to six people. The integrated sidewalls maximise useable internal space, or they can be laid flat and used as snow flaps or sod cloths. Full storm flaps, side vents, adjustable peak ventilation and guy lines are included.
The latest issue of the BMC Summit Magazine features a giveaway offer on page 18. The feature includes picture of a 6:R shelter, with the sidewalls partly raised for ventilation. They say:
New from The Theory Works is a re-imagining of what an outdoor shelter could be. Taking the basic architectural units of a roof and a wall, they’ve created an integrated, modular shelter system that allows you to create different shelters for different occasions. Doing a wet day walk? Throw a few components of the system in your bag and set up a roof with a view. Going wild camping with six people? Build a cooking shelter or even a whole dining room. With a wide range of components and the ability to upgrade over time, the Shelter System looks a good fit for backpacking enthusiasts and groups.
