So far all of OookWorks products have been “made to order”. A few days ago, Sean introduced some tarps and groundsheets (tubs) which are stock items and could be delivered immediately. I was interested in the OookTub as it would give me some flexibility to use my Duomid or possibly Scarp as a single skin shelter. I could have bought a flat groundsheet, but I feel more secure with a tray type groundsheet, given the number of times I’ve had rivulets run under a tent.
While £60 is approximately double the cost of a quality flat groundsheet, you get a high level of workmanship (as usual with OookWorks) and four corner struts with adjustable shockcord that makes a perfect bath tub groundsheet (220cm x 75cm, 150g without stuff sack, 159g with stuff sack).
It’s big enough to accommodate an Exped Synmat UL with space to spare.
Fits perfectly inside my cuben MLD Duomid. The mat is the Nemo Zor short.
I’ve always wondered about using the Tarptent Scarp 1 as a single skin shelter.
Without the inner, the space is huge.
The OookTub fits perfectly.
The Scarp inner weighs 470g, so substituting the OookTub would save around 320g.
So the OookTub introduces some interesting summer options (as long as there aren’t bugs about!).
