Topic - Zip-less Tent Door Designs

MtnGeekUK - on 17 Dec 2012
Hi all,

My plan of making my own inner tent (and maybe even an outer!) hasn't gone away.

As I'm not particularly handy with a sewing machine (just yet!), and having looked at how to sew zips onto fabric and being a little scared, I'm looking for alternative solutions.

One design I saw (but the website is down, so can't link to it), was a design which was like a cylinder of material (with the obvious hole in the middle to get in / out, which was then draw-corded to create the closure. This appeals as an option (as I think technically, even I could do it), but wondering if anyone has:

- used / seen this design

- if so, comments on how they found it (good or bad)

- if something could be made to deal with venting in warm weather (the example I saw was a winter tent, so certainly no mozzi door!)

Thanks all in advance...
