I have a T2 and wish I had a T1 or the DT1 after my last two outings. Aron tried to convince me that I needed a T1. Man I should of listened. Its hard to make that fabric stretch It's easy to compress it down!
Yep, I really don't see a need for a T2 when the weight difference is nil, the compress to the same size. Even the T3 in my mind isn't that much better. I want 26" stays in all my packs and thats the tallest part of any of them.
I have the T1 and use it when I'm out hunting during the day. It packs down small enough for me and you hardly feel it on your back with 10 to 20 pounds in it. Plus, I can use it to haul meat back to camp if I get an animal down.
