View Full Version : composite stay question

07-15-2012, 12:19 PM
Is the wood treated and if so is it water resistant or waterproof. I'm wondering if exposure to moisture (sweat, elements, rafting trip gone bad) would cause the wood to deteriorate or rot or if swelling and contrating would affect the carbon.

ams., we tested them for 24 hours underwater. No problem. They are sealed.

Thanks for asking.

If my pack is still wet when I get home from an extended trip I'll take my carbon stays out and let them dry on there own. It may not be necessary, but I sleep better. phil

Good to know! The stays are really something else.
