Thanks for the welcome
Ok, I had to do some quick shopping for a tent, worthwhile because I got to see some pitched, unfortunatly they where all low end. ~But it helped a lot for sizing and noticed the variable 'Strength' -Weather/wind and that helped for deciding on type. I will get a very good 3 man, long hikes in the bush and I'll need the space, leg room and of course the pricy light weight
. I did buy a $100 Coleman 5 man tent for 'Company' and a weekend at the lake. Nothing grand, but won't plan on keeping it any way and no chance of rain.
BTW, why don't manafactures list the water proof quality? The Coleman actually did and is rated a low 800mm. So I'm going to hose it down after the weekend and see, put a bucket of water in it and see how the condensation does.
I understand the mm factor will increase the density of the tent, perhaps I was a wee bit overzealous with a 3000mm rating, though that rating goes beyond 10,000mm.
looks pretty nice, I'll need to see if I can see one pitched and ready. This is sorta like buying a car sight unseen
If I'm going to spend $370+ I would like to see it pitched first.
I'm also looking at a new Backback, though OT and just a note:
Gregory "Whitney" or/ Osprey "Crescent 110" Yes, I'm pretty much starting over
and also a decent sleeping bag MontBell "U.L. Alpine Down Hugger #5" ~Though that's still on the long list right now, for checking that item out.
vaiable, sounds like a Wabbit.
