ordering a second set. My girlfriend and I recently started leading trad. We both really like these. place easy and solid plus they are light and pretty cool when you see a pocket to shove one in. good in all sorts of cracks too. lighter than cams too
if yer gonna do ramens go to an asian grocery store and buy the good ones. They cost more but are still practically free, maybe 50-90 cents instead of 25 cents for top ramen or maruchan, they are way better. I like to do ramen and buy pouches of chicken or tuna at the grocery store to add in. works well if you are making a couple ramens (you and a friend) then split the pouch of protein. makes a decent dinner for about 2 bucks each person. Or when I am in the Boundary waters I just throw some fresh caught fish in the soup.
Seems pretty good even with some snow on it. This is at 9700 ft in wyoming snowy range, medicine bow mountain. 3 nights held up well, would be tough to use this tent in these conditions with two people really. Plenty of room for gear and stuff for one camping in snow. With the snow filling all around it the floor space decreased a bit. With two it would have to be cleared more often as its a tight squeeze. one of the pole slots ripped alittle also. I think I would have preferred clips instead of the poles passing thru nylon sleeves.
price is good, space for 2 and seems durable so far. Had it out in a couple light snows already. Heading to Wyoming to trek into the snowy range for a few days, will update after a few uses there. So far:
bit heavy -
Midway for ease of set up+/-
vents well or not at all if you wanna shut in. +
overall for the dough pretty good so far.
