Mountain David's Bio

I'm a news addict. But I also like riding my bike, travel, and backpacking all over, especially in the Sierra.

It took me a long time to learn to set up my I-tent. But with practice it has become easy. I've used it in very windy conditions in Patagonia: No wind noise due to taut skin.
I have never had condensation problems as I have with silnylon tarp tents.
I'm 5' 10" and barely fit, so I would go for the larger Ahwahnee, but I got a great buy on e-Bay.
I wish the tarp tents would use the breathable fabric, to make a lighter 3 season tent.
The I-tent works well in wind, snow, hail, ice. An amazing tent.

I forgot to mention two negatives.
One is that the poles fit into grommet-like slots which aren't adequate, and if you let the pole slip out, it can easily make a hole in the floor of the tent. My tent is patched in two places from such occurrences.
When it is very wet, and you open the door, water pours into the tent. It's best to use the vestibule in very rainy climes. (you set up the tent from inside, so that's a big plus in rain!)
