hmm... how do I rank a groundcloth. seems fine to me. a little heavy, but probably well spent on durability. i spent enough on the tent, so I use it. one trip to wheeler with it so far, seemed worth the cost to me.
bought the tent it took it right up mt. wheeler in early april 07. love the setup, poles, weight/size, and guylines, etc. It's a fantastic 1-man tent, which is how I used it. Wasn't psyched to seam-seal on my own, but did - haven't seen it in any precip yet. My only small beef was the 'flappy-ness' in fairly high winds (30-40) of the long sides. I sewed additional guyline loops above the logos and in my windy-city backyard, it looks very promising.
