i'm not sure the mesh would keep out dust.
it also says floor length is 90"all the other sites (including marmot's) say that the length is 88".
yeah, upon further research, i noticed that the quartz's measurement of 110" is actually a width length including the vestibules (i think). so the inside dimensions are actually a bit larger on this model.
thanks. i'm also debating if it's worth the extra pound or so to get the desired length by going with the marmot limelight or mountain hardware drifter.
thanks. shoot, 83" is a little on the short side for a 6'1"er like myself.
where are the length and width dimensions?
is there was a longer version of this tent? 83" is just too short for a 6'1"er like myself.
this tent is smaller than the The North Face Quartz 22 Bx Tent yet it weighs more why?
i saw someone mention it didn't work with an iPhone. anyone else try/fail with an iPhone (3gs specifically)?
...i went with a small rather than my usual medium (6'1", 165lbs) i think because i read if you wanted that athletic fit it's best to size down um, it's not. don't size down. the small was quite small. i'm hoping the medium will be significantly longer in the torso and arms. like others have said, there are NO monkey holes, as it is pictured. other than these issues, i'm pleased with the jacket. it seems like it will be the perfect mid layer i've been searching for.
as usual, the service at backcountry is great.
apparently it doesn't have the thumbholes (as pictured) either.
the pulse and s1 both have DOUBLE the range that the freeride has.
it's black. i tried it on at the backcountry.com store.
i would bet marmot's site photo/description is more accurate. almost everything i've purchased (or gone to the store to try on) from backcountry.com has been misrepresented color-wise from the photos on this site sometimes the items are a better color in person, sometimes worse.
does this piece have a zip pocket on the sleeve? the pic with the guy in the blue one at the beach, makes it look as if it does.
it's cut shorter because it's meant to be an insulating layer that way it won't hang out underneath the bottom of your shell.
is this the piece that's supposed to replace this: Backcountry.com Siphon Wool Hooded Jacket - Men's
any plans to make one that looks as sweet as the grey siphon?
