Marmot Aplinist Tent 2P
5 5

Just got back from climbing in the Delta Range in Alaska and loved this tent. It was easy to set up in windy conditions and in rain. With the exterior poles and single wall construction, the tent goes up while the insides stay dry. Super strong in winds of 30-40 mph. The inside of the tent stayed warm and no condensation even with out the use of the top vents or door vent. I had them open but there was too much air getting in, but nice to know they work. Plenty of room for two plus gear. Vestibule is not much to speak of, just big enough to get shoes on and off with out tracking in snow. Window on the front was easy enough to see out of to check conditions. I set the tent up right on the snow without a ground cloth and still no seepage or moisture through the floor.

The only thing you have to be aware of is the door/vestibule entrance, when it is raining and you are getting in or out, water/snow goes right in the door if you're not quick to zip up. But it is better than some of the MH or BD tents that don't have a vestibule.

Over all, great tent.

I love chacos. I have had a pair like this for the last seven years and they finally needed replacing. The Z/1 are about the same, just a little thicker in the sole than the last pair I had but it has the same strap system. They are super comfortable and great tread and grip. Only think is, I bought them a half size larger than I wear which means I have to tighten them down more and now the excess webbing flops around, but it is not that bad. All in all great shoe.

So I have worn these pants climbing and skiing. They are fantastic. the cut is spot on, prefect in the waist and just the right length to not step on them and look like I am treading high water. They are warm to the point that if I am standing around I will not get cold but not so warm that while climbing I was over heating.
