Bivy killer -wind boss
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
First time using it I pitched on a windy ridge broadside to the wind at 11,000 ft. Despite gusts hitting me broadside all night, it held up.
The next trip was windless and cold - no condensation. Pitching is easy and it is far sturdier than it looks.
One weak point is that the poles sit on a reinforced patch on the tent floor. They can slip off and poke a hole in the floor if pitched on hard rock. On dirt they divit in the ground and stay there. I might glue some o rings on the patches to corral the poles but that would add two grams....
