Sorry Tim. I'm a bit quick on the trigger when it comes to reccomending tents!davis2001r6 wrote:Dang it Matt you beet me to it. I was going to suggest the Sirious tent as well.
Yeah, the vestibules are a little small, but this is the desert so I can live with that. For the price, you just can't beat the weight. Also, the mesh walls are awesome on warmer nights.davis2001r6 wrote: About a 1/2 lb lighter as well. I was never a big fan of the vestibule set up though, but never actually seen one in use to see how well it works.
This tent appears similar to the Sierra Designs Sirius that we were discussing above. I believe that the areas not covered by the rainfly are waterproof, single-wall technology. And yes, the reason is to save weight.Grasshopper wrote:I was just looking at the specs for the Kelty Teton 2. I just don't understand why they decided to leave most of 2 of 4 sides of the vestuble/rainfly not covering those 2 tent sides in total??
No advantage unless you have two people. But, if you alternate doors you would wear out zippers half as fast... Or if you only used one door until the zipper broke you could just sew up the zipper and use the other one.Grasshopper wrote: what is the advantage of having two doors (and just another door zipper to bust) IF you hardly ever plan to sleep with two in the tent? Just curious...
Yeah, what Matt Gilbert said. Besides, who would buy and lug around a 2 person tent if they didn't plan on having 2 people inside of it? When I backpack without my girlfriend, I bring my 1 person tent for sure. But if we're together and one of us needs to get up in the middle of night, it's nice to not have to crawl over the other person to get out of the tent.Grasshopper wrote:what is the advantage of having two doors (and just another door zipper to bust) IF you hardly ever plan to sleep with two in the tent?

I'm guilty then! I love bringing my 2 person everywhere, at just a few ounces more than my 1 person set-up I have room for everything.Besides, who would buy and lug around a 2 person tent if they didn't plan on having 2 people inside of it?
