There comes a time to complete the equipment to PCT with the last thing that I have listed and it.

Of course, the thinking is ultra-Lite.

About TARPTENT everyone here recommend, but there's another kind of model I am having him quite a bit and see a number of advantages:

You can get it at reasonable prices of less than $ 200. Very spacious and pretty serious father (MSR).

Anyone know/experience?

Are you kidding us?  Do you really think a tent weighing two pounds like you on the PCT? Unlikely to have more than two weeks as manifested on the road unless it be rainy year.  The price of the TARPTENT however not really amazing for something.  You can probably find it at discount new KICKOFF of the PCT and even if not, not anymore.

Anyway the TARPTENT is made from silnilon, which means that after a few months of use, hard rain (again in contrast to PCT AT rain many times stronger, less shelter from trees) the unusual move just a little water, which can be quite miserable.  I wrote about the TARPTENT made sail cloth.  If you have the money, I'd go for it in any case, this is not eBay TARPTENT at that price.

Apropos Amir. I tend to do most of my mistakes when buying supplies topic under pressure time and think I got a bargain.  Usually when I buy made I find it similarly equipment elsewhere.  The price of the TARPTENT because there seems to be enough other buyers, so the price that is similar to the sale price of the market.  More interest than you have to buy the cheap tent that for cheap shipping, while you inpach your shipping costs significantly and reduce the difference between new and used.

And one more thing.  Silaniilon, my experience with three different silaniilon TARPS, far less waterproof after about 3 or 4 months, which may cause, and is concerned, in which more than 50% likely to be down from the rain, you'll find that you're less dry in the morning than I hoped.

On the other hand, if you do not use a tent most of the way (most definitely) maybe the tent lasts and ravage all the way to Canada.  I don't really believe that, but I want to build an alibi in case it turns out that tent remains waterproof and upload everything I'm saying here is bullshit.

Third parties. Remember what I wrote about the TARPTENT GOSSAMAR of GEAR made of cloth of interprets.  I don't know personally how he lasted six months but realized that more durable, more flexible and easier.  He let generation of shelters, and more affordable and not so related to the summary I buy it myself.  If you didn't listen to me (that should be said in a tone of Polish mother offended) there's no reason to listen to me.

Rooney, GOSS's website and found the Tharp you're talking about. Can you tell me which model do you recommend?

Http://www.gossamergear.com/cgi-bin/gossamergear/shelter_matrix.html

I don't really know anything about Tarptent what his weight including floor?? Not really been able to figure it out.

Now let's make some right in the head, have the Tharp (silant) I purchased already for the aplatim. ($ 200 at the time). Very easy (I think 400 South), simple, and proven himself against the rain. Do you think he can catch me for PCT?

In aplatim I slept in so shlterim actually zdkati him except for a few instances (and two of them in the rain).

And another thing-now budget considerations. Which tent/Tharp you recommend? (Including Trapp got)

And I'm not under pressure, just want to shut down this corner of the tent which is the latest I have left, and I don't intend to hold an item so important like the tent until KICKOFF.

You are right next to the right link:

Http://http://www.gossamergear.com/cgi-bin/gossamergear/Squall_Classic.html

I guess you get the idea.  The structure and design of the tent is just like the original TARPTENT Henry Myers is supposed to be the best thing.  The unique thing about this tent fabric is specially the SPINAKER and silaniilon of him made all the other tents.   This is a new generation of materials and my assumption is that a large proportion of the equipment good olteraliiti will this stuff, but it may take years, as it took years to silaniilon for small companies that were olteraliit's niche commercial companies that sold at REI.   There are several advantages to spincr on the silaniilon, which is a bit easier, is its resistance against water. If you've ever been under silaniilon in the rain he fawns (SAGGS) under water and as a result many times water collected on the tent it burdensome and tend to seep in through the fabric, which associates you strike the tent, and/or enhance the strings of the tent during the night.  This problem depends largely on the design too much maybe the TARPTENT immune against it.   Spincr anyway, and not seen this tent remains tense after days of rain in TRAILDAYS.

I can't vouch about the durability of the spincr, because I don't know anyone who used over time (the new material), but the site claim he's durable.  The silnilon in my experience not bad, especially if it is exposed to the Sun because the heights ultraviolet radiation destroys the silnilon.

Anyway you can use TARP but be cases (Sierra or North) thanks for any shelter closed. Mosquitoes of the PCT can be much worse than if the AT.

In short the "hostel, I think, the first representative of the next generation of equipment. The luck is that it is produced by equipment that is basically not going to happen.  They were probably could sell the tent for a double, and because people would buy is unique. In 275 $ investment in the tent is definitely paying off. In short, his "hostel looks almost perfect, if ever I should leave the trees, I would choose him.

So let me sum it up-amltzatch-taking for PCT type TarpTent tent when the ה"סטנדרטים models."

Http://www.tarptent.com/products.html

(If I understand it correctly the skoolle is recommended).

If I want to invest a little extra there following in the same idea just made more advanced:

Http://www.gossamergear.com/cgi-bin/gossamergear/Squall_Classic.html

And stable?

An precision.  Greece and the difference in price is only people (and largely stems from the fact that spincr fabric more expensive than silaniilon) is definitely worth it.

Anyway, you might want to check out what popped him on the Internet.  All my information as Greece comes from the owner of gusamar (which sounds pretty reliable, but still) and mtillt (Terry 5 PCT) used only for a few weekends, the actual information is quite limited.  What matters is the durability of the tent after 4 months of use.

Anyway, even if you don't go on, I think you should go to the manifold at Henry shears. The difference in weight is not critical, and the extra size allows you to put all the pkloth. I met people who didn't buy the double acetaro.

The tent fabric sails sounds nice, but I think he hasn't proven himself enough and I really prefer something a bit bigger to serve me to the PCT.

The model that most impressed me this Double Rainbow at Henry. And now I seem to go on it. There's no way he'd do some Sale for Christmas holiday?

It is the questions and answers on their website.

Q: I need a tent for 2 people. What's Squall, the difference between the 2 and Cloudburst 2?
A: The Cloudburst 2 is designed for comfort; The Squall 2 is designed for efficiency with pre-paid basis attention to comfort as well. Here are a few points of comparison:

  • The Cloudburst 2 has slightly more elbow room in front than the Squall 2ndrough the peak height is higher on the Squall 2. Two can sit up in front in bothshelters. The the walls.40 are are very steep on the Cloudburst 2, slightly less so on the Squall 2.
  • The Cloudburst 2 console up with only three stakes; The Squall 2 works best with 4 stakes but can work with only 3 stakes (with additional guyline).
  • The Cloudburst 2 has unrestricted entry/exit; the Squall with one or two front poles has slightly restricted entry/exit.
  • The Cloudburst 2 flaps allow the storm full sidewall width to be used in stormy weather. When not needed, the flaps stow away and the walls.40 are netting have the same dimensions and "as the Squall. The Squall 2 sidewalls can be easily lowered by the front corners restaking as needed.
  • The footprint is smaller 2 Cloudburst.
  • The two Squall may use one or two trekking poles in the front, Cloudburst 2 must use both languages included poles.
  • The Cloudburst 2 front awning (beak) offers good front door protection as does the awning on the Squall 2. The spit and venting opening adds entry/exit ease of use.
  • The Squall 2 is about six ces oun lighter and a better solution for one and two-person use when shelter and minimal weight are the primary concerns.
  • The Cloudburst 2 will handle more snow loading without wall collapse.

I think the difference comes down to a few ounces more, in riyavo you get more space, more comfort and a better resistance and dynamic of snow (not us) and mostly more expensive price.

So that's it. Was also buying a tent-went for the biggest tent (three people) that can serve me. The difference in weight between the Rainbow team match is just 28 g and the small difference in weight compared with the significant addition of the size comes from the island using an internal arc, which should reduce the resistance to snow. (Tent is set to 3 and 3 + seasons).
