[QUOTE = MikeC]
What's so different between the torque to TERRANOVA LASERPHOTON a few spotty little biz force-features and the latter easier???
Mickey


A difference of some 250-300 $, not serious.

Of course it isn't-TT option unit.
I personally think it was a successful tents with good cost/benefit ratio, a good option for those looking for a lightweight tent first.

You're obviously right (not that treated to LASERULTRA made and CUBEN 1000GBP!!!

And I agree that TT is bomb-but just trying to say you should study the subject in depth to discover the differences and options (e.g. BA FLYCREEK UL or KILO EASTON etc.

Mickey, I also have this feeling. But I must say that the CLOUDBURST seems interesting as a family tent. 1.5 pounds. Maybe we can settle it with 3 kids. It seems.

I highly recommend everyone to see the options link .

You can sort by. Very helpful when choosing a tent.

The table doesn't lie. But in this case she did!!!

The weights where not relevant to comparison. For example HEXAMID ZPACKS weighs 439 grams – including actual TARP + everything + rope + network super soft pegs + GROUNDSHEET is very easy from CUBEN-and therefore to compare real tent should look at that weight. Is still easy. But let's not overreact 157 g-come on

Nshchch trail-it weight to 0.5 CUBEN FIBER OSY other manufacturers think is easy, too-delicate and Joe suggested the tent at 0.4 OSY

Mickey, it's probably the version of tarp.
Hexamid single tent weighs some 230 grams. But still the table provides data comfortably. They find her nearly flawless since I saw her the last time six months ago.

The advantage is they really care to get past models, so the table will be updated.

HEXAMID no single tent weighs 230 g-that's exactly what angers me at ZPACKS

If you read his website show that:
The tent weighs 263 303 g (or g without the BEAK. But between all take the BEAK or any wet porch area etc. That's why even go quoting the weight of 303 grams

GROUNDSHEET-you big (unless you want to put a mattress directly on the water) is anything from 60 to 100 g

Now add pegs and received (according to the site itself) 439 g


It's not like other manufacturers do not play games. But I'm just saying that what matters is to compare apples to apples and 230 grams is banana.

Mickey,

I agree with all your comment except for the first sentence.

Joe is very transparent and accurate about the weights in his site so nothing to be mad about ZPACKS-they're not trying to hide anything.

You can get pissed at those who built this table compares bananas to oranges.
