On TV. Never in real life, although I am a skeptic who occasionally gets spooked at night. Anybody have any experience with this? I figure that a large community who spends lots of time in t...

Re: Re: Re: Review: ZPacks Duplex
I thought about the additional tie-outs as well, but I kinda doubt the webbing attachment is reinforced strongly enough to withstand harsh wind. It is designed to hold a rolled-up door, after al...

Good to know
Thanks, John. ZPacks is seriously awesome. And the Duplex?? The very best backpacking tent ever. Yeah, it costs a lot. But so does a Ferrari. You get what you pay for, and I like havin...

Black Tac-Toggles

EE Accomplice
Everything ZPacks is top notch. Top notch is kinda spendy. However, the EE quilts are better (IMHO) due to the vertical baffles. Seriously-this is a huge advantage. Get the 800 fill with ...

These might work
