Re: Poles inside, A-configuration
I could place the tips either up or down inside the tent, but it looks like the floor is more reinforced than the roof. I don't have rubber protectors, but they're cheap. I still don...

Similar to Yama Mountain Gear Cirriform
This tent seems almost identical to the Yama Mountain gear Cirriform, only with a silnylon roof instead of the cuben found on a Yama, and with a vestibule that goes all the way to the ground. If m...

price drop
I'd let this go for $500 shipped to the lower 48. That's $150 off new, and it has only been used twice.

Re: Poles on the interior
@ Paul, No, I haven't tried the poles inside the tent yet. I don't really see a point, and I'd rather have them poking the ground than poking the inside of the tent.

fully extended
I should also note, that when I pitched it with the two poles in front, they were fully extended to the "stop" mark on them.

3 poles are great
I was able to test the two trekking pole idea, and it worked great. I think I will be doing that moving forward. This time, we went to bed on dry grass. There was a slight breeze that I ...

oops
Paul, I think youre right. Sorry k haven't tested it with two poles in an a up front. I dont see why it wouldn't work, but I'll give it a shot and let you know how it turns out.

nice
The squall 2 looks nice, but it wouldn't work for where I camp (mainly desert). It'd have the same issue as my old hexamid duplex. The bathtub floors are so low that any breeze would blow...

easy to set up
To be clear, it takes 12 stakes, but you find staking a tent difficult, you could run lean and only use 6 stakes. Give it a try first, you'll see how easy it is. There's no magic way ...
