Wow, George, that looks awesome! Glad it carries well, that is the most important part. I think you sewed the X21RC correctly. It would be weird having the dull side out

Re: fast fly
Yea, I think the "fast-fly" weight will come out similar to a non-cuben pyramid tent. Each shelter has their advantages though, so it's not just about weight for me I opted to not ...

Re: read
John, I assumed you were talking about the outer fly weights (which are not listed on Big Sky's site). And in case not, I listed the link to their poles in my 2nd post. No big deal :) Regard...
