"zpacks hexamid twin tent: entry and floor Q"
You *can* use a polycryo groundsheet beneath the mesh floor with this tent if rain is not in the forecast. This would no doubt help on already wet ground. If it does begin to rain you can just yank...

"Shell-Rain Jacket UL/SUL recommendations"
Last year I made it through the entire hiking season just carrying a very lightweight NF waterproof jacket that didn't breathe at all and would probably soak through in several hours of rain. T...
