Re: Re: re
Tom, that's a stretch. You simply can't equate Rapid Trident with ReForGer. Are you trying to make a moral equivalence between an annual exercise involving a paltry 1300 troops to somet...

Ah, I see.
Ah, I get you. Well, in that weight range, frankly, your options are VERY limited for a fully-enclosed tent. Zpacks is probably your best bet, as others have said, because you'll almost certa...
