How does the Ultamid 2 compare with the closest comparable-sized mids?
+ 1 Dan. Makes sense. And a zipper garage really helps. How does the Ultamid 2 compare with the closest comparable mids from MLD, Oware, etc. in terms of height, head room and floor space?

Leki length; Anyone try the Leki flick locks? Bueller? Bueller?
The Leki's may have the advantage in length (my AL Leki twist lock poles are totally solid at 135cm). Wish there was some feedback on their new flick lock models.

Leki flick lock carbon and AL; Carbon vs. AL; Anyone try the Leki flick locks?
I've heard quite a few reports of SUL carbon poles breaking. Perhaps the BD and Leki carbon poles are much stronger given their thickness and weight. Note that carbon tent poles are under muc...
