Long wait
Currently a 5-6 week wait if he gets one of the ZPacks. Looks like a great choice though. The Tarptents are a good choice, but they're also 3x the weight of the Hexamid: http://www.tarptent....

Re: Re: you dont need a rain fly
Thanks for the replies everyone. Kat, the number is just a wild estimate. I figure 3 yards of fabric is about 3.3oz, plus some webbing to attach to the staking points, plus seams, plus thread, ...
