Poor review without proper testing of the tent
What is the purpose of these reviews? If it is to decide whether a tent is suitable as a long term purchase this review falls way short. You should be testing this tent on hikes where there are...

Therm-a-Rest Neoair

Pros: Lots of loft for the 400 grams of total weight. More than a WM Highlight for instance. Cons: Too narrow. Way too narrow to sleep in for me and I like sleeping bags people normally say are too...
