Re: Tarptent Virga II vs Rainbow vs SMD Lunar Solo E comparison

Re: Tarptent Virga II vs Rainbow vs SMD Lunar Solo E comparison
All 3 are excellent tents in design, materials, workmanship and after-sale service/warranty. For me, I like to minimize the number of conditions that I need to satisfy when selecting a campsite....

Re: Cheap pack liners
Agree with Gene above. Husky Contractor bags - 35 gal. - 2 mil. Hefty Ultra Flex trash bags - 30 gal - 1.3 mil I've used both, and have found Hefty to be more than adequate. Obviously, ther...

Re: Re: Nice job (but)
Agree with Gear Meister. However, there are a few tents with vestibules that are still completely freestanding -- such as the Hilleberg Staika. 7 pounds minimum weight though.

Re: Nice job (but)
But to be fair, almost all f/s tents with vestibules require that the vestibule flap be pulled out and staked... Just to be sure that you are looking at the correct Double Rainbow (and NOT the f...

Big Sky Ultra C Aluminum Tent Stakes
I've been using titanium shepherd hook stakes for years now -- loving their ultralight weight but disappointed with their suboptimal ground penetration and holding power. These stakes can be bent...
