Sven, I too am interested in why these products are not available. You might receive better response if this inquiry were posted in the "Gear" forum.

The Revelation isn't listed any longer as well. Methinks it probably has to do with the spinnaker shortage Ron has been dealing with. Currently, all of the spinnaker-only items aren't available for purchase. Can't say for sure why he pulled the Superfly and Revelation off the site but I would definitely suspect they aren't discontinued.

Sven,
I did notice this shelter missing on the MLD site, I would think (guess) it is a demand issue, or lack there of. I hope I'm wrong, I've used the MSR Twin Sisters shelter for winter conditions and was hoping to give the MLD Superfly a try this coming fall. The two shelters are very similer in design but the MLD would cut the weight by over half. Maybe I will be able to talk Ron into building one for me if the shelter is gone from the lineup for good, I can hope.

MLD Shelters- Serenity/ ground cloth on 06/18/2008 18:04:03 MDT Print View

Hey Ron, Would you reccomend a ground cloth under the Serenity shelter? The reason I ask is because I way 235 lbs and I am doing 10 day trek with it. Is my weight a facter in possible wear and tear. I know to preen and clean my sleeping spot. Thanks-Insight?
