Hi All. I have been away for a week hiking on the CDT. Here are my responses to some of the questions raised about the shelters roundup.
Tyvek: On the Hang 'em High website, click on "catalog", then enter "Tyvek" in the search box and it will come up.
Terra Nova 1 gram stakes: They actually weigh 1.28 gram (.045 ounce) each. They are like tooth picks, and I wonder how well they will secure a tent. It takes 12 of them to stake the Laser Photon. I think some heftier stakes are needed to secure the 4 main guylines on the tent, at least.
ID Bug Dome/SilDome Tent: They use the same pole, and the combination makes into a double wall tent if the SilDome is laid over the BugDome with pole. I don't know if they attach together so they can be set up as a unit.
Stephenson's 2R: I don't believe this is a new tent. Note that our Outdoor Retailer LW shelters roundup only focuses on new tents hitting the market in 08 and 09, and does not cover older models.
Exchange Lite Fabric: I double checked and was told that it is an eVENT product. I believe the GTX product is FLO2.
