Hi Bud, I'm sorry to hear about your illness and hope that all of this works out well for you.
I don' need any of these items right now, but I would certainly encourage any of you who do to purchase from Bud, rather than a retailer so that he will be well provided for. Thank you!
Just to clarify the fabric on the BD HiLight 2010, here is a quote from the manufacturer's description:
"Black Diamond HiLight tent is now made with NanoShield fabric, a new proprietary breathable single-layer fabric. NanoShield is extremely water resistant: it has the highest water column rating of any breathable single-layer, single-wall fabric at 1700mm. Such as outstanding rating is the result of BD's exclusive Silicone Nanocell coating. This coating has a much lower volume than typical water-resistant coatings, allowing the fabric to remain superlight, soft and packable."
