Inner mesh "bivy" on 04/29/2010 11:19:55 MDT Print View

Is the inner mesh "bivy" separate? I mean can it be used under any tarp? And do you know how much just the mesh "bivy" section weighs?

Yes, the inner mesh is a stand alone item and attaches by a clip/buckle at either end. It is adjustable for a higher or lower pitch. I don't know the weight of just the mesh but I can weigh each item and list them individually.

A good solo setup on 04/29/2010 16:51:01 MDT Print View

This looks to be a good inexpensive, 3 season, light, solo, double wall setup, for people that want to keep the weight and pack size down.

If you use trekking poles you could probably leave the poles at home, saving even more weight.

If I didn't already have a similar setup already, I'd jump on it.

Weights by item on 04/30/2010 08:54:10 MDT Print View

For those that have requested a breakdown of weight by item, here goes:

Fly with guylines and tensioners 8.4oz
Mesh inner with floor 11.5oz
Poles 3.3oz
10 Ti skewers 0.8oz

Total in stuff sacs 24.4oz

The floor is pretty heavy duty eliminating the need for a ground cloth. The poles, skewers, and Fly would be great with a bivy and would come in at just under 13oz plus the bivy.

Thanks for looking.

Tarp tent available? on 06/22/2011 11:46:59 MDT Print View

This is a long shot but is it still FS?

I am thinking this is a great set-up for the Winds summer use, but I can't find any reviews. Do you have any opinions on how well this works in the mountains?

Thanks,
