The Epic I just bought has a noticeable sticky coating on the back side.
The seller said it was made for Black Diamond tents. Do you know of any differences in
the Malibu fabric used by Black diamond and the Malibu fabric otherwise used, say by
Patagonia or by Oware. I would like to know if this is flawed or an improvement on the

Anyone out there have a Black Diamond tent
and could tell me if the inside is a bit "sticky"

I have a BD Lighthouse(04) and a MLD Epic Bivy(05) that also uses "Malibu" Epic. Neither has a noticeable sticky side.

You could ask Ron Bell at MLD---I believe he has a new batch of this year's Epic.
