" Why does the website have to review an item faster? Backpacking kwipment does not really go out of date like the new Iphones do, so you have lots of time to look around for what you need."
No fault of this website per se, but every time something new and lighter comes out, folks around here want to jump on it an buy it. I was in no hurry for this tent, and in fact don't NEED this tent at all. I already have tents I'm quite happy with, and it's mid-winter here so I wouldn't even think about using it in the field for another 4 or 5 months, but I bought the tent (second hand from Greg) mostly so I could give the forum members here a quicker and more timely review before they rush out and buy it. I kinda knew, since Greg was pimping the virtues of the tent on his thread one day, and selling it just a few days later, that it would have some flaws (all tents do). I just hate for folks to blindly buy expensive stuff without knowing the full story. For instance, you couldn't tell, just from looking at the website, that this tent had no side guy-outs...Bash me if you want, but I'm writing this as a courtesy to the long standing members of this site and not for my own benefit.
And I agree with Roger. In fact, if I had decided to keep this tent, the first thing I would have done is to add cuben rain awnings (for more space, more light, more ventilation etc..), which would have required additional guy lines anyway. It just irks that a pup tent this expensive didn't come from the factory with such basic stuff already added, including guy-out points along the side.
