Nice! Big improvement.

One thing I noticed ... looks like the Double Rainbow specs actually belong to the Scarp 2.

... and the labels for the last two photos of the Sublite Sil are reversed.

Looks nice! The navigation is much more logical now :)

I think the Sublite Sil's specs are a big off; it's listed as being something like 60oz, which seems like a weight that ought to belong to the Hogback :)

No problem... I figured it was a something like a typo. :)

The Contrail is still a 1+ person tent instead of a 2 person...

But thanks for the free promotion of hiking in Europe!

I really like the "How to Setup" for each of the TT versions.
That guy is a excellent actor and straight from the source.

No lines; he'd have to pay himself more for a speaking part.

Sweet site!

Long time in coming, but well done.

Wishing Henry all the best and hope lots of business comes his way.

The new website is nice! Having lots of photos help when looking at shelters, it is also nice when there is a sleeping bag, pack or person in the photos to get an idea of space.

Henry should work on the Search Engine Optimization though, the site doesn't come up high enough on a google search which would drive more people to the site.

My Rainshadow 2 arrived today.

First set up was done in under 5 minutes and it adjusts very easily; it is practically idiot proof. The included Easton stakes are a nice touch also.

Tomorrow: seam-sealing.

Very nice! I especially like the setup videos. I own three Tarptents, and have set up two of those many times, yet I still learned a few helpful tips from those videos--nothing like the designer showing you how it's supposed to be done!

At a guess , 5 oz less for $150 more , is it worth it ?
That would be fly only, I will not debate advantages/disadvantages of a Cuben floor..

another tweak needed: New Tarptent Website on 03/12/2011 20:00:10 MST Print View

FYI, on the "Compare Features" page (allproducts.html):
* more photos link under RainShadow2 takes you to the page for the Cloudburst2
* more photos link under the Moment takes you to the page for the contrail
