Aaron, I'm busy (boring work) but I will get around to looking at some stiffer poles, but if anyone has done the research I'd appreciate any advice. I had already decided to use trekking poles for hiking anyway to take weight off my feet and help knees in descending, so that works well with the Notch's use of trekking poles, and a 700g dual-wall shelter with all that space is a treat, but I had also hoped to use the Easton light poles for bike camping so I'm a little disappointed with the poles bendiness, so a stiffer but still compact pole option would be good to know. When I'm biking, and not using trekking poles, I'm not weight focused but I am volume focused, a lot of cyclists are like that, so a stiffer pole about 110cm long which folds no more than 14" and a lot stiffer than the .344 poles is on my watch list. Any suggestions?
I have 2 weeks in England in September and will be using the Notch then. I also got a Scarp, not sure if I'll be using the Scarp, with the solid roof I'm concerned it will be too warm, but its got a good reputation in the wind, and snow loading, which the Notch isn't really intended for.
