Brooks-Range is 'a small company for mountaineers providing a selection of innovative, top-quality equipment for alpinists, backcountry travelers, and professional mountain and ski guides'. Their award winning 'Rocket' tent used a laminated cuben fibre, which provided a reflective heat barrier. However the fabric suffered from de-lamination and the tent was subsequently removed from the market. Enter the 'Propel', using the same design but with 15d silnylon.
Judging a book from its cover it looks like a proficient tent. It is undoubtedly suited to the mountains as a shelter to be used while pushing to the summit. The 15d fabric throughout can attest to this. However, I also think it looks like it has potential as a winter tent for bushwalking here in Tasmania and over in New Zealand.
The Propel is new to the market and there is limited reviews of it online. Just wondering if any of you guys have had experience with it or have any comments from looking at the specifications/photos? I also appreciate that most of you guys have just entered into Summer so it is probably not the best time to be asking on an American based forum, but I figured it was worth a shot.
