“This looks a lot like the similar MH and EMP offerings. Not so good.”
- How so? (Regarding the second observation.)
- For me personally, I wanted a very lightweight freestanding double-wall tent able to fit two small-ish people (who don’t mind getting squished a bit). I found six different models from six different companies (plus a seventh slightly different variation from one of the six companies). They are all obviously watching each other very carefully, or at least their suppliers are. The Foray appealed to me b/c of what seemed to be better weather protection, plus it seemed to suffer a bit less from some of the problem common to all of these.
“The Warmlite does that. (Any word on their woeful quality of construction issues?)”
“It was commented on in the survey of tunnel tents.”
- You guys are referencing Warmlite, not BR, correct? (I searched through the tunnel articles, and found only Warmlite references.)
“However, a true foul weather tent has got to go up fly first, or at least not second.”
- Well, yes, it’s not a double-wall tent with interior poles. If I’m in weather that bad, I’ll just bring a tent with an entirely different design. (Or stay home, hah!)
“And although the height may be the 39" stated by BR (inner-outer?), the front apex is much lower, and slopes sharply on each side, leaving only a skinny little triangle to crawl through to get in and out. Pining for a side entry yet?”
- No, I found the entry just fine.
“Unless I'm missing something, it's hard to see how BPL can recommend this tent.”
- Given my criteria at the beginning, what would you recommend instead?
“And more detail like you always used to have with the tables would be good, too.”
- Yes, the weight specs were mentioned almost in passing ... perhaps because the author was too focused on strange, unamusing, and utterly irrelevant musical analogies?
