Additional pictures with pad on 06/13/2013 14:56:10 MDT Print View

Got a chance to set up the mid this afternoon and got a few pics with an Exped UL 7 extra wide in it to show how much room there is. This time it is set up with a 61" center pole to check it out set up close to the ground. In the original pictures it is set up with a 64" center pole. Even set up low, there is plenty of room at the head and foot ends even on the Exped pad. The ground sheet is a Zpack ground sheet/poncho (twin size) and the bug net is a Sea to Summit Nano.

I almost got this instead of the 8x10 tarp but decided I wanted to be lighter and just deal with the less protection. But I love tipi shaped tents.

It looks awesome hope your happy with it!

Rich,

Thanks for the pics. I got notification that mine shipped today. I changed to the Ultamid 2 afterwards.

Curious about the Seas to Summit netting. How is working for you from a setup perspective? Does it have a mesh floor?

Thanks

Derrick

How many people can fit? on 06/13/2013 18:57:59 MDT Print View

Is this designed as a 2 person tent? I'm still in the market for a shelter for my wife, 3 yr old daughter, and myself. Not sure if they will go for a floorless shelter, though.

I really like the net. It is floorless and has a thin shock cord drawstring on the bottom edge so it wraps around the bottom edge of your pad. I have not had any problems so far with it staying on and I tend to sleep very athletically. Easy out too as you can flip it off when you want to get up so no scooting to the door. Weighs about 3oz.

Thank you Richard on 06/14/2013 03:53:18 MDT Print View

Great photos, they say a lot. This looks like an awesome 2 person cuben pyramid shelter. The door on the short side makes it easier to live in if you are 2.

Drooling...

Good day for HMG on 06/14/2013 06:07:46 MDT Print View

Others are getting their tarps today, my packs coming in...
They need to hire more people to keep up with orders. You could pay them cheap so our price comes down and Mike could stand around watching them to make sure the straps are cut straight...jeez...
There was an old man, a little boy, and a donkey...
It looks like a damn nice tent for the cash. I'm envious. Thanks for the pictures.

@Richard: That's an awesome set up. Love the groundsheet + bug net inner; super modular!

@Ken: I feel your pain. There seems to be a few people here who not only think their opinions are more valid than others, but also seem to feel the need to point out (as rudely as possible) whenever someone says something they think is "wrong".

That net/poncho combination looks like a nice system, I had never considered that before. Thanks Richard.

If you don't screw up... on 06/15/2013 08:01:31 MDT Print View

...you're not working hard enough.
When was the last time anybody here had a perfect day at work? Why all the nit picking when others don't? Everything and everybody has their flaws. While we strive for perfection, it's an imperfect world. That is the beauty of it. The world is perfect in it's own imperfection.

"There seems to be a few people here who not only think their opinions are more valid than others, but also seem to feel the need to point out (as rudely as possible) whenever someone says something they think is "wrong"."

I do that too at times. Usually right though, most of the time. Like now.

A lot of the time I don't think the comments were intended to be rude. Just a short, blunt, cut to the chase type answer/comment because some people don't like to type a tome for every post. That lovely fog of the internet clouding how we said it tone wise.

I wish HMG all the best that they deserve. My suggestion is to pay just a little more attention to the little details. Good luck.

Perhaps we all need to pay more attention to the details. Such is life.

FWIW, the Ultamid isn't on the HMG webpage today as an option under "shelters." Discontinued?

Davey, I have no interest in continuing this idiotic spat. I think it's clear who the troll is.
