[ft-l] Tent Opinion

I think you will like your Nomad or 2-4-2, even if it takes
Kurt a long time to deliver.  He usually gets swamped with
orders around the beginning of the year from AT thru-hikers
and he gives them a certain priority.  I have 2 Nomads
myself and love them.  But I didn't recommend them because
the orginal poster seemed very concerned about condensation
and all single-wall tents have that problem to some degree.

But for those who are not overly concerned with a bit of
condension on the inside of the tent and are willing to
accept that condition to cut their tent weight down to
approximately 2 lbs for a 1 or 2 person tent, check out the
following 2 websites:

http://www.wanderlustgear.com  (Nomad and 2-4-2)
http://www.trailquest.net/store.html  (Tacoma, Tacoma-for-2,
and Arapaho)

These are tents made for hikers by hikers.
