Brick, Thanks for reply and insight. While that 'fun ultralight' comment
didn't originate with me but hey enjoy the active discussion. I guess I am
not fully into ultralight and I'll get a vestibule so in those rains and
sleet, I can
do some warm cooking. Seems I am now between a Sierra Design
and Walrus Arch Rival. Anyone have suggestion on the minimum size vestible one
While others have recommended smaller size tents and other mfg,looks like I
am now focusing on one of three. of course I'll visit our local outdoor
shop and frocilic around. I'll see if I can rent each of 'em.
But pending that:
Votes everyone (I realise each comes with their own views). Has anyone had
any bad experiences with these below? Anyone have experience with Arch
Rievel in a light snow?
a. Sierra Designs Meteor Light CD Tent
b. Sierra Designs Orion CD Tent
c. Walrus Arch Rievel
Thanks in advance. All advice welcomed, tom 'hikenet' caggiano
