Anybody familiar with a German tent manufacturer named "Wechsel"? The web adress is www.wechsel-tents.com A local shop is carrying their tents, and they appear to be nearly the same quality of Marmot and MH. Any info would be appreciated.

Looking for tents are we?....

One more to keep you up at night wondering about.

I've heard the Wechsel is a quality tent. I saw one set up on the trail last month and had a nice chat with the couple. They were pleased with it. But then it seems almost everybody is pleased with their tent after they get to know it.

What about Stevensons Warmlite, Steve?
Did you ever get it? How do you like it if you did?

That tent and I are inseparatable now. I've had it about 3 years, Lee. Wish I had a different color and don't use the barn door windows a lot, and if this ever wears out, walks away or I sell it, I'll get the 3 person (the 'heavy' 3# model). It has suffered deep snow, high winds, three day rains in Alaska, some humidity in NC and WVa and 4 people overnight in a storm at 12,000 - not a lot of room to shuffle the cards. Only tribulations so far has been to replace a section of pole due to a rock hitting it, and be sure that when you talk to Jack senior, he is on his meds or at least is in a good mood.

So what you been up to, Lee?

"On his meds?" That doesn't sound too reassuring...
They got a website?

Hiking and working, I wish it was in that order...
Just did an o'nighter up the Devil's slog trail in my Teva sandals 'cause I forgot my boots. I think I'll forget my boots more often...

A little skin on first couple of pages. They are naturists.

So long as you have your toe nails painted, your will still be in fashion.

Skin? Where? I was hoping to see some SKIN!!
Actually that first page ws in good taste, even though a little dissapointing.

I don't worry about that fashion crap. Wore my Smartwools.

I like those warmlites. A little to pricey for me, but who knows I might hit the lottery someday, or hit a fat jackpot at Pala Casino...

I also like the look of that Wechsel Pathfinder, and the Hilleberg Akto....

Crap!!! Too much good gear out there nowadays!!
