Has anyone used the US Army dome tent? According to the website I saw it on:
"The tent is made to military specifications requiring that the it be operable from -25 degrees to 120 degrees F and withstand 65 MPH wind gusts as well as to repel wind driven rain at two inches per hour with 20 MPH wind. The required snow load is 4 lbs per square foot. The tent features a lightweight rip-stop nylon Woodland Camo body that is breathable to reduce condensation, rustproof zippers, front and rear zippered doors with seperate zippered mesh insect screens, a urethane coated waterproof floor, mesh storage pockets on each side wall, an upper gear loft, 24 aluminum tent stakes, component stuff bags and additional reinforcement at all stress points. There's also a snow tunnel opening that can be sealed off or used to interconnect with another tent. The tent includes a two fly system; the Woodland Camo fly completely covers the tent all the way to the ground for weatherproofing and added warmth and has the capability of creating an additional 30 square feet of vestibule area for extra gear storage that is held in place by 3 pole sections, while the Arctic white snow fly offers full camo coverage in snow territory. The tent measures 7'8" x 7'8" with a 51" center height, weight is 20 lbs."
Sounds pretty nice but a used one at $800 is ridiculous. Anyone know why they are so expensive?
