This is a very good, lightweight tent. Mine is Forest Green not Aspen Yellow like the one below. It comes in three parts, the fly, the bug-netted floor and the floor without the netting (shown at bottom) it weighs 2 lbs 7 oz for the fly, 1 lb 12 oz for the bug-netting section and 15 oz for the floor section or 4.125 lbs total. The stake ties on the fly have reflective strips, there are two bug-netted vents on the front and back top of the fly which help prevent condensation. The tent use's one shock-corded pole in the middle (can be substituted with a hiking pole) and has a loop on the outside top to sling it to a limb above for more space inside. Its a hexagon shape at 8 feet at width. Considered a two person tent, but will sleep three if the tent is tied to a limb above instead of the pole.

I use the fly and floor section alone during non-bug seasons. The floor alone during non-rain or snow conditions as a staked out ground sheet to sleep on, or the bug-netted section when flies and mosquitos are a problem but no rain. The rainfly is considered a three season tent.

I have used it in Alaska, Utah, Arizona and Wyoming during all the seasons. It has no tears,holes and its like new condition. The three parts together are currently $525 from www.golite.com , I want $200 plus shipping.

I'd rather not sell them separately as it would'nt work for me in bug season. I am offering it beacuse I am buying another tent and am trying to get 2/3 the cost of the new tent back.

Okay Chris,

I just sat up an Paypal account. How does this go, I have never used Paypal? Where in the U.K. am I sending the tent so I know what to tell the postal service to get the estimated postage.

As soon as I know the address there I will contact the post office here to get the correct postage.

I just sent an email with my phone number if youwan to call me about your postal address?

Gary

Sorry for the hassle, Gary, i now cant get my computer to type in anything other than a straight line, send your phone number to my email address and i will call you, or my wife will be home in an hour and she will be able to figure it out. Im a computer novice!! I asked paypal and they said all i have to do is send the money to you email address and then you just press alink and it then goes in to your paypal account. We will succeed!! Chris.

I just emailed my phone number, what time is it in England where you are? Its 2:20 pm on Monday here in Arizona, we dont use daylight savings time in Arizona so the time remains the same year round, while all other states change theirs. But the Navajo's do observe D.L.S.T guess they just had to be different! As the Hopis who's reservation is in the middle of the Navajo's Res are on AZ time.
