Anyone here has experience with this tent? I'm looking to get a lightweight tent for those long 3 season trips for me and my wife, that one seems great, they provide an alternative for tracking poles in case I want to go without them which are just 5 oz for the pair. They also have one called the Double Rainbow which doesn't use the poles but is less spacious.
Some concerns I have are:
1. I use a long sleeping bag, top to bottom its 87 inches, that thing is 86 inches, some tent manufacturers like to give measurements of a completely stretched out, coming right from the furthest edges they can find in the interior, which realistically gets several inches shorter when you pitch the tent.
2. I believe (could be wrong) that the tent is made of silicone coated nylon, how does that behave under windy storms?
Some things I like about this tent is that it can be pitched either as a tarp or just the interior mesh living space. They can stay clipped together, so you can pitch the whole tent in the rain without getting the inside wet. The vestibules can be opened in the rain so you can make a meal there or vent out the tent in case it rains for days. The tent is super light with big living space and has two entrances, can't ask for too much more for a warm weather tent, Anyone can pick some negatives I should be aware about or something I should consider before I pull the trigger on this baby?
