User Review: Black Diamond Megamid
Design: Minimalist-Floorless Tent
Ease of Setup: Easy
Weight: Under 4lbs
Price Paid: $120
I bought my Mega in the Spring/Summer of 2000 directly from BD on a 'closeout' special. At the time, I knew nothing about their tents...and this was before they came to be associated with Bibler.
It was either this one or a Kiva (Mtn Hardwear), and the Kiva (brand-new at the time, as I recall) was about twice as expensive. It was a 'gamble' that definitely paid off.
Admittedly, I haven't tested the thing in winter conditions. But no troubles for 3-season minimalist trekking! It's come in very handy when visiting Pismo Beach in California, and it's been used a lot as a temporary shade cover on those family/friends beach outings.
It also works well if you're looking for a bike trek companion. I've used it for shelter for 2 bikes while we stayed in our other tent, but I think you might even be able to fit 2 bikes/2 campers into that tent if you really wanted to.
Has the Megamid been fazed out for the MegaLite now? Maybe so...but if you can find an existing Megamid out there, I highly recommend it.
