User Review: Macpac Minaret
Design: four season
Yes this is still a great tent. Intergral pitch allowing you to to slide a couple poles in bang in four pegs and go to bed while the others are out in the rain trying to get a fly over is even sweeter when the next morning with the rain continuing you can un-velcro the tent with the fly still up pack the dry inner and all your belongings before going out to drop the fly. Expect it to weigh more than a US style as it has a functional floor material and doesn't really need a groundsheet. After many mountains mine was just getting too thin (My other 2 macpac tents are still fine after about 20 years) but I didn't buy another (went Wlderness Equipment) as a couple of new features annoyed me. The vestibule only has only one zip to save weight where as the old version had 2 hence a choice of opening the vestibule on the lee side and cooking in bed. The hoops are now similar heights. Having one smaller while losing headroom gave you a quieter night as its shape held the wind better. Yes, I admit it still must be a great tent if my complains are getting this picky.
