User Review: Moonstone Nada Tent
Design: bivy sack
Ease of Setup: simple
Weight: under 2lbs
Price Paid: $119 at REI Outlet
Having been bitten by the lightweight bug, I have been upgrading my old equipment. My search for a bivy sack was a long one. I saw the nada tent at rei outlet and decided to give it a go. Here is what I think:
Although the quality of the nada tent was good the design leaves much to be desired. the poles are fiberglass, thinner than a pencil and seem cheap. The insert sleeves on them came off right away. The hood design is good, except you can't stake the thing down and it keeps falling into your face. Also the top entry is a real pain. I sent it back two days later.
If you are a serious ounce counter and can live with the design flaws, then this is the bivy for you. I sprung for the TNF soloist. Much better design.
