My wife and I want a truly durable two person tent, motorcycling. Weight is ZERO issue. I prefer heavy and well made. Spring, summer and fall. Temps over night in late fall can hit freezing though not commonly. We live in Connecticut, we ride the northeast. No we dont do the northern states in late fall.
I kinda like the REI half dome, also Eureka Combat debt as well. My fear is I get some nifty nylon thing and the seams pop after a couple years or 5. I never see the combat rent reviewed professionally. Makes me think its not as good as the REI.
Terrain is often grass or soft ground.
Just want a good TOUGH 2 person tent.weight again is not an issue.
