Quote from: bdann on April 27, 2008, 01:31:03 AMI really like the looks of that Sarvis SL1, is it still produced? I don't see it on the Big Agnes website.I found this August 2005 review with a comment about the EVent fabric which may explain its disappearance:Quote from: http://www.backpacker.com/article/9125Tip: If you want a shelter made with eVent, get it now. The fabric doesn't meet fire-resistance standards enforced in some states, and eVent will not be available in 2006 shelters.

I think I really like the REI Taj 3....oh so many tents....so little time....
I don't have the cash to drop on a $400 tent
I tossed out the stakes that come with and replaced them with 10 inch nail pegs.With the nail pegs I need a hand sledge to drive them into just about anything and a pry bar to pull them out.So far we've used the tent in the Basin through a night that brought thunderstorms and heavy winds (40 mph gusts) and in BBRSP for 2 nights during sustained 30 mph winds with 50 mph gusts. The tent doesn't budge. In fact the tent is almost silent in these types winds.Just thought I'd throw this out there and let you all know this is a great buy and works well in the conditions BB can deliver.
For basic car camping, I think this tent from L.L. Bean looks pretty nice. Has a main room, and a 'porch'..... http://www.llbean.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay?page=king-pine-dome-tent&categoryId=53082&storeId=1&catalogId=1&langId=-1&parentCategory=500106&cat4=1096&shop_method=pp&feat=500106-tn&np=Y
This is a Moutainsmith Satellite one man bivy style tent I gave my brother for his birthday last year
....I'm posting all these pics of tents to keep Homero happy...
O.K. this is turning in to a cult thing, of some sort?...last i want to have is to meet somebody from the board, and all of a sudden they start to go: We're not worthy...we're not worthy...get the idea?. .
