    I don't see a Trailstar only accessories. Can you provide a link to the Trailstar?

    If you got in it on top of the black ski run in the winter it'll go quickly. I've only ever tried it in an orange polythene bivi bag on a red run and can testify that it went fast. :)

    And all Rab's website tells me is it's £270, but they don't say how long it is.

    Looks like there's a flysheet draped over the pole and inner to me. It's got guylines attached to the outside of it.

    Chinese shelter - brand new. This is one that I have. The material is more rustly than most but pitches really nicely. Because I'd dwelled on the listing for a while I got an Ebay app message offering me one for £71.63 so I suspect if you offered £70 you'd get one including delivery to UK. There are various one and 2 person inners available for it.

    These look solid. (They should as copy of MSR/Golite designs).

    But the description is confusing.
    It mentions silicone coated polyester and nylon.
    Weights 875g total. But 570g min. That's a lot of weight for pegs n guys?

    I recently loaned mine to @Rog Tallbloke he weighed it at 606g. I suspect that included some guys and the stuff sack as it is too slippy to weigh not in the bag. So 570g isn't out of the question. It is currently in the post so I can't double check at the moment.

    The solid 2 person inner is 762g.

    Rog might chime in with his opinion of it.

    The fly is the usual Arixci/Knot offering with decent stitching and the double sided silcone coating on 20D fine nylon ripstop. Weight is good for the useable space on offer. Especially good for two if they both use poles. Double A frame setup makes this spacious, uncluttered and pretty bomber for windy nights, despite the steepish walls compared to a mid. It's a shame there isn't a zip at both ends.

    The inner is heavy, but roomy. There is a lozenge shaped 1p inner available, but they seem a bit pricey for the space on offer.
