I'm more than happy to investigate if you ever hear of such disgraceful carrying on.
I can see a T zip would be an advantage... the standard inner has a half opening... Mmmm
Is it just backpackinglight that sells these in the U.K.?
As far as I know yes.
Ta very much.
Right... so... what else?
Just buy the outer from backpackinglight. Get a green one (the brown looks like Birds Angel Delight chocolate flavour to me). Then an AliExpress inner of your choice, which will save you 200-250g. Then swap out the supplied (2mm) cord at the guying points for 3mm polypropylene cord - this is important.
Seam seal if that's your thing - I've never bothered.
Joking aside, my respect for this tent grows with every outing.
TBH I found a single bathtub inner (from and SL1) enough for my Hex / SL3. So I was hoping to purchase a fly only and perhaps just add an inner of choice. Unfortunately backpackinglight’s site says they don’t have any ‘fly only’ available...
I’ll give them a call.
The AliExpress jobbies- are they from China?
They should have the fly only option back in stock before long.
AliExpress is the Chinese Amazon, so yes, pretty much everything there is from China. I have both the solid and mesh versions of the 3F UL T-zip single inner, and currently have a new Asta inner on order which, if it lives up to expectations, will fit even better.
This is the inner I am waiting on delivery from Ali express ....
It's a few grams heavier than the @Diddi has but I am hoping having the use of the dead corner will pay off.
￡33.14 | ASTA xinxue 1 person/ 2 person inner 216*70*110 cm/216*135*120 cm summer inner https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/DnuQA4s
Mine is the 1 person version but I am tempted to get the 2 p aswell when I get paid
Really wish I would stop finding these things...
Big question is...... did you pull the trigger last night????
No, I’m dithering about getting fly only. I’ve been on AliExpress looking the other inners. I’ll buy the whole shebang, inner an’ all and see how it goes.
I wouldn't buy a Hexpeak inner - im hoping 3F are going to make one this year, t-door, lighter, solid walls.
Those asta hex's with the double doors do not look too bad. Not heard anyone say the original asta mid is rubbish, I'm using my khufu clone one tomorrow for 4 nights
ASTAGEAR finst snow 2 side 20D silnylon ultralight ASTA pyramid outdoor 1/2 person 2 layer 3 seasons camping tent
That looks a nice bit of kit... hmmm..
I like the fact it has double doors. That would clear the condensation in the morning.
Iv actually just come across the 2/3 version model....
I don't need another tent!
I don't need another tent!
I don't need..........
Stop talking about hexpeaks!
Don’t you like them?
I would have ordered today but I won’t be in for the delivery... next week I will
I think Taz wishes she never sold hers
Wish I hadn’t sold my SL3 ... mind you, they leak!
Yes and no.
I found it tricky to manoeuvre around the pole at times and the inner was a faff.
But its a really nice tent in many ways.
Look at this for the SL3 - you and Sheba could fit in that with room to spare
The makers should be making a one man version soon, around 400g with t-doors.
Ta very much ...
It’s bleddy Petra (and well you know it)
Is there a slottly converter thing for Leki carbon flicklocks?
Ya mean one of these
Nope, maybe I’m confused.... that doesn’t fit a carbon flicklock does it?
I dunno maybe I'm confused ... I dont use poles for mine I use one of these
