First time I've seen the MLD camo properly
Not seen these before
Nice find. A unique take on the mid design.
Like it. ( Apart from colour - which looks negotiable)
And the other larger shelter. Impressive wind resistance in the video. ( Tent section).
More temptation. However I've been told no more tents or packs so I can use that as an excuse.
Quite like it, wish it had a seam running from the apex to each of the three rear pegging points though
I like it, I'm not sure if those ends look a bit low though, a chance of bag rubbing with a thicker mat? 3.2m long should be plenty though?
Mmmm the big one looks nice. Good weight for two given that my Hex and one-person inner comes in at around the same.
Might not be as tight as it looks - they possibly seem to be implying that the guy in the pic is 6'4"?
That's the pic that got me wondering, I can't tell if he's on a mat or not, I can see polycryo but he looks quite low, the grass is long though
if you look at pic 6 of 11 there looks like loads of room at each end of the mat?
Quite a 'deep' catenary cut ? ……. looks like the lower tent sides come quite close to ground = lot unuseable space.
Their 3p one looks Purdy... At that price and weight, it could be a silver tip killer???
That looks nice. Specs and price are pretty good too.
Plenty of colours available according to Tipik's Facebook page though I guess that selection is across all their products...
The following graphic of measured heights at 10 cm intervals from the pole is rather useful.
And for the metrically challenged...
Saw that and I'm very curious as to what they're doing.
Likewise, I notice he specifically says "lightest tent", do they regard the Hexamid as a tent?
If so, I'd argue they've got to get below 316g (Keith Foskett's Hexamid review), rather than their currently quoted 437g. Keith's weight does however leave out a groundsheet and cordage.
A "tent" under 300-400g sounds rather interesting, but might be stupid-light for many uses.
It will be too short like all the others, for me.
Will Wood's latest video (load out for the Overland Track) has film of the new Zpacks tent in it. It's sort of an evolution/ mutation of the Hexamid.
For the lazy amongst us
I'm convinced that the wind direction never changes much during the night in America.
I've never been to the states, but I'm sure my impression of the weather is biased by when people choose to take photos for their blogs etc, which tends to be on still days with blue Sky's.
Its always lovely......
Anyone else reacted to the amount of pegs needed to pin that thing down?
