    Keep in mind BA is easy to get "pro deals" on -- just being a member of AAC is enough.

    RIP my Nightwatch CD. Was my all purpose tent from 11th through middle of grad school. Think I scored it on STP or REI Outlet. Finally died when careless asshole friend of friend borrowed it and stored it wet. So mildewy I gave up and tossed it and demanded $150 in cash. Was worth more in terms of utility, but didn't feel I could ask for more.

    This is good information. Wasn't aware of that.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    I've been using the Copper Spur 4 for about 3 years and it ticks all the boxes for my family of 4 (2 younger kids) but the it's on it's last legs with multiple tears on the fly and the storage bag is shredded. Great tent, short life...

    Given the weight for a 4P and materials needed to hit that weight, not super surprising. Especially with kids beating on it.

    Light. Durable. Cheap. Choose one. Adage usually proves true.

    On that note, I still think itís a shame what MSR did to the Moss tents. They were known for, and their reputation was based on, their highly durable fabrics/materials, at the cost of weight and price. That is no longer the case.

    Iíve been using a my trail co pyramid4. They used to be golite... tons of room for the weight of the tent. Easy to set up. Bring a tarp and put your stuff outside. Works well in the wind and rain. Wouldnít use it in the winter with snow however. It can also be used without the nest if youíre looking to get really light.
