Two-man tunnel tents, UL silnylon (or Si/PU), UL carbon fiber poles, single
(summer) and double skin (winter) versions, very thoroughly tested in the
field over the last 6 - 10 years. Weights will depend on the actual fabric
used, but <1.2 kg for the summer tent and ~1.5 kg for the winter tent.
The tents themselves are shown on the Bushwalking FAQ web site at
and have featured in many articles at www.backpackinglight.com, where I am
Senior Editor for Technology.
There will also be discussion at www.backpackinglight.com in the Forum chat
area, in the Gear channel. Try the 'The CAFFIN tent comes' stream. Currently
some discussion about the groundsheet dimensions.
You could also read the 'Survey and Tutorial on Tunnel Tents' which
triggered Easton's interest.
and go on to Part 2 and a stack of mini-reviews.
