    Tarptent Double Rainbow Li - thoughts?

    I am loving the idea of this tent but would like to hear other people's thoughts on it (as well as from users of the regular DR).
    I have had a Duplex I loved and sold to buy the Stratospire Li which...

    In the UK they use the term "wild camp or "wild campsite", which to me is just camping in the way you describe it...or the legal terminology, "dispersed" camping. It is used for any camp site not in...

    The Medium Aura has a belt that barely goes short enough for my petite frame, but I made it work. The small just wasn't comfortable. Sometimes it's good to be a woman...those hips sure do some in...

    I'm 5'5 and have a 19" torso. I use the medium Osprey (Aura and Exos) and it fits great, although I do tend to prefer a slightly longer pack fit due to back issues...I don't like any weight on the...

    Seems like they'd be good for flat or moderately hilly walking but that handle angle might be detrimental to using them for climbs and descents. Just a thought although no real experience of them.

    I'm a huge fan of DCF and that certainly wasn't an issue...it was the lack of simplicity in the set-up, and to a lesser extent, the take down of the SS Li. I used to be able to get my Duplex up in...

    It was a good tent, spacious but I found the interior sagged more than I liked and I found it a pain to put up and put away. I did a full "first impressions" review on my blog:

    Oh, and if you don't go the DIY route, the Osprey Talon 33 would be a good, smaller option. I use mine mostly for day hikes but could see it being usable for 2-3 nights backpacking in late spring/...

    You can buy what we call methylated spirits in Europe and probably in Turkey. It's what people use for alcohol stoves over here in the UK.

    I smarted out with a Walmart travel pillow. Loved that thing. I now use a Thermarest compressible pillow. Same weight and size but packs smaller. Worth carrying.

    Tempting but I'm now in the UK so shipping might be a little expensive. I got a hole in my SS Li along the edge (fixed with DCF tape of course). PM me if you would still be interested.
