anyone out there have a macpac microlight?.
is it poss for someone over 6ft to sit up/lay down in em ok?.
im 6'2 and could'nt do that in my akto, so it went.
been looking for a rough weather replacement ever since!.
currently using a golite shangri-la 1, which i like.
its long enough, and tall enough, but the midge net inner is too cool for anything below freezing.
any advice welcome!!.
the centre string that gives the pole its shape has to a certain length (which i cant remember)to give max head height. i wouldn't be surprised if half the people who use one get the length wrong and end up with a shallower curve.
of course mr wick compared to your sl3 it'll seem rather poky.......
I love my Macpac Microlight.
At 6' 2" you'll fit, but there won't be much room to spare. It's a great width. I normally store my pack, boots etc beside me.
Height might be a problem. Depending on your torso length, I'd imagine your head will be pretty close to the top. Mine brushes the top about a 1/3 of the distance from from the apex (I'm 5' 10").
It's very compact, so geting in and out is always interesting. Fantastic porch size.
It's incredibly warm. A little green house.
Morton Moschild - I have the green/grey one. I don't know its difference in weight/size to the old one.
yes monty, i was considering getting someone like ookworks to make me a fabric inner for my golite.
i really do get on with it.
im also toying with the idea of using two poles to run down either side of the shelter, as i dont always see the need to use trekking poles when im out walking.
my thinking is that without the upright poles out of the way, the space at the rear of the shelter could also be used, and a really long inner could be made to fit it.
im guessing it would swallow a big winter bag with ease with these mods, and would make a cracking winter shelter.
i do have quite a long torso, maybe thats why i never got on wi the akto?.
