information on the peapod one man please.
Hugh, it was high praise!
I think the Gore-Tex Peapod went into production but my memory is a little fuzzy! Gore-tex works fine for tents in dry climates - I used a Gore-Tex Phreerunner (from Phoenix, set up by two ex-Ultimate people and Ultimate's successor in terms of tents) successfully in places like the Pyrenees but had severe condensation problems in the UK.
The Tramp was an excellent tent - I used one for 10 weeks on a Land's End to John O'Groats walk thirty years ago. It wore out sometime in the 1980s though - the flysheet fabric becoming stiff and brittle and starting to tear, as happened with PU coated nylon back then.
I also had "The Tent" - it collapsed at heavy snow on the campsite in Edale! I woke in the morning to find my feet buried under broken poles, fabric and snow. Lucky it wasn't the other end .....
I'm still waiting for someone to make a good double-skin tent that pitches with trekking poles. Mountain Equipment's AR models are the best so far.
I only have transparencies of the Tramp - and no means of turning them digital. (And it might take me hours to find them!)
There was a two-person Peapod and a bigger Tramp, the Tramp 2. Another Ultimate tent I had was the Phaser Dome, a good three-pole two-person tent.
