Thanks for the advice guys. I once had a TNF fortress 33 "no i dont have a addiction to TNF tents, i have only had 3". However, it is a past tense. We were out in the snow line, In the cairngorms "Beinn Behrac type area". We pitched as per norm, however the wind got seriously going and knackered the tent. After that we made a desicion to get a Geo. We have had it in iceland, on a Vatnajokull glacier, where it remained strong in the worst weather i have every camped out in.
Im looking at the 3 pole design, however my main worries is seriosuly high winds, or, In heavy snow fall.
Peter, the tent is for 2 of us, as we used to be a 3 man team. However, fully geodesic is prefferable, as it will be used in the snowline alot. Normal stomping grounds are Norway, Alps and scottish winter.
I have experience of Hilleberg gear, being partly from that neck of the woods. Ace tents, I had a Akto for a while.
Thanks for the Lightwave direction, we shall have a shufti at that!
Weight is a key factor, as it means i can liughten my pack up/ extend the winter trip away.
