I've seen the Vaude Ultralite 1 and I'm tempted to buy as I've been impressed with my present 2 man Vaude Spider . As Jeannie says it's very much a 1 man tent but bare in mind that the there is also an Ultralite version 2 man tent which is wider than the model on show at the NEC this weekend . I will look forward to reviews of this tent before I splash the cash in the next few weeks as I'm still edging towards the Hilleberg Atko .
John Have you any threads I can use to have a look at the mountain wing , I'm 6'3" and I like the idea of sitting up in a backpacking tent . The tent presently at no.1 in my present search for a tent under 2 kg is the the Hilleberg Atko weighing in at 1.5 kg and with a great length . I think at 90 cm high it's just about okay for me to sit up in .
Has anybody used one of these ? I have just got one as a prezzy and wondered if you have used them . I am always been keen to reduce pack weight but this does bring a bit of comfort to the journey so I stuck my thermarest in , tried it out in the front room and I'm impressed . I'll find out what it's like in the field in the next few weeks on my first backpack of the year . Kev
Joy , Just thought I'd let you know that I'm 6'3" and the arms on my Llotse jacket are long , even for me . However , after years of complaining of clothes being too short for us big un's I'm happy with the overall fit , plus it's a great piece of kit . Kev
I've had the ME Lhotse for about a year now and my advise would be to go out and buy it ! I use mine for backpacking and providing you layer properly the breathability even when working hard is superb . Used mine in 4 days of heavy rain in the dales last October without any problems . I've seen some articles complaining about only having pockets at chest height , but when wearing a rucsac any other pockets would be out of commission . It is an expensive jacket at £240 , but hunt around for bargains . I got mine at Mountain Magic in Glossop for significantly less .
