Title: wanted to buy back - STEALTH tent, FOUND! 1 man, STILL NEED 2 man..
Post by: zebra - Flying Brick on February 22, 2017, 10:03:16 am
we are redeveloping the Boer tent (with his blessing), and whilst I have my own Stealth tent, I would like to BUY BACK another Stealth tent - p-r-e-f-e-r-a-b-l-y 2-man, but one-man could work, to allow us to redevelop on an existing tent that is NOT my own personal one!

So good time to 'name your price' (  ;)  ), or we will supply a redesigned tent at a sweetheart price to whoever supplies the older model back to us...
sa pic to jog your memory, color of tent not important...)
Cheers

Put my and HennieS name on the list for the first 2 available please.

My 2c tip:
(Getting older I tend to make use of guesthouses more and more but it happened a few times now that I got stuck in the middle of nowhere without a tent and then have to ride at night  :eek7: ) (Don't want to carry the normal tent, mattress etc - this is small enough to carry for emergencies only !)

Will the upgrade have a little overhang? That's been my biggest issue with the Stealth.

yes, overhang, likely DOUBLE-entry (zips both side), etc.

I was just reading about SWAG's yesterday and how they are making a comeback..... some nice ones on the market, especially the Australian variety :thumleft:

Would work great for bike trips  :biggrin:

so working away at the upgraded Stealth tent - MANY ideas, too many to list here, but zips both side, more overhang, tent made of WATERPROOF material, so TESTING if rain-fly not needed, when sky-port covered by waterproof flap, etc.
YKK zips, other improvements....
This one is an 'in between-er: wider than the old single, narrower than a full double tent, basically, rider PLUS luggage, and zip both sides, super easy to access luggage INSIDE OR outside the tent, etc.

More later, it is a long-term redevelopment with testing at every stage, just so you know...

Unknown, until we finish the changes. I-F the tent can be waterproof AND breathe (IF), then no second rain tarp needed, so less weight, but weight of fabric is heavier than the old 'feather-light' fabric...
So no news yet, but WILL post here when known!

The SWAG tent is nice but very heavy at 5 kg for a 1 man tent!

I like this one from Zebra, also a little bit bigger for luggage. I hope they can keep the weight and volume down!
