Re: Freestanding tents

Ah yeah so they have evolved it, I only thought they did it in red/silver now but it appears they also have a green one (not sure if that is a newer version one though). The carbon reflex 2 looks quite a good tent, haven't read any substantial reviews on it though.

Re: Freestanding tents

Thanks for the advice guys. I'm looking at the MSR hubba hubba hence my question, just need to make my mind up quickly before they vanish. Seems stupid MSR discontinued the tent.

Freestanding tents

Was wondering people's thoughts on whether freestanding should be a necessity when looking for tents for a long-term tour.
