Since my latest tour plans include the Olympic Peninsula of Washington, my thoughts have swung towards a bigger tent, in case I'm in there for a while due to rain. I'm considering the Sierra Designs Vapor Light series, last year's models are on closeout at REI Outlet. They meet my desire to be freestanding, yet the weight isn't too bad. Since I'm 6'2", the 2 XL seems attractive for tall people. Any experience with these series of tents?
If you haven't pulled the trigger on your purchase, and you appear to be an REI member, check the REI Outlet Deal o' the Day. Just today they had a killer deal on a Kelty tent. But they only have tents on this super discount about four times a year.
