Looks like a knock off of Sierra Designs High Route 1 / Tarptent StratoSpire 1 / Yama Mountain Gear Swiftline 1.
It's price range is closer to the High Route 1 which is a bit bigger at 90" x 30" for the inner tent at 18.8 sq/ft weights 37oz which is kind of heavy IMO.
versus 86.5" length x 28.6" for the inner tent at 16.2 sq/ft. weights 27.9oz for this one.
You can get very nice guyline for like $12-$15/50ft from zpacks or Lawson equipment (among many others...theirs are the nicest I’ve used).The lack of guylines would be a deal-breaker for me. There are more times than I can count where I've set my tent up in a perfect place (flat, sheltered etc) only to find that my stakes won't go in the ground all the way because of a rock or tree root. Thankfully guylines mean you can adjust where you put your stakes.
True, IF guylines would work for a tent like this. I would need to see it first before I invested.You can get very nice guyline for like $12-$15/50ft from zpacks or Lawson equipment (among many others...theirs are the nicest I’ve used).
And agreed on the necessity...I don’t even carry stakes anymore for most trips (almost all canyon/desert stuff). Nice long guys and trucker hitch to natural anchors.
