Haha no.Without even being used, yet? Ugh...
Did you pick the pack up by the pouch or something?
obviously not exactly the same use time/reasons as the Xtherm, but how does it compare to the Xtherm?
Mine feel the need to inspect all new tent purchases, including tunneling under all tents and groundsheets. Any new cardboard box arrivals are also a must.
Hope it works well for you. I have the one person version (Notch Li) and am pretty pleased with it. Very small inside, but I wanted light instead of spacious. Tarptent designs just seem very well thought out to me, and I really appreciate how well integrated the bug nests are. Used my Notch in Alaska for two weeks last year and it was great.
I've never tried to set mine up without the fly, but if you tie all the doors open there is a lot of view to be had.
That is so good to hear! I cannot wait to give it a go. I have just always liked the Tarptent quality and customer service, just didn't love the weight or what I consider SLIGHTLY strenuous pitches haha
I just find a lot of joy when I wake up throughout the night and I open my eyes and there are so many stars above me!
I love the Stratospire Li. Pricey, but it is more secure in rough weather than any tent I've ever used - even tents that weigh more than 5x as much. I mostly reserve mine for trips where I need that security though. If using it solo, the extra space is quite a luxury when you're trapped inside for extended periods, too.Tarptent StratoSpire Li came back into stock like...10 minutes ago and I snatched one! Woot woot! This will be my first Dyneema tent and my first trekking pole tent. Excited to test it out for my trip in September. I am so excited that it is double wall! Which is why I would have never bought Zpacks. I like to sleep without my fly whenever I can!

That said, my Zpacks Plexamid is my "go to" for quick trips or more predictable weather.
Don’t feel odd because you like double walled tents. I feel like after what might be a miserable day hiking due to weather and/or mosquitoes, etc. you need a refuge to escape and get a good nights sleep.Oh yay! More good feedback! They shipped it today!
For any trip, I use a 2 person tent and I like double wall, maybe excessive, but just my preference
This is what I hope to use going forward allll the time and for my PCT thru hike next year. Trims off over a pound from my normal tent, the Big Agnes Tigerwall. Yay!
Haha thanks! I also seem to have some sort of illusion of more safety if the tent is larger. I don't leave the fly off on my solo trips because I need that extra layer of false security hehe!Don’t feel odd because you like double walled tents.

It'll get so much faster.It came, it came!! Couldn't wait till morning haha. It would be too hot anyways LOL It definitely took me a loooong time to put this thing up haha. I gotta practice.
