    It did last time it was required to. It’s not seen a lot of use so not fully tested in all conditions.

    maybe I think I was looking to compare it to the vessel (tent) I’m lending @DidSurfNowSki

    I’ve had the tarp tent in a Tassie downpour and it was fine, pitches inside out as well, he just needs to come and practice pitching the thing.

    I rate the tarp tent for the size to weight, at 220by 135 plus vestibules it’s big for a 2 person and weighs about 1200g not bad for a fly plus inner. The strat 2 has a great design as well, when you open the side flap their is still a great vestibule section to stand you pack up in and tuck stuff away and as each side has a vestibule we get a his and hers.

    I saw a cool budget tent today. Was a Zempire Atmos.

    Had never heard of Zempire before. Their website seems to have a nice range.

    Anyone heard of or used them before?

    The atmos with a footprint looks like a good bikepack to hut tent that can handle bad weather days. At $300 it seems like a good price/performance ratio.

    It looks a lot like my MSR Accent, which has a horizontal crossmember that extends to the ground - where the fly open out to.
    This goes under the crossed over (not a hub) main frame as support for snow loading, a genuine 4 season tent, 1620g and $1000.
