Nice being ahead for once. But in Sweden it looks normal.Oct 5, 2017 at 12:37 pm #3494952
The software is using Greenwich Mean Time.
Ah…Thanks Brad. That’s all well and good…but it is a change. It used to display MST/MDT.
Just sayin’Oct 5, 2017 at 12:56 pm #3494953
Ideally, it would be stored in the database as GMT, but a user’s profile would indicate the user’s own time zone and the software would do the math when the time is displayed.Oct 5, 2017 at 6:27 pm #3495027

There is a Bug Report on the time issue thing.Oct 5, 2017 at 10:21 pm #3495070
Wow, whoa, it’s been a year already?
Yep, I’m downright giddy about the prospects of a thorough review!Oct 5, 2017 at 10:47 pm #3495077

Lots of info in this thread to distill Bob. Might take awhile, lol.Oct 15, 2017 at 8:45 pm #3496913
My Duplex arrived last week. I set it up in the yard once and then used it at a Boy Scout Camporee this weekend.
First impression is quite good. I used the “new” Zpacks setup method and loosely staked the 4 corners. Then I did the poles and finally the sides. This worked well. I fiddled a little with the stakes to get it looking good.
I’m 6’3″ and average build. I fit well with adequate headroom. Since we were car camping, I had more stuff than usual, but had room for everything inside the tent.
We arrived in a light mist, which ended a couple of hours later. I left 1 door open and wondered if I should leave an opposing door open. In the morning, everything was damp outside, even stuff put out after the rain stopped. The walls of the tent had condensation, but nothing dripped on the floor or even rolled down the walls.
I got the camo version since I’m an assistant scoutmaster and wanted the greater privacy.Nov 5, 2017 at 7:28 pm #3500398

Greetings to you all.
I wasn’t sure if it’s ok posting on a thread started one year ago, but given the recent activity and that the thread I’ve started didn’t get me the clarity I need, I’ll ask here :)
I really like the duplex Camo.
But I’m a cold sleeper and I’m kind of worried for the draught which the all Mesh doors can mean in cold weather.
I am improving my sleeping gear and maybe that’s enough to have no problem with the draught, but given the economical effort of buying this tent I still would like to hear your thoughts before opening the wallet.
It may be useful for the review too, as I didn’t find much about it in these 4 pages.
Could you please give some feedback about your experience with the draught in the duplex in cold weather, how problematic you’ve found it, what do you do to resist the cold wind entering, etc?
Thanks!Nov 5, 2017 at 7:46 pm #3500400
I’ve used it at 7°F and windy, 20-30 mph.
I had it pitched very low but still it was darn nippy and breezy inside. Brrrr…. glad I had my dog to warm me up.Nov 5, 2017 at 8:35 pm #3500402
Since you say you are a cold sleeper, regardless of how it is pitched, I think there is a good chance would not be particularly happy in the the Duplex in cold windy conditions. As others have said, clever campsite selection is key to extending the operating range of the Duplex.
Personally, I have no problems with it. I have been down to about 10F with a 5 mph wind w/occasional gusts. 10F quilt, Cap4 top and bottom, down socks, down puffy draped over my torso under the quilt with a cap4 balaclava over a MH Windstopper microfleece beanie…no dog :)
Hope any of that helps.Nov 7, 2017 at 4:13 am #3500743

I met two different groups of people this summer who opted for a triplex as the additional weight is only 3 oz. for an increase of 15″ in width. They spoke enthusiastically about the tent.
