First post – selling a Big Sky Chinook 2POct 10, 2017 at 2:15 am #3495781
I’m selling my Big Sky Chinook 2P tent. I purchased it new from Big Sky in April 2015. It has been one of my favorite tents and is very well made – I’m only selling it because I sewed up my own dome tent and don’t use this one much any more.
The poles have been stored un-collapsed (to help preserve the shock-cord elasticity) and the tent has been stored hanging in a closet in a smoke-free home. Some details:
Condition: good. Tent has seen about 30-35 nights of use. It has some faint dirt spots throughout and some dog hair, but everything is in good, working condition (no tears, rips, or holes). There are 2 snags/runs in the mesh I found when setting it up – see below pictures for details.
Outer fabric: Supr-Sil UL fabric (gray)
Inner tent: Supr-Sil floor with mesh
Main Poles: “ultralight” aluminum
Optional crossing pole: “4-season” aluminum (I used this pole once for a test setup when I got the tent, and haven’t used it since. I found this pole difficult to use and I don’t think the extra support is necessary)
Weights (as measured on my scale):
Tent body and fly: 35.1 oz
Main aluminum poles: 11.0 oz
Optional aluminum crossing pole: 7.7 oz
Pole repair sleeve: 0.3 oz
Included in this sale: tent, aluminum main poles, aluminum crossing pole, and pole repair sleeve (no stuff sack or stakes – I did not them from Big Sky)
Here is my mini review of the tent: https://backpackinglight.com/forums/topic/102870/
A note on poles: I also have the main carbon fiber poles for this tent. You can buy the carbon fiber poles instead of the aluminum poles for an additional $50 (I need to keep one set of poles for my MYOG tent). The carbon fiber poles are 3oz lighter but a little less strong in the wind – suitable for most 3-season conditions but not extreme weather. I do not know how they would work with the aluminum crossing pole.
I’m asking $320 shipped CONUS. Please PM me with any questions.
This an example of the faint dirt spots on the tent:
These are the snags/runs I found in the mesh:
The inner tent pitches with the fly, but you can roll back the vestibule doors on each side for some good views and cross-ventilation:
You can unzip the vestibule from the top for additional venting options:
