I am looking at possibly getting a new tent for the wife and I and wanted to get your thoughts. Most of my trips are solo (I use a Cuben Duomid) so it wont get used a lot, so I don’t think I want to spend $600 on a Duplex. I am leaning toward the TT Statospire 2 but there some others in the mix
Tarptent Statospire 2
SMD Haven + Net Tent
SMD Lunar Duo
GG The Two
This will be used in the Southern Appalachians and an occasional trip out west. How do the above compare in ease of set up and storm worthiness (no snow)? I’m sure nobody has experience with all of them, but I am sure we have people here that have used more than one of these. Are there any others I should consider?
What are your opinions?Nov 23, 2017 at 4:53 pm #3503674

I would suggest adding the Yama Mountain Gear Swiftline into the mix.Nov 23, 2017 at 9:46 pm #3503714

Highly biased opinion, but I think that the SS2 has a better wind shedding shape :
as for setting it up , I find it VERY easy to do , for some it’s almost impossible.
(I should fly in for a live demo….)

I really like my Stratospire 2. I was debating between the same tents. I chose the Tarptent after reading some of Henry’s comments about how he designed this tent. After sitting through some windy and wet Sierra thunderstorms this year, I think I made the right choice.
Setting it up is very intuitive. The directions are well written.Nov 24, 2017 at 3:18 am #3503757
