@dirtbag, Thanks for the visual. You’re right, with the wide pad its nearly wall to wall. Our Duo pad would shave a little off that width so it would certainly be doable. Still debating. The X-Mid 2P shows to come in at 39 oz with stuff sack and 6 stakes vs 34 oz less stakes and seam sealing for the Haven bundle. Stacks up very favorably considering the additional 6″ of inner width and generous vestibules on the X-Mid. I’m assuming a much larger footprint for the X-Mid though. Regardless, we would be dropping better than a full pound vs the Duo Outfitter and not have to mess with the curved ridge poles anymore.
I’m assuming @xRangerx is looking at solo use, strictly based on considering the SoLong as an option. If so, the Haven looks to me to be a better option.
Dan, can you shed any further light on specs for the upcoming DCF 2P? Also, of those I ran across this Spring that were using the 1P, the only thing I can recall anyone saying they would change would be increasing the size of the inner. Look forward to seeing it. I may just have to say bye to the Skyscape!Jul 6, 2021 at 12:16 pm #3721121Brett ABPL Member
Hmmm…just looked and the specs on the fly footprint of the X-Mid 2P show to be 102″ x 88″. Haven 114″ x 86″ (86″ lower edge vestibule to vestibule). I stand corrected…sort of.Jul 6, 2021 at 3:21 pm #3721141Paul SBPL Member
Thanks Dirtbag..yes, that is exactly the pads my wife and I use. X-lite womens, for my wife, and wide/regular Xlite for me.
