Re: Please Help me choose...
- Thanks to everyone for their comments.
I already placed the order, so my final decission was the Explorer
Deluxe Asym with the snake skins and an aditional hex fly. That way on
stormy days I can just switch the fly before I head out. And when the
Hex is not needed I can enclose the whole thing inside the snakeskins.
Lets hope I made the right decission instead of getting a regular
solor tent...I'll keep you updated once I get it.
