It’s finally here! (Not that I really had to wait too long…)
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I place a preorder for the new Yama Mountain Gear Cirriform SW Tent, and today it showed up on my doorstep! Now, I was actually supposed to be packing for a hike this weekend, but when the mail lady knocked on my door, I knew that I was going to have to take a minute, open it, set it up and check it out… Plus, I figured if I was going through all of that trouble, I may as well go ahead and do some video to show it to the rest of you!
So, this is Gen’s newest addition to the Yama Mountain Gear’s site. This is a fully enclosed shelter, which uses a 0.8 oz/sqyd cuben fiber on the canopy, and 30D silnylon on the floor. I liked this idea since as I understand it, cuben fiber has a low tolerance to abrasion, however, I have never had any issues with any of my cuben fiber. Either way though, I liked the idea of using silnylon as the floor. Also, this tent is based on the A-Frame set-up, which I am also just fine with. I don’t mind crawling in and out of the front of the tent, and find that they have plenty of interior room for my needs. Not to mention, it is easy enough to set up.
Anyway, I don’t have time to get into a lot of details right now, and this post and video is not about that, but instead, just simply showing off my new, awesome tent! I did climb inside the tent and there is plenty of room. Even with my large size NeoAir XLite, there is plenty of room, but I will say, I forgot how slippery silnylon floors can be…
Anyway, I gotta go and finish packing for my trip this weekend, so I hope that you enjoy the video.
Thanks for stopping by,
