The eternal quandary.
I was in Paddy Pallin today, looking for a tent for a 4 day trip in November.
I had a look at the Hornet 2P tent. Apart from the fact that it isn’t properly freestanding, I was surprised by the different feel of the material compared to the Dagger 2P they had already set up.
I know there’s always a tradeoff when it comes to ultralight gear - but will this thing actually last? Is it worth having an ultralight base if you then need a footprint?
According to the specs, the Hornet has 20D PeU Nylon Ripstop (1200mm) on the floor, while the Dagger has 0D PU Nylon Ripstop (3000mm).
