I am retiring my early/mid 90's North Face arches tent. It has been used and abused since I bought it new in 94 - it even made it through a pretty nasty tornado about 10 years ago.
Here is what I am wanting in a new tent.
1. Two person/ultralight tent (hopefully around or under 4 lbs.) - I am 6'4, and prefer to keep some of my gear in the tent.
2. Free Standing (current tent is not).
I am leaning toward the Big Agnes FLy creek - but I am a little concerned about length, and how "free standing" it really is (it appears it still requires some staking.
Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks
