That tent on pic 3, how do they hold in weather (especially hot and wet weather?)
They seem to be quite good "hiking sized" tents.. And are they suitable for forrest floors (with little twigs, branches, small stones etc)


Currently I don't do camping (actually háte it..)
I only do "biwak" or hikingsleep (lightweight)

using a Dutch army puptent.. or a bilaminaat (tri laminate/goretex like) sleepingbagcover (!) on a BW.. isomat..
On vacation we always rent a rentalhome (tiny one most of the time.. :roll: )

Because my girl is allergic to dampness, cold, warmth, bugs, natural noises in the woods at night, sand, canned food, nature, nonbottled water, fieldbeds, sleepingbags and camouflage..

She also has the worst case of can't-go-out-of-the-house-without-proper-makeup-and-showering syndrome you've ever seen.
And I don't hate the camping itself, I hate it to make it up to my girl again ("Oh.. let's go shopping!.. Oh.. Those are suuuch nice shoes.. Ohh.. let's go out for dinner!")





And yes, it was my own choice. But she has some good sides aswell..
Like.. ehh.. Hmm? There are simply sooo many that I can't even think of them :mrgreen:



I love bad weather, but I hate to wake up wet/damp.. it simply breaks the day..
I don't really care about getting cold, wet, dirty etc.. as long as I can sleep and wake dry.
But I had some bad experiences with tents (along with my girlfriend.. actually started a relationship after camping)


So I'm not sure why I always say camping vacations simply suck.. :mrgreen:

Sure, someone may one day kill me with my own gun.
But they'll have to beat me to death with it because it's empty.

A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.

I guess the BGS tent is the same as we have in white for the civil protection. Heavy duty "plastic" tent with steel (newer one´s Alu) pipe frame. I have a permit to errect such tent´s. It´s a special course you have to go and takes a whole day, at least it was a cousre that took 4 weekends but we got trained

My BW crew tent weight´s ~80kg with all it´s equipment and if necessary, could be errect by just one person. Recommanded are two.
