I am not buying a new tent

Bushwalking gear and paraphernalia. Electronic gadget topics (inc. GPS, PLB, chargers) belong in the 'Techno Babble' sub-forum.

TIP: The online Bushwalk Inventory System can help bushwalkers with a variety of bushwalk planning tasks, including: Manage which items they take bushwalking so that they do not forget anything they might need, plan meals for their walks, and automatically compile food/fuel shopping lists (lists of consumables) required to make and cook the meals for each walk. It is particularly useful for planning for groups who share food or other items, but is also useful for individual walkers.

BUT
What are peoples thoughts on the Nemo Apollo?
It is on sale at Paddy Pallin

I haven't replaced my Megamid yet and if tadpoles come with me and I need more shelter than the bothybag allows would it be suitable for a storm shelter?

Hi MD,

I don't have the Apollo, but I do have the penalite. I think it's fabulously well made and can be well guyed out for a storm. It's the most robust mid I've owned. I think the Apollo would be the same.
That said I will be moving away from my mid (so torn as I love it, but don't always want to walk with poles). Your welcome to purchase down the track if you wish. I have an inner with it too made by Evan. PM if interested.
Cheers
Mic

One of the reasons I've not bought any new tents [ apart from always being broke] is being over 6 foot tall I need more room than most
I'll keep that offer in mind.
I'm still using that old Minaret tho just need something lighter for the day touring with spuds
