my previous boom tent, yet remains just as inexpensive and easy to construct. It fits and functions better, it's a little quicker to set up, and it's brighter inside. It also resolves some shortcomings that I discovered using the previous tent.
The most obvious improvement is the color. While cammo green may be ideal for Stealth Camping, it has the unfortunate affect of making the interior of the tent very dark. This new tent is made from white polytarp which is far brighter inside. I like the brightness a lot better.
The tent performed well during the Pocket Yacht Palooza Crooza where it rained quite hard during the night.
Will there be a version 3? Probably - there is always room for improvement. I noticed a couple of small drips during the night (although it was raining very hard). They are due to flaws (holes) in the polytarp material. The tent could be made less drafty. It would be warmer at night if I had taken greater care in eliminating gaps between the tent and the deck around the front. But overall I am quite pleased with the results.
