An old GF had a summer job testing canvas tents for Woods in I think thunder bay, she said the guy really wanted to love canvas tents but they were never water proof, but check the woods site they may have something that interests you and notice all the Woods tents are not canvas

I hate bugs, so not a huge fan of tarps, although they're super light.

I also don't really like one man tents, considering I often use them for hunting and need to fit that stuff in there with me when I am out.

Used to use an old Eureka! 3 man tent, but it was heavy… Just picked up one of these, they are soemthing like 2.5lbs, not bad for a two man.

Albert Edward is our first mission, not sure when the gf can get a day off with just starting a new job and all but hopefully soon.

Ha Ha! Made you look.

Good choice, I wish we had that model for the side entry vs. the end entry of our Fly Creek.
