    I'm a little more than half way there with the Allak. I've been seeing other tents on some trips (please don't tell her) so it'll be a while before I'll get to 700.

    I need another tent like I need a root canal but I ordered the 1p. The price point is ridiculously attractive. I'm surprised more users here haven't chimed in about this tent.
