  1. Anyone here with experience/opinions of the Altaplex and/or Solplex?

    The extra room vs the plexamid and similar weight, esp considering the plexamid
    strut issues has me intrigued in these shelters.
    Any info appreciated..

  2. I read last week that z-packs is revamping their plexamid. Anyone know any details?

    The breaking roof struts are the problem, or so i have read.
    I am really interested in this shelter.
    I really like my lunar solo and the plex is somewhat similar but 10-12 oz less wt
  3. Anyone ever paired a Z-Packs pocket tarp with doors and a MLD innernet?

    ...just looking at some UL options to get my base wt down
