    Default Durston XMid

    Anyone else here involved in the feeding frenzy for an xmid this week? After much delay due to "disruptions in the supply chain", a limited number of XMid (version w) tents went on sale. Half were released on Mon and half today. I joined the Dan Durston sage cult in order to get the inside scoop on how to get one. As predicted they sold out in seconds. On Monday I was shut out despite furious clicking. Today, after much practice and clicking exercises, I got through and expect delivery sometime in Feb. Once it arrives I'll have an old TT Notch to sell.

    Well you've bought a very nice tent. I carried it last year on a 600 mile section of the PCT. Highly recommended.

    You got very lucky...they sold out in minutes. I will buy one once they get a normal supply chain rolling.

    Looking forward to it. This newest batch has been slightly redesigned. Roomier inside.

    I used the tent on a thru-hike of the Arizona Trail this past fall. Great tent. You might want to take a look at the stuff sack. If your tent gets wet, it's hard to get in the sack. I got caught in snow (in October!) north of Flagstaff. I had to empty my Ursack and stuff the tent in there and attach it to the outside of my pack. With all the snow and ice on the tent, I couldn't get it into its stuff sack.

    I'm heading for a LASH of the PCT this year and the XMid will be going along.

    Congrats on scoring one, Odd Man Out, username does not check out

    Similar story here, I tried on Monday, failed, and felt anxious all week until I was able to snag one yesterday. I went with a 1p.

    So, it looks like I'll be taking the 5 year-old silnylon OG Lunar Solo out on two more trips before she retires to the "loaner bin". The end of an era. Really looking forward to starting a new double-wall era.

    I was able to snag one on Monday the 10th. The original version that I have is very good but the improvements on V2 will make it a very in-demand tent for the foreseeable future.
