Yeah, I saw that. Awful lot of information there on the tent, Tom.
Gee, I don't know what I was thinking. ;-)

By the way I was looking for a review of the tent, not a paragraph on
"what I did with my weekend".

Are you sure it's actually marketed by Hi-Tec? It could be a case
where Hit-Tec licenses their trademark to another company. You'll
typically see this in the fine print on the box or instructions.

I'll check. I see a very similar product by Suisse Sport.

I'm probably going to take it back anyway. After I realized how big
this thing actually is, I don't need something that big. I think I'll
shoot for a 10x10 dome or something.
