Zpacks has released their Flex, free-standing pole system, previously only available on their Duplex shelter, for their solo ‘Solplex’ shelter, and is being called the Zpacks Solplex Flex Tent Upgrade.
For a bit of background, the Zpacks Solplex was released on November 12, 2014, if my records are correct.
It is not very often that we get a new tent on the market that is worth talking about.
Rumors have been floating around for a few weeks that Gossamer Gear was bring back ‘The One”, which I think most folks that have been in the hiking world for any length of time should remember… it was one of the original ultra light solo shelters from a cottage maker that really had a major market impact – it was highly loved by many, and there are a fair number of shelters on the market right now that are based on The One design!
I had my doubts about the rumors, and I am so very glad to hear that I was wrong.
