Hey guys, wondering if anyone has used or messed with both the BD (Bibler) i Tent and the Eldorado.

They are the same design, but the Eldorado is 5" Longer, 3 inches wider and a few inches taller, it is 3oz heavier (packed weight, according to the BD website).

Wondering what peoples opinions are. I am leaning towards the Eldorado, so as to have more space for keeping your packs and gear inside the tent in a storm.



Thoughts? Opinions?

Thanks

I based my decision on that I fit better in the Eldo. The I tent is really small and if you or your partners are over 6' you are not going to fit very well. Sunny-D

I'm 6'2" and have spent at least 15 nights in my Firstlight which is the exact same size as the iTent. My 2 main winter partners (when I use the tent) are both about 6'. I also had an Eldorado at one point, but sold it. The weight penalty wasn't worth it. In fact, I would suggest a Firstlight over the iTent for the same reason. If the Firstlight is good enough and strong enough for Colin Haley in Patagonia, it's good enough for me. Jon H
