Hey Dan, I'm looking into building a groundsheet for my tent, I just have a quick question. What materials do I need in order to be able to clip the ground sheet to the fly of my tent? Do I need to buy some grommets and elastic cordage? Where can I find clips?

Thanks alot Dan, I really enjoy using the tent! Just need to work a bit on getting my pitch perfect ( the bottom of the fly is always super high off of the ground 😅).

Try setting the corner cords shorter before you stake it out. Just have 2" or so. And make sure that rectangular base is tensioned tight before you add the poles.

Hey Dan, I was wondering if you've heard any updates from Drop regarding the possibility of a solid inner for the X-mid? I'm liking the idea of this tent a lot more than a SS2 but the option of being able to use a solid inner in the winter is something that is important to me as I intend to use whichever tent I get in mild winter conditions. Thanks

A solid inner is still uncertain at this point. I'd really like to do it and I've discussed it some with Drop, but it's not certain as to whether they'll approve that version. I think it will happen eventually but hard to say when. I'll be talking to them about it over the next few months trying to convince them to do it for next year. Hard to say how that will play out. I know there is a lot of interest.

ISO - Footprint. Anybody here made their own footprint that would be willing to make another for someone? I can pay via venmo or paypal. I was considering buying the DUCK Max window insulation but I don't have any way of adding the grommets. Thanks.

Just wanted to say, I love this tent! If you're on the fence about it, go for it! I've done a first impressions video review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5WbKf2G7ZY&feature=youtu.be

Are there any updates on expected actual ship date? I know past runs have shipped between 1-6 weeks early, how is it looking for this run? Further, is there a "latest date to order" for this round, such that I could wait to order until it is clear when it will ship? This is in regards to an aim to receive the tent by the 20th of August in Massachusetts

Ok, that makes some sense -- I appreciate the explanation! I'm not particularly bothered by the wait; we've got other options, and by all accounts, it'll be well worth it.. Fingers crossed we get a timely surprise :)

Me & My boyfriend are completely new to UL backpacking. When we found this tent, it was an immediate yes! Thankfully we have no immediate need for it - so looking forward to it's arrival at the end of August. I'm also planning to purchase the 40L backpack when the time is right (hopefully my nemo forte 20 sleeping fits OK until I can justify buying a lightweight quilt). Thank you for designing this amazing tent & backpack thats also a reasonable cost!

I understand you are a Canadian company out of B.C. if this is true why when I preorder are they charging me USD. When I live in Canada. I do wish to order but am questioning actually paying full price when there is no indication of when it will ship and from where.

As mentioned, I'm based in BC, Canada but I only do the design/testing work for the tents. Drop is a partner in producing these tents, where they handle actually producing the tents, sales, marketing, customer support, warranty etc. So they are the ones actually producing and selling the tents, and since they are USA based, the pricing for the tents is in USD. These tents will ship from Drop's warehouse in New Jersey. The estimated ship date is listed as August 31 (see the banner at the top of the page, or details at the bottom). Shipping to Canada is quite affordable ($13 as I recall) but you may be charged taxes/duties when it arrives. Canada has an 18% tariff on tents that is intermittently enforced, plus there is sales tax (5-13% depending on province) and a $10 handling fee by Canada Post.

Okay. Thank you for the quick reply. I placed my order tonight and will be waiting for it to come to replace my MEC spark1 tent. Enjoy your next adventure.

I added some toggles and shockcord on the end of my 48" collapsible poles to pull out the inner tent (as they don't have have handles to hold the stock bungees). May be useful to someone.

Say that someone was an idiot and lost a couple of their stakes, what would be a decent replacement?

You can buy similar stakes to the stock ones from Vargo (see link) and they also sell wider stakes like the Crevice and Summit stakes if you camp on softer soils. I don't recommend their ascent stake because it's weaker and bends quite easily: https://vargooutdoors.com/titanium-tent-stakes.html
