Any idea when this is coming back in stock? I am super keen to buy it but would like the extra space of the two person vs the one person one that is currently in stock.

The 2P is in the production phase and will be available in the spring (e.g. March/April). I'm not sure how many Drop has ordered, so they may have lots coming or just a small batch that sells out in a few days. You should get a notice if you click the "request" button.

Is that a bathtub floor with no net interior? If so, any details?

Yeah it is. Just a one-off though that I sewed up myself - not something in the works at Drop. I sewed it to take up the normal floor area plus the back vestibule.

Any news yet from Drop on the poles they will be selling for the 2P?

would you think the poles are strong enough in strong wind or would you recommend to stick with trekking poles?

Most of them are stiff enough. The TarpTent ones used to be flexy but I think they switched to thicker tubing now. The Zpacks and Ruta Locura ones are carbon so the tubing doesn't need to be as large diameter. The Zpacks ones are 0.430" diameter and are supposed to be good, while the Ruta Locura ones are a bit wider at 0.450" diameter. So if you're worried about it, the Ruta Locura ones are likely the stiffest.

Hi, I am new to Drop. At this point, I have hit the "Requested" button for the 2p. Is there any place to order it on backorder or make a payment to secure a spot for a future?

There’s no way to secure a spot right now. They did a pre-sale for the production run about two months ago and now they’ve placed a production order. At the time they said there will be more tents available when the production run arrives in the spring (April). Since you’ve requested it, you should get a notice when they go on sale. There’s supposed to be lots. there’s also a chance they do another pre-sale. With the 1P they did a few, but their language this time made it sound like they would only be one, so probably no way to place an order until spring. Requesting it means that you’ll get a notice when it goes on sale, but sometimes people miss these because it goes to their junk folder or they turned off emails from Drop in their account settings. If you want to be extra sure to be notified, you can also sign up for the 2P mailing list on my website at the bottom of this page: http://durstongear.com/product/x-mid-2p

Still available? I’m interested if it is, and if you’re willing to ship abroad.

Drop sent out some pre-production samples to a few people. I think they basically picked a few Drop community members that had a lot of engagement (posts, user reviews etc).

Hey has anyone used the Cascade Mountain Tech telescoping poles or Montem Ultra Z poles with the 1p tent, or can anyone provide any input on how they are expected to work with this 2p tent? I'm building up from scratch so will need to get some poles! Preferably small to pack yet strong enough to hike and shelter in, not too expensive either. All suggestions are welcome, and thanks in advance! :) Oh btw I'm based in Singapore so if anyone knows any good poles (AND FOOTPRINTS!) readily available here that's great as well!

Hi Guys, Can anyone give me a tip about how to have a ground sheet covering the whole area of the tent, includes the vestibules ? Thats 88" X 102" Some guys suggested me to get a tyvek 1443R , or polycro, but those come in smaller sizes. 16ft x 5ft Etc... I don't think connecting 2 pieces of tyvek would work well since you'll lose the waterproofness of the material... So do you guys have any suggestion how to get a one piece of waterproof tent ground for the whole tent? Greatly appreciated!

Hi Dan. Thank you for replying so promptly and thoroughly. Again! What's the logic behind skipping the inner in winter? Is it weight wise? There aren't any bugs wise? Heating the tent with the wood stove wise (I'm guessing that's what you mean when you mention the wood stove...)? Is it all of the above? I'm totally with you on that fabric matter. I really can't afford the time into making a groundsheet every few months. I also like the idea it's more ecological to keep one fabric for years rather than throwing polycryo every now and then... Thanks for the link!! The fabric I was looking at is almost double priced since it is sold by half yards. This also made my choice easier. I just bought it! Can't believe the tent is arriving only in April !!

In the winter I still like a good bathtub floor or snow is constantly getting into my stuff, but without bugs I don't find much need for the mesh part of it. Also the wood stove largely eliminates condensation because it bakes it out of there, so the mesh doesn't help that might. If it was solid fabric it would keep in a bit more warmth, but with the wood stove in the vestibule it might be warmer to not have any mesh/fabric so the wood stove heat can get right to me. I don't mind using the inner, but I would generally keep the door rolled open so I don't have to open/close it constantly when I'm always stoking the fire, cooking, drying my ski boots near the stove etc. The wood stove I use is a 1.5 lbs cylinder stove from TiGoat. I don't think they sell them any more but there are quite a few different options that are probably similar nowadays.
