There is a very short teaser on the Facebook Tarptent page of the new Aeon tent.
It's a new design, should be announced with photos and specs pretty soon.
Ready in January ( I think...)

I'm going to be honest. Teasers, especially like this one, just annoy me a hell of a lot more than they tickle my interest. Why not just release the information? They're basically nothing more than clickbait. I own a tarptent. I like tarptent. But this is just silly.

To save everyone time, there's a single person single pole dcf ~1lb tent that looks like its got a notch style end section, coming from tarptent with more details in about a week.

(And it probably took you longer to read that sentence the video runs for.)

I was going to add to my post :
people that can't stand teasers, please don't watch...
Maybe I should have.

For those that are not offended, someone posted a link to Instagram :
https://www.instagram.com/p/Bq-xhf3FuI6/
I don't know if I already had an account there but I can see it.
Apparently you can't see it on Face Book without an account.

Not sure but I might have found a photo of Franco testing out the new Aeon

I posted a photo like years ago that to illustrate the benefits of a head tent.

There is a strong connection between head and the new shelter.
It's a tall order to work it out but it will become clear soon.

Anyway, this is my version of a minimalist version. no poles needed for it :

In the UK you wouldn't get anything built without Poles. :roll:

On a slightly more serious note, it isn't all that unusual to read comments like " if I had known that was coming out , I would have not bought this..."
That is not restricted to tents or outdoor gear.
(ever noticed that Aldi has on special this week something you bough the week before ?)
As I pointed out in a British forum , teasers, vague announcements, whispers have been happening in the camera trade (one I am familiar with) for many decades.
Oddly there are several sites ( for example canonrumors/sonyalpharumors/mirrorlessrumour/canonwatch...) that report rumours on a particular brand or type and even sites that report rumours from other rumour sites.
in fact there are probably more sites speculating about new cameras than hiking forum sites.
So , as usual, you can't please all .
