Big Sky Revolution 2P tent

Postby rowdy » Fri 16 Aug, 2019 11:11 am

I have this two person tent with the tyvek sheltersaver that I bought second hand from this forum (I have copied a fair bit of the original listing as it was very good, I hope that is OK). I bought it for a specific trip I was doing with my daughter which we have now done so I don't have a need for it anymore.

It was lightly used by the previous owner and only used for the one trip by me so it still presents as nearly new.

This is the version with the cross pole as there is a version without the cross pole. It adds strength and makes the vestibules overhang the doors (which you can clearly see well in the pics above) are vertical giving more internal space and could easily be left open in rain.
Please check the pics at the web address below. It is exactly the one and colour you see there. It has huge vestibules! The largest of packs would fit with shoes etc. It does not sag overnight and needs no retensioning like sil tents. All internal seams are taped for perfect waterproofness.

There are reviews there as well attesting to it’s quality.

The floor is non slip and seam taped SIL/PU and very robust already. It is a true two person tent at 135 cms wide at the head end. -you should fit two wide and long, though not rectangular pads in it as it is slightly narrower at the foot end.
The floor is PU coated, so no sliding around on your mat nor need for silicone dots.
Adding the Tyvek floor makes the whole thing very tough and durable.

The tent minus peg/stakes is 1.517 kgs and very lightweight and makes for a very small package.
It goes up in one piece in about 1 1/2 minutes with a bit of practise. Perfect for rain. There are several youtube reviews of this tent minus the crossbar. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGgxWCu_prc ...shows how easy it is putting it up in the rain.You can also see how small the packed tent is and some internal shots showing the interior.

The space inside is remarkable. The head end is slightly higher and wider than the foot end because of the slightly off-set nature of the diagonal pole set. You can see it in the official pics.
I also have the official TYVEK floor saver shown on the site see the link below.

The shelter saver allows you to leave the inner at home and set up tarp like.
There is a great review here showing the tent in the Western Arthurs in Tassie.
