Has anyone bit the bullet and bought/tried the Strat Li?

Yep, I've had one for a while now. What would you like to know?

Cool, thankyou.

Happy with it? Plenty of room? Did you get the solid or mesh inner?

Tossing up between this, a duplex, a Bonfus Duos and maybe a DR Li.

Very happy with it, great tent.

Loads of room, palatial for one, I use it as a two person tent. Fits my partner and myself plus some gear without issue. Big vestibules. Big footprint to match, but is manageable with the ability to peg vestibules flat and pitch vestibules over objects like rocks and roots. I've even put pegs for guylines into tree stumps before and it pitched fine.

I got both mesh and solid inner.

Never owned a zpacks product, but I wouldn't go near them. Too much smoke for there not to be a fire.

Thanks coimon,

I own a bunch of Zpacks stuff and it's fine. However, a mate has a duplex and the finish around the zip is a mess.

I think if I go down the Stratosphere Li route I'd get the solid inner and make a bathtub floor to suit (when using fly only) to cut some weight.

Just throwing my 2c out there...

For years I owned different Zpacks tents and was somewhat satisfied. When I bought my first Tarptent in 2018 I was blown away! The construction, design and quality were light years ahead. I resigned myself to never buy another zpacks product again...

I'm so glad I signed up for the 2pp XMid before seeing this thread. Or am I . . . ?

If they made the 2p XMid in DCF it would cost approximately three arms and a leg. Might even be worth that if you can afford it.
