I have a Big Sky Chinook 1P that isn't getting any action.

At ~1.4kg I've mainly used it for snow shoe camping. It's been a good shelter and it been tough enough. I bought it 2016 and it's done a few, but is in top condition.

Comes with tyvek original footprint.

230cm interior - 7.5 ft - so you can take a big pillow!

Will upload several very cool photos, but the Choose File button isn't working.

Its RRP at BBL is $659 - about $59 more than it was in 2016.

As its sitting on the shelf - $450 ONO?
