I emailed Ron Bell of Mountain Laurel Designs today. Quick as a flash he replied. What was it about? I asked him whether he had considered making a solid inner for the Solomid. I’m not at all keen on mesh inners for UK conditions. It just so happens he’s in the process of developing a solid inner and there are some photos on Facebook. With the Spintex outer, this would produce a two skin tent weighing just 625g. For summer backpacking, that’s very tempting. It’s not that spacious, so I think it’s more of a summer weekend or lowland option. He said it should be ready in a few months time.
