Hey guys, wondering if anyone has used or messed with both the BD (Bibler) i Tent and the Eldorado.

They are the same design, but the Eldorado is 5" Longer, 3 inches wider and a few inches taller, it is 3oz heavier (packed weight, according to the BD website).

Wondering what peoples opinions are. I am leaning towards the Eldorado, so as to have more space for keeping your packs and gear inside the tent in a storm.



Thoughts? Opinions?

Thanks

I based my decision on that I fit better in the Eldo. The I tent is really small and if you or your partners are over 6' you are not going to fit very well. Sunny-D

Don't forget to add a vestibule when you buy it! Steve Williams

At the matching crux
I'm 6'2" and have spent at least 15 nights in my Firstlight which is the exact same size as the iTent. My 2 main winter partners (when I use the tent) are both about 6'. I also had an Eldorado at one point, but sold it. The weight penalty wasn't worth it. In fact, I would suggest a Firstlight over the iTent for the same reason. If the Firstlight is good enough and strong enough for Colin Haley in Patagonia, it's good enough for me. Jon H
