Scouts-L Mail Archive for February of 1999: Wenzel wesults.
Thu, 4 Feb 1999 10:16:20 -0600
At about 3 to 1 against I have decided not to go with
the Wenzel. This was not for a Scout troop but for
a personal "family tent". I wanted a big one and, of
course the money goes up with the square footage.
I did not realize Wenzel made Hillary for Sears.
I have one of them and, like many of the replys pointed
out, is okay for light duty but not for continued use.
Thanks for all the feedback, it was a big factor in
my decision. FYI, I am narrowing in on a Eureka Equinox 6.
I like the near vertical sides and tall peak. I love to
be able to stand up. We will be in it a week and this
looks like a good home away from home.
Our troop uses Eureka (timberline I think) and aside
from the zippers, I am pretty happy with them. But hey,
with a zipper repair kit even that annoyance is workable.
(right Archie?) Thanks again for all the good feedback!
Troop 45 Howe, Texas
