Well i bought the xwt outfitter from cabela's, it came with 44 steel stakes and 20ish ropes and tensioners. I swapped the ropes and tensioners with some 5/32" nylon rope, and made a prussik for each guy line for a tensioner. I think i will try aluminum gutter spikes for stakes. My scale says I just lost 14lbs.
Anyone try this? are the spikes gonna make it? I love the tent, but 45lbs is killing me, 30 still sux, but I think it is woth a few extra lbs for comfort.
