I'm new to this site, but hardly new to sea kayaking B.C. and Alaska. I'm just getting into paddling solo since my spouse gave it up to old age. My smaller tents are old and I'm hoping to find a new tent/ dining fly combo to make storm days more livable and maybe even comfortable. It would be smaller than our Mountain Hardwear Trango 3 and fit well with an adjoining dining fly/rainy day space. I used to use a Kelty sunshade, but it's really too big and heavy for solo, but Kelty does sell a "cabana shelter" that might fill the bill for a dining room. Anybody bought a tent or dining fly recently that they can recommend for a solo Alaskan paddler? Oh yeah. I guess I carry a lot of gear for a kayaker when it comes to tents, but I've got a Feathercraft K-1, and, like with a backpack, there's always room for one more thing. And it's nice to spend a stormy day in comfort.
