My sentiments exactly. The guys who spend big bucks on tents must have an ego to feed. My cheapos have lasted me as well as my buddys many many nights of dry reliable camping. This from a guy with over 500K miles of riding, and thousands of nights camping in rain/snow/wind/heat/rocky terrain/sand/dirt/ you name it. I'd much rather dump my $25-40 tent once every 5 yrs or so (which has not been the case) than spend $250-400 on something that strokes my ego, but doesn't last any longer and surely isn't any more reliable.
