Kai,

how is your Rocket Tent holding up? After only a shortlifespan, my rocket material started delaminating where the inner started peeling away like glad wrap. Problem only got worse over time and Brooks Range replaced it with a new Propel tent (same dimensions) and it's held up very well for me after maybe 30 nights. Unfortunately it sags more than the cuben but at least it cant delaminate.

i'd be interested to hear about other user's experience with the rocket tent long term.

It's holding up, but I haven't used it all that much. I have only 6 or 7 nights in it. I heard about the delamination issues, and that's made me use it less. I like the design, and I like the Cuben Fiber fabric. I'm pretty much decided on limiting my use of the Rocket to "carry over" climbs or other situations where I really need the light weight and low bulk. For everything else, I'm using the Firstlight or the Rab Summit Extreme.
