MSR - RENDEZVOUS 200 WING

Well MSR replaced their popular zing with an almost identical new version the rendezvous wing. Blue in color, same sqft of coverage, and from what I can tell from photos better connection points for poles/tie offs. Anyone gotten their hands on one yet? Of course the same $300 price tag!

Looks identical to the previous model bought except color. I wonder why they renamed it and changed the color to one that is still noticeably translucent, i.e. not the best for shade? That has been my only complaint over the years.

Looking at the specs they switched to a higher denier polyester instead of nylon. Polyester sags less when wet so that should mean less adjusting during storms or in the morning. Weighs about 2 ounces less now.

Will be curious to see if there is any noticeable difference in performance.

Happy with the Nemo offering- bonus of having bug net that rolls out of the way when you're not on Deso~

Went ahead and snagged the new rendezvous 200 from backcountry.com They are running a 20% of any one full priced item put it at $239. Still pricey but I've watched the price on the last model and it just never dipped. Bout as good a deal as I've seen
