    The Zephyros is twice the price of the Chinook.

    Ah yeah, my bad. Was looking at the price on gelert site rather then ebay/amazon etc.

    Never been up mountains camping, ...One day I hope

    The poles are quite good quality so can stand up to strong winds as long as you have it pegged/guyed decent. I have seen many people mention they add extra guy points so its more like the Akto.

    Yeah, That's what I'm leaning towards. What I suppose I want is to blend into environment but that depends on location I guess.

    I'm just about sold on hammock/tarp as I could always setup travel hammock as a bivi and tarp over as a shelter if going somewhere with no suitable tree's.

    From what I can gather it blends in very well - look at how military camo has changed over the years
