Who needs a canoe if you have an MEC tent? I wonder what model it was...

The secondary stability seems to be a bit lacking though

So that's a total endorsement for the bathtub tent floor design then?

The answer is obvious-----had it been on the inside he could have floated all the way too NB

And what he needed on the outside in this case was a keel - or at least some tent pegs. :-)

He bought the tent at MEC, it doesn't mean it was a MEC tent!!

lol
it is a MEC tent. pretty sure. see pic, strapped on pack.
tag looks like mecs.
Not MSR (thinner, red or light grey sack) nor TNF (black/yellow).

Ill bet it's the mec AMP tent from looks of it.
too slim to be MEC's camper tent (3 person).
also, think swAMP tent. which is further evidence.

Not that it matters.
Most bathtub tents, out of box, would withstand that.
