Vintage Early Winters Light Dimension and Starship Gore-Tex laminate single wall tents. $200 each. Both tents are 2-person, 4-season backpacking tents, designed in the mid 70's, made in Seattle. The tunnel shaped Light Dimension weighs 3.8 lbs. and is 96" long x 57"wide with two telescoping poles. The dome shaped Starship weighs just over 5 lbs. and is slightly bigger than the Light Dimension, with four telescoping poles. In a pinch you can fit 3 people in it. Both are in immaculate condition and have been stored properly, so they still look new...netting has no holes, all zippers work, floor is excellent with no sign of the urethane pealing, no smells. Both tents include the original stuff sacks as well as the telescoping poles. Pictures available

These are bomber shelters. I still use mine and it looks like new. The only problem with them over time is that the coated nylon on the bottom loses its coating. I use spray on sealer to re-coat.

Slept in one of those in the late 70s during a March ski tour into the Wind River Range. Overnight lows around 0F , typically a 1/2 inch thick layer of hoare frost on the interior in the morning. It was tricky to emerge without lots of the frost peeling off and falling on the sleeping bags.
