    Hello,
    The tent in the picture.
    Is this the ONE?
    I missed out on getting a shelter from GG when they were still making them.
    Any suggestions on a great and similar alternative to a GG shelter?

    Thanks,
    Kyle

    Hi Kyle

    Look at the http://www.tarptent.com website. Henry Shires makes high quality lightweight tents as well.

    P.S. Gossamer Gear will certainly produce tents again. They just need to test and find new materials to redesign their products.
