The Wolverine Rainfly Kit can be added to the Burrow to create the Wolverine EBNS, our other contract heavy-hitter. The greatest feature of this rainfly is its spacious dual vestibules. The entry side door opens wide to allow easy entry, and the storage side door offers a wider vestibule for storing a full size pack with room leftover. With the common sense re-design of the Wolverine rainfly, we also decided to offer a common sense way to purchase it. Separately. The NSN for the full EBNS is still relevant, but now customers can purchase the Rainfly Kit on its own to pair with their existing Burrow.

Strong and Spacey

I hiked in new gear that I needed to test alongside the Ottawa river near Petawawa, Ont and setted up the wolverine rain fly as a shelter for the night. The wind was fast and cold but the shelter stood strong! Sometimes I envy the badger system for the fast and light deployment but having my ruck beside me in the tent and still space for boots is a nice luxury. Good job!

EBNS

As a tour company, we use a myriad of commercial grade equipment for the execution of our tours. After reviewing and using many tents in the past (Arc’Teryx, Marmot, North Face, Big Agnes, etc.), we have settled on the EBNS Coyote Brown as our core, individual use tent. The fast setup, durable construction and subdued color are ideal for our use as well as our clients.

I personally use this tent as well and have used it in Australia and as recently in the US for a 48 day horse tour scouting evolution finishing last week: http://www.riverspilot.com/River-Pilot-Fall-2011-Horse-Scouting-Evolution-n110

The current tent has been in my possession since approximately April 2009 after being shipped to me in Perth and was used for 3 months in daily use. After one year of storage it was brought back into use starting in May 17, 2011 and has been used daily until November 15, 2011. For 4 months it was static, out in the elements and used as a primary shelter. Then for 48 days it was used as the primary shelter being moved, deployed, taken down, and re—deployed daily. During that evolution the tent developed a small tear in the fly. The Easton pole also developed a crack, similar in location to where the first pole years ago failed, along it’s edge.

However, all in all this tent has performed flawlessly. It’s used in wet, cold and hot conditions and has yet to not keep me at least safe and reasonably dry at minimum. Given that this current tent has an accumulation of at least 1 year of daily use, that is a wonderful achievement by MMI/Catoma.

Below you will find our findings and field tested, minor improvement recommendations. Some pictures have been included.

Findings

1. The rain fly has a tear in it. The sun seems to have weakened the fly.
2. The Easton pole has developed a crack in the same place as before on the NON Easton pole that was originally delivered in the very first, foreign made tent.
3. The Shock Cord in the Easton tent pole is starting to be less “springy” over time and in wet conditions.
4. The tent floor and mosquito net have developed small tears. This comes from storing the tent poles and tent stakes in one package, directly touching each other. That allows friction of the two products which develops rub tears.

Good News

1. The tents fiberglass supporting rod has not cracked and the black, square, screw connector for the fiberglass rods hasn’t needed to be tightened or replaced as before.
2. In driving rains, the much used tent remained waterproof. The fly seam lamination appears to stay where it was applied.

Summary – Overall a fantastic tent. Small, lightweight, durable, with a low visibility signature.

Thanks for your assistance and feel free to contact me as necessary.

    Fly was really easy to set up and doesn’t sag! I really like the air vents too. All around good purchase!

    Perfect rain fly! I used it for 3-weeks in Louisiana. It survived some torrential downpours and never leaked at all. The vestibule as plenty of space to keep extra items dry. Everything packs small enough to fit inside of the pack while leaving space for the other essentials.

    Just got my package yesterday. I already had the Burrow EBNS and was very satisfied. I set up the Wolverine Rainfly and groundcloth with the Burrow, but I must say it was NOT easy at first. There we NO instructions with my package. After about an hour of several failed configurations I think I finally got it right. Eventually, I realized (at least I think so, since there are no instructions) that the Rainfly itself doesn’t really attach to the Burrow. Instead, the center pole connects and then the Rainfly simply lays over top, which only really works with the stakes places to keep the Rainfly taut over the tent. Otherwise, I’m satisfied. The two vestibules is a nice touch! It is lightweight, and now that I know how to set it up (I think), it should set up very fast and easy.
