Door panel. With a stove in use it effectively becomes a single entrance tent.

It's feels a bit larger than BT2 and sets up quicker / simpler.

Looks really nice.

I had sold my BT-2 a while back, and missed it as an 'always' shelter in my pack.

Ordered a Silvertip a couple days ago, and really liking what I'm seeing here.

I didn't realize it has a peak vent also, nice.

I slept other side of the pole from the stove . My camp location was poor, not much level ground in the trees and more level ground had no trees for fire !!!

Looking good Kevin. I like the guy out options for us tall guys. Not that I'm looking to get rid of my LBO anytime soon, what benefits if any would someone get with the Silvertip over say an LBO with vestibule?
