Features

The Enhanced Bed Net System (EBNS) is built around the popular and proven Improved BedNet System (IBNS). Based on feedback from Marines in the field, we made the original BedNet tougher and added on a rainshelter. Simply pop out the BedNet, attach the shock-corded pole, throw the rainfly over it, and stake it down. Now, not only are you protected from insects, you are protected from the elements as well. The EBNS features a full fly with two doors and two vestibules. The back-door vestibule is designed to fit a fully loaded pack inside the door. It also features weatherprotected mesh air vents for circulation. The IBNS is the base of this system, therefore it can be used independently as an insect barrier if needed. It is a light and easy-to-use system that has proven itself effective in some of the worst conditions in the world. Since they pack so small they are perfect for "bug out" or disaster bags.

Editorial Review

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.

Having bought this tent on a recommendation from a Marine buddy, I went on a 15 day rotation in the box at N.T.C. The tent held up to take down and raise up due to the changing of Alpha alphas everyday. One thing that did not stay together was the bag it ripped on day 8. Overall a very good tent but the carrying bag needs reinforcement at the zipper and thicker nylons for the bag shell.
