The one minor thing Id change is make it more of a hook on top than a loop, the tent has a loop in the center for a lantern but I didnt have an obvious way to connect the two. Otherwise its brilliant, Ill be holding on to this one.
Were you able to DIY the existing hoop into a hook? I reckon 3 minutes with a leatherman could fix that. :)

I really like the info on the Klim Dakar pants,

thanks, j
There is a lot of info out there, glad I could help you out a bit. I rode in to work this morning in the Klims and the Firstgear in ~40 degree weather. With the liner in on the Rainier and just a t shirt underneath my torso was warm. I had light thermals under the pants and was a tad cold at speed. The gloves were the real achilles heel, my hands are still sore and stiff. I need something with more insulation.

Ceri JC, I haven't tried yet, but I'm sure it would be cake. It's a bit flimsy, but with any luck sturdy enough so it doesn't grenade or anything .
