Eskimo Quick Flip II

5 posts in this topic

I have seen this on sale and am curious if anyone has any feedback. I like the size and the price but I am concerned about the canvas- you can see thru it.

I have a Fishtrap II now that is getting some holes - any feedback?

I purchased one of these, like you said size form and function are nice but canvas stinks. Mine was new in the box so I didn't realize the tent wasn't the same as the display model, which had excellent canvas. Check the one you buy there are diffent grades of cloth. I contacted ardisam they are sending me a new skin of high quality for free.

I've looked at them but I ended up gettting a fish trap guide because when I sat in them they let alot of light in. I also talked to some guys on the ice about them and they didnt like all the light that came in and he said they dont do well in wind they were very flimsey. Hope this will help and good luck.

MN,
I just got mine for Xmas and the ice here in western SD sucks so I've only used it once and you're right the canvas is quite light. It didn't seem like it it was built that flimsy as stated before but when I put it inside for storage I slid it on it's side and burned a hole in it right off the bat. It's my first portable so I really don't have a lot to compare it to.

I have the eskimo traveler. The best that I can say for the eskimo products is that they tend to be cheaper than most of the rest. You don't get cheaper using the same products as the more expensive lines.

Hence cheaper = cheap

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
