      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

The North Face - Aguila 23 & 33 tents

Recommended Posts

I am looking at ordering a North face Aguila 23 two person, three season tent or an Aguila 33 three person, three season tent. They look like very nice tents having the mesh ceilings make them look comfortable during the summer plus a view of the night sky is a bonus. Has anyone use one of these tents, if so, are they worth the $?

I've generally found that North Face is over priced. Too many people (myself included) have come to know North Face of Abercrombie of the outdoor gear world.

From my experiences? Generally North Face makes a quality product but they are over priced. When I have been looking for gear North Face has something worth looking at but another company makes a slightly better product for a far better price.

And I write all of this as I sit here wearing a pair of North Face shorts. (The only reason i bought them was a super clearance)

I know that North Face stuff is usually over prices, but this tent has the specific design, especially with the open mesh top half for better air flow during the summer. Plus its better being able to fall asleep getting a view of the stars. If you know of any other kind of tent with the same features that can sleep 2 - 3 people, I would love to know the name and brand.

There are alot of different 2 and 3 person, 3 season tents on the market today. Just depends what exactly you are wanting to which company you finally choose. Here's a link that I use when wanting to find the newest outdoor and remote camping equipment on the market. newest camping gear

What's nice is it gives also the price and places to buy from, also reviews on the product and gear.

Another tent that has the feature (looking at the stars) is made by Quest. I believe it's called the starlight...might want to double check that (model)but great quality product none the less. I use to have that tent when I lived in Flagstaff, AZ. It's also a two person tent. Perfect for yourself, dog and backpack! Good luck on your search.

I ended up ordering a North Face Aguila 23 tent off of [YouNeedAuthorization] about a month ago and have had the opportunity to use it and I must say that this is by far the best tent I have ever owned. The pole system keeps the tent sturdy and strong in higher winds and offers plenty of extra space for storage. I plan on using this tent frequently next year on mountain biking trips and especially for trout fishing. Thank all of you for the suggestion, but after reviewing other tentas, I found this one to be the best choice for me. Next thing I am looking to purchase is a good option for a spring/fall weather sleeping bag that is easy to stow.

Good to hear that you enjoyed the purchase of your new tent.

I have a 20 year old North Face tent, 3 person full season tent that is still going strong after all these years. Treat it well and store it clean and dry and it will last you many camping season's to come.

    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
