This is the only rain fly made for the Metolius Bomb Shelter Double Ledge. It has all the key features of a standard fly; tent pole, reinforcements at the wear spots, and a quick deploy bag. The main difference is that it comes with a window and is more expensive. The Metolius rain fly has unique clip-in points so that water can't wick in on the webbing. However, you can fix the issue on rain flys that have webbing clip-in points by dipping them in Plasti Dip. This fly is at an awkward price point. It is only $75 cheaper than the Black Diamond Deluxe Cliff Cabana Double Fly that has a ton more features and is better suited to serious storms. It would be nice if Metolius lost the window and made a version of this fly that was $100 cheaper.
