"Easy Light can be better than Ultralight"
A little pricey, but a great, fairly light full featured double wall tent. My tent weighed 2lbs. 10 oz. with all the trimmings - bags, poles, stakes, cord. This tent is super easy to set up, and really free standing, the BA competition is almost freestanding, just not the rear, and there is a difference. I've spent 10 nights in it, but only one rainy night. I remained completely dry. I would like another inch of headroom. Fits me and my pack with room to spare. If it was a little wider/ taller at the foot it would fit two, but as it is I would not recommend it for two grownups.
"Seriously well thought out little tent.."
If you're reading this you probably really care about weight, so I weighed it for you. The trail weight was *exactly* what it claims to be. Nice work.My first impressions:* I first pitched this with no practice in a thunderstorm and it kept me dry. Good start.* Buy a footprint - UL is code for 'take extra care'.* 2 person actually means 2 hobbits, or 1 normal size adult (I'm 6ft). There's plenty room for me, but no chance you'll get me in there with a big guy.* Take care to get the cross pole the right way up on the first attempt, and you can pitch it in about 1 minute.* The vestibule doesn’t drip water into the tent when opened, unlike the nearest competition…
