Insanely awesome cuben fiber tent. My last trip I used it as a 2 person tent and there was so much room, it was like staying in a hotel room. Hey! The thing weighs 1 pound 4 ounces, slightly more with netting, so why not? We weathered a few brutal afternoon thunderstorms with strong winds with zero problems.
It's tall enough to sit up in. It’s great in wind. It’s silly easy to setup. I LOVE this tent!!!
My son and I set the tent up in 2 – 3 minutes. Stake it. Lash your trekking poles together. Put pole in center… done. You can order a perimeter bug netting (we did) + a full screen door. I’d also add the guy that runs Bearpaw Wilderness Designs will customize his tents for you. I just ordered a fully custom tent from John (not the Luna 4 I'm reviewing now) for considerably less than other similar tents that aren’t custom. I don’t know of another cottage manufacturer out there that does what John does for the price.
In brief, weight – doesn’t really get lower, space – outstanding, easy and fast to setup, outstanding in weather. If you're considering plunking down for a cuben tent, you should take a look.
The only beef I have with the tent is, like all single wall tents, there is condensation on cold nights… or thunderstorms.
