    Yes, absolutely. Except the LightHeart is double walled. It's also available in Cuben and NanoSeeum.

    I like that strut, between the trekking poles. Imagine a built-in strut like that on a TT Sublite II. That and some sort of covered entrance lash up.

    "What concerns me … the lack of height on the ends. While this type of design is very wind worthy, I fear that I might be a bit claustrophobic."

    Ross,
    A quick and dirty schematic shows the LH Solo has more headroom than a Duomid (pitched tight to the ground).

    Overall length is 133", and if you center a 7' "sleep system", you have about 18" above the head and feet.

    In theory.

    Now, wasn't someone doing a review of the LH Solo ?

    "Tarpents are no doubt fast to setup, but you do still have to unravel the pole, guide it through the sleeve, fit it into the grommets, go around to to the other grommet and erect the tent, all while outside."

    Yes , but can you (anyone) set up any other shelter as fast as this…

    Exactly. I have been hesitant to get a Mid or Duomid because of the design. I understand why it is popular (simple and very storm worthy) but I'm concerned about headroom. In general, though, I (like many others) eagerly await Ryan's review.

    Innovative pole design?
    Dana designs Javelina?

    I'm 5' 9" and I have plenty of headroom.

    I did do a brief write-up here.

    If you look on the 2nd picture you can see how much room I have with a Exped Synmat 7 DLX which is a 26"x76"x3" pad.

    While the vestibule isn't huge, it doesn't need to be because my pack went inside the tent with me.
