I've got a little used SD Origami 2 UL with the pole set, stakes, ropes, stuff sac, and the bathtub floor, all in excellent condition. I did seam seal it once a fit of caution, so take that into account if it's important to you. I've used it around a half dozen times, and have decided that this just isn't for me-prefer a regular old tarp. I'd like $100 for the entire kit.
I also have a SD Light Year 1, 2007 model, with the footprint, stakes, and sacs all for $80. It's been used a bit but is clean and in good order with no rips tears, or damage.
Pictures available upon request, and would prefer paypal. Buyers local to me (NoVa/DC/MD area) can pick up if they like. Thanks.Feb 5, 2013 at 6:23 pm #1951192
How much doe the tents weigh?Feb 5, 2013 at 6:38 pm #1951200
Light Year comes in at 3 lbs 5 oz, with stuff sac, stakes and pole set. The foot print weighs another 7 oz.
The Origami is a bit more complicated. The tarp alone weighs a bare 2 pounds. With stuff sac, pole, and stakes it weighs 3 lbs 4 oz, and the floor weighs 1 lb 4 oz. One can use it with a trekking pole and a bare minumum of 6 stakes. The SD pole and stuff sac are way overweight and can be left behind. Using the tarp with a trekking pole is the best way to go, and leaving the floor behind saves even more weight. I was using it as a one man shelter with a tyvek ground sheet for my sleeping bag.Feb 8, 2013 at 7:24 am #1952163

What type of sealant did you use to seam seal the Origami?

If a trekking pole is used instead of the SD pole, what is there in the manner of hardware in the peak of the tarp to accept the point (tip) of the trekking pole?

Nothing special-just heavily reinforced fabric created by overlapping panels and seam tape, plus a loop for hanging stuff. It is very strong-I was using a rubber foot for a pole tip to support the tarp with no issues. That's if I was using the floor, if not I would just support the tarp on the pole handle directly with the tip stuck into the ground. Here's a picture of the peak on the inside of the tarp:
A decent description of the shelter is here:

Both shelters have been sold.
