Took Repo out for a o/n hike from home, little over an hour hike up FS roads. Took my TT Double Rainbow Li for its maiden voyage. Left the liner out to see what condensation would be like. Had condensation, no frost even with 19F temp, no dripping. What I really noticed this morning while fixing coffee and taking the tent down was that with the carbon fiber poles, my hands did not get cold like they would when handling aluminum poles on my other tents I have used when snow camping. Nice. Was comfortable last night, but there was no wind.
