It ain’t a double wall and there’s no option for this.
BUT… the Notch Li solves this problem for only 3 oz. more.
SADLY THERE IS ALSO NO OPTION FOR A BROWN OR GREEN DYNEEMA FLY. :o( Shade and more privacy are nice things in a tent – especially for that money.Feb 1, 2020 at 11:57 pm #3629566Eric BlumensaadtBPL Member

Well it’s a great ‘mid design that solves the problems of other Dyneema solo ‘mods.
But… for another 3 oz. I’ll take the TT Notch Li double wall (half solid inner) for its resistance to blowing dust – or spindrift If I’m caught in an unseasonal snowstorm, as happened once. Yep, all that foe another 3 oz., and a bit less inner room.Feb 11, 2020 at 6:23 pm #3630878Mark EdwardsBPL Member

How weather-tite are the vents in a hard, blowing rain? That question is what keeps me from pulling the trigger on this tent. Thanks!Feb 11, 2020 at 7:32 pm #3630890
the front top vent is pretty weather tight imo, the rear lower vent can be closed up all the way if rain is getting in; there is also some flow from under the vestibule and little to no risk w/ blowing rain thereFeb 12, 2020 at 4:49 am #3630920Jon SolomonBPL Member
I don’t like the tensioners used to keep the struts in place. Too fiddly.
I never take the struts out, so for my type of use, the struts add complexity and risk.
Sure enough, when setting the Aeon Li up in a strong wind, one of the struts came out of its pocket due to a slack tensioner and punctured the fly. It was easy to repair, but not fun when it happened.
I’d much prefer to see a version with fixed struts that cannot be removed.Feb 12, 2020 at 7:10 am #3630930
I had the strut that shapes the beak come out on one end, took me quite awhile to figure out how to get it back in- if it comes out again it will be a little quicker fix :)Feb 13, 2020 at 12:00 pm #3631094Jimmy LegsBPL Member
I still absolutely love this tent and can’t wait to test it in inclement weather. However, after a bit more use, I am annoyed at the size of the stuff sack. It needs to be slightly bigger in my opinion. Maybe I’m the only one who is challenged by trying to get the tent back in the sack. But when it is cold and wet and I have a big mile day ahead of me, the last thing I want to do is spend extra time trying to fold and roll it perfectly. I’m going to find a larger sack for my thru hike, just something I don’t want to fiddle with.

I sure want one of these. Just have to wait until back in stock (a bit of a delay currently).
Thanks for sharing owners….Feb 13, 2020 at 1:17 pm #3631118
I’m a little confused on their website- is there an update (change) coming for Aeon Li or is the update- we’ll let you know when they are back in stock?
If they are indeed update the shelter, I’d be very curious in what way.Feb 13, 2020 at 1:51 pm #3631123David UBPL Member
I think it is the latter.Feb 13, 2020 at 2:18 pm #3631125

Some recent r/Ultralight posts from a TT employee indicate that it will actually have some design updates, but they are not yet revealed.Feb 13, 2020 at 3:50 pm #3631138
