    I haven’t seen any discussion yet of the new Zpacks Plex Solo shelter. Best I can tell is that it is a Plexamid, same size, except it ditches the spreader bars at the top and instead brings the top to a true peak, saving ~1.4 oz. Probably can pack a little smaller without the spreader bars. It might offer an advantage for slightly taller hikers as it looks like the sides are at a slightly steeper slope, so less likely to touch the wall with your face when sitting up or toes at the other end, but that seems a marginal advantage for those of a specific height. Mainly it seems to be a redesigned Plexamid that saves 1.4 oz.

    Thoughts?
