Gossamer is defined by Webster as "something light...floating in air," and Gossamer Gear adheres to that standard in all of their products. Their new (Spring 2008) The One one-person shelter, at seventeen ounces (tent only), breaks new ground by providing full weather and bug protection plus amenities like a zippered vestibule, large zippered entry door, and a floating bathtub floor. There are lots of reasons to love this tent, but it still needs some refinements.
