The Lightwave t1 cylq (pronounced "silk") is a well-built, double wall, hoop tunnel shelter suitable for three-season usage and weighing right under 2 kilograms (around 4 pounds). There are large mesh panels on the inner tent and three vents on the fly for ventilation. Taller hikers beware; the t1 cylq is on the small side with respect to length and height.
