Seems like we've drifted a bit. The OP is looking for a shelter to be used in a specific manner. i.e. tent platforms in humid buggy areas. I think a double wall free standing lightweight tent might be hard to beat with a single wall shelter. Maybe you can elaborate on what you've learned though. My experiences have been primarily in double wall tents (and occasionally cowboy camping w/just a bivy) so admittedly, I don't really know a whole lot about single wall shelter options
Also, for those not familiar with the platforms, usually there are eye bolts available around the perimeter of the platforms to tie off too. sometimes requires getting a little creative if more than one tent are sharing a platform
I just got a big sky tent that will be used in a similar way up in the Whites on tent platforms. Tent is very nice. Not cheap, and I would recommend finding out if your choice is in stock
Another option might be the Easton Kilo that just came out. Double wall, free standing 2P tent at just over 2lbs
Let us know how it is. I was very interested when I first heard about this tent. Ultimately I went for a BS Revolution 3P for a bit more volume (and a weight penalty) but still very curious to hear about the Kilo and the poles in particular.
