The MontBell Monoframe Diamond is a double wall tent that weighs only 2.5 pounds. MontBell has designed the tent so that it can be pitched with just the fly and pole, which MontBell calls "Fast and Lite" mode. This drops the weight below 1.5 pounds for a tarp-like shelter. The diamond design has some real positive points but results in the Diamond's biggest drawback too.
