The Virga 2 is a smaller version of the Squall 2, which received a 2005 Backpacking Light Lightitude award for superior innovation and performance in lightweight gear. Updated for 2005, it is now rated as a 1+ person tent. Headroom has been increased 3 inches and width increased 6 inches, providing enough room for one person plus gear or two people who like to snuggle. The most obvious change is the addition of an 18-inch carbon fiber strut to the front, which flattens the front peak. There are now two seams on top of the tent. The result is more headroom, usable volume, and pitch options.
