Our lightest weight free-standing tent ever. Roomy enough for two, light enough for one. Setting the standard for ultra-lightweight livable space.

Looks like a nice tent, any idea what the price will be? 30 Square feet for 2 people is fine for a little while but is a little tight.

Another interesting shelter coming out from Mountainsmith this spring: http://mountainsmith.com/index.php/tents-sleeping-bags/tents/mountain-shelter-lt.html

That Mountainsmith reminds me a lot of the Integral Designs Silshelter:

New one from Big Agnes. I just got a new tent last year, but this one makes me want a new tent again. 2 lbs, full tent.

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." (Theodore Roosevelt)

I prefer something more along the lines of the Mega Princess Elite which features the tent - air matress combination.

FYI the Golite store in Denver had the Imogene UL2 and UL3, and has a UL2 set up.

At 78 inches long you'd better not be vertically advantaged. Most tents need to be 92" for me not to be pressing against them with my bag at head or foot.
