I thought I would let the EFF know about some new ultralight shelters coming out. They have some nice specs on weight.

If I calculated the conversion right from grams, pack weight .98 pounds for the solo, 1.4 pounds for the duo? It looks very roomy from the footprint and picture too. It sounds like you can also use the trekking poles similar to what you do on your Tarptent. They both have some nice specs.

Yeah that is what I get for weights also. Pretty light.

With that price tag, I will let bb do a good review on it before I drop that coin. I wonder how it would do in snow. You know what they say though, you get what you pay for!

Interesting review. I note the US website lists them as waterproof. They do look a little small.

Spooning will be necessary.

I love that line. They looked decent size to me on website, not on that review though.

They do look a lil small but for the weight of a duo you could carry it for one man tent easy enough but id be concerned about conensation from the looks of it to me. Any thoughts on that?

Any single wall tent like these (and my beloved tarptent) will have condensation issues. With the tarptent it is about the pitch. I use a stick at the foot end to bring it up, and I sleep with the door open unless it is raining.
