    "Black Diamond Mirage Tent 4.75"
    abrowland, you could easily cut 2 pounds or more off your tent if you were willing to go to an ultralight single person. I am thinking about getting a Big Agnes Fly Creek UL1. I talked to a G&F biologist who spends a lot of time in the field and he said he really likes this tent.

    Good tip!! I'm 6'5" 200#. I have trouble fitting in a lot of the smaller tents - I'll check it out though.

    That could definitely limit your options on tents, don't think the Fly Creek will work for you but there is probably something out there lighter than what you are using.

    A great way to track your gear and weights is with a program or spreadsheet called geargrams. You can enter all your gear and weights. Create gear lists etc. There is a demo video with it, check it out it works well.

    How do you guys like the fly creek UL2 vestibule? I was looking at this tent and wondering about cooking/heating water inside the vestibule while it's raining or storming?

    It's small, but doable. I had a Fly Creek UL1 for the last two seasons, but just purchased the UL2. The UL1 was large enough to cook in, but you have to be really careful not to melt the fabric. I'm hoping the UL2's vestible will give me a little more room.

    I have a Big Agnes Seedhouse 2, which is very similar in design to the Fly Creek. I really like the vestibule for storing gear; however, if it is raining out, it is very hard to open and close it without getting everything wet! I have cooked in the vestibule before, but like twp1224 said, you have to be very careful not to burn the fabric. As I was boiling water, I kept feeling the fabric and it was definitely warm. It made me a little bit nervous, but it was raining out and I didn't really want to go out and try and cook supper and get wet.
