    Golite shangr la 1,2,3
    Nemo has a few stellar tents as well.
    Search rei and filter your parameters

    The GoLite pyramid Shelters have LOTS of room for the weight. They are even better when you go floorless.

    Looks like the Big Agnes deals have a broken link. They have Demo tents, bags, etc. at good prices. You may want to call them. If you purchase a new tent, get ahold of Steve at http://www.sandsarchery.com. He's a great guy to work with.

    That's OK, you just end up haulin' a little extra weight.

    Watch Steepandcheap.com for a couple days and a good deal on an ALPS tent will come out.
