The HP has more fabric rather than mesh. The Hubba Hubba models are wonderful tents. Two doors, full enclosure, two vestibules, Light weight. It's dreamy. If looking elsewhere, try Henry Shires' Tarp Tent. They get loads of great reviews around here.

Thanks for the help. Planning a thru-hike on the PCT in 2010. Going with my girlfriend so comfort is a little more important than usual.

Great. Have fun!

The forums here have a section for Long-Distance trails as well. You might information there helpful as well - if you need it.
