I like the analogy of the swiss army knife effect...all in one=poor individual items.

I use the term "integration" as an ambiguous term to say that the elements will not be one, but only complement each other as much as possible, before the pocket-knife effect begins.

I do agree that I will rely on some version of a single wall tent, but maybe it could have some minimal inner, or enough ventilation to compensate. Condensation is indeed a major factor, thank you. The sleeping pad integration is also a quality idea, i will be sure to explore this.

I will be sure to document my process when I start my true ideation and testing in the next few weeks. My summer semester will start May 9th, and right before this I plan to get out for a week at minimum to try out options and just get my head in the game. Thanks again for your help!
