Haha good point WD, I suppose I should have specified environment. It'll mostly be for use in the Southeast and Midwest, most weather 3 season and good weather winter. Red River Gorge, Smoky Mountains, AT. By most conditions, I mean, I don't tend to stay in the field for forecasts of tornadoes or massive storms. Lots of bugs and humidity in the summer, lots of rain in the spring. Winds can be relatively high, but nothing like alpine conditions.

I want the light, hi-tech version of a basic, versatile boy scout tent for backpacking in the woods. Bathtub floor and full netting enclosure are necessary, not just a shelter.

A stormy night at Iceberg Lake (that was fun, for masochistic values of the word "fun") is not a consideration for this purchase.
