Re Mesh weight
The SuperMid's a 4P shelter, significantly larger than both the Luna 2 and UltaMid 2. It has approx 54sqft of mesh going around the perimeter (9'x9'x18"), hence the weight. Howev...

Re: New Golite Bitterroot with Downtek
Just saw that. Curious they would list the total weight in oz (13) but the down fill in grams (150). Other than the use of Downtek, I wonder whether they made any design changes since last season.
