My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Re: Is TT DR the only one?
Free-standing seems to be the kicker here. Right off the top of my head I cannot think of one, but maybe others here will. If you were to take free-standing out then that would open more doors for ...

tying out to furniture!
I seam sealed my Skyscape Trekker indoors and I just used some string to tie it out to a few different pieces of furniture. Worked great, although you do at least have to have the room for the tent...

I use mine on top of my Neo as well in the colder months. It works great as a little extra insulation! I have always "enjoyed" having my thick plush pad under me, but for weight's...
