About Me My wife and I are originally from MI. We love to travel and hike. I've been an avid backpacker for over 20 years. After my first week long trip carrying #60 I started down the lightweight road. I like to make some of my own gear when I can. I've been a designer all my adult life, primarily in the automotive industry but also 6 years in aerospace.

Re: Any Enlightened Users out there?
I love my Rev X bag. I think it would work great for you Steven. Talk to Tim personally if you have any questions or concerns.

World's lightest tent?

Re: why I would like two doors. As others have said, for ventilation and views, as well as being able to access both vestibules while in the tent. Solo tents, because they are "solo" tent...
