The problem, my wife won't use a tarp and bivy combo. She likes tents and we own a Go Lite Trig 2. She likes it but feels more comfortable in a tent. I came across the Big Sky International tents and I am curious. Their UL version with carbon fiber poles weighs in at 39 oz. which is 8 oz. lighter than my Trig 2, plus it is free standing. Sounds great. Has anyone seen one or tried one out yet. Thanks.

Have you seen the review of their Evolution 2P by Ryan Jordan and Will Rietveld here on BPL?

No I missed that. I saw that they were nominated for a litetude award though. I will check out the review. Thanks for the heads up!!

Are there, or going to be, any reviews of the Revolution tents? I'm rather curious about those.

Once again the folks at BPL must be reading their reader's minds. You asked for it and a week later they provide it... a Revolution 2P UL review:
