I sewed up this Bilgy two man tent from plans. Weighs 2 lb 6 oz INCLUDING stakes and Tyvek footprint. It has a bathtub floor and is very light and airy. Quite an experience and I was glad to let go of my 4 lb. Hubba Hubba.Plans and materials were had from Quest Outfitters for around $100.Photos:

What fabric did you use for the tent body? How long did it take you?
1.1 oz. silnylonI'm guessing between 30 & 40 hours. Not having a lot of experience with sewing slowed me down a bit.The designer will answer questions via email.

Nicely done. Rain and bug protection, what a great combination. I like that the netting sidewalls rise as high as they do; it should help minimize contact with the fly, condensation concerns if they arise.
