First I give the manufacture credit for listening to our minimalist subculture. Addressing our concerns of light weight, comfort, and sliding issues and risking warranty/durability and the cost of new tech development.
One the most attractive aspects of the Neo is the thickness. Distance off the ground helps alleviate my anxiety of leaking tent floors and less than prefect site selection.

Hi james

Did you really mean 'duel'? What weapons? Alky stoves at 5 paces?
:-) :-)

Man against the elements. Management , prevention, annihilation of water infiltration into the inner sanctum of the sleeping environment. (insert maniacal laugh here)

No, trekking poles! :-P lol

Edit: (due to the wars about trekking poles lately, anyone not using them can use their canister stoves) :D

Having just watched the original Star Wars series (parts 4-6) over the weekend (babysitting my grandkids), all I could think of was dueling with NeoAirs at 10 paces.... At least they are less deadly than light sabers!
