While cuben is far too pricey for my budget, if I won the lottery I would probably buy a ZPacks Hexamid to try out. Unfortunately, once I put my dog in it (even right after thorough grooming), it would be unreturnable, although I might be able to sell the tent by advertising the extra R-value! I doubt it would be possible to remove dog hair from the netting completely!
I put a couple of things on my Christmas list, like a pair of Smartwool glove liners and a lightweight knife suitable for cleaning/fileting fish, but if I don't get them as a present, I probably won't go out and buy them.
I am thinking of switching to a tarp if I can get tarp/bugnet/ground sheet combination for my dog and me that weighs significantly less than my current 26 oz. tent. Before I get anything, though, I want to try this out with a cheap tarp.
