Thanks Shawn, your point is well taken. It has been my experience that people don't ever seem to change their ways in doing business. The last thing I want to deal with is my own rage at getting screwed!!
Soo.. I guess I am now looking for an alternative double-walled silnylon/mesh tent that is as lite as the Evolution 1P (2lb. 4oz.) I' have considered the Contrail or GG Squall, they are sharp looking well thought out tents and certainly lite enough, but I'm going to be doing some camping at about 32F. I just bought myself a super sweet new ultra light down bag, from Western Mountaineering and I don't want to even have to think about the possibilities of condensation and wet down.. Neither would I want to have to sleep in a bivy inside the tent. I noticed that a liner is now being sold for the double Rainbow, so it must have some condensation problems. At some point I plan to get a Contrail but not for this trip.
So my question is this: Are there any other super lite (close to 2lb). 1P double-walled tents on the market, preferably with a front rather than side access and vestible, and room to sit up w/o hitting one's head?
I've waded thru the sites of all the tent designers I know about, which isn't that many, and tent reviews too, but so far I've only found the single walled tents this light. In general it seems that the problem is that none of the double walled tent makers, except Big Sky, are designing tents using new lighter materials in the rain fly.
