I already made my major gear purchase for the year.... (living in the glutinous lap of luxury with a new exped snynmat 7 DLX with the integrated pump), so wifey won't be too interested in what I have in mind for mitigating those added numerous DLX ounces. The scales will be tipped back in my net favor if I just splurge on the Skyscape X. At half the weight of my current squall 2, I am seriously being tempted..... Don't know if I could justify dropping $450 on a tent though.
I almost pulled the trigger on a wild oasis/gatewood cape/lunar solo in the past, but kept getting steered away by comments by tall owners who were hitting the sides of the tent with their feet/heads. I almost pulled the trigger on the hexamid as well, but saw those same type of comments. Ron Moak, you are an evil man. You tempt me so.
I love the offset side entry, the extra long interior, all the netting and the porch option.
It is very interesting to see traditional construction weight vs. ultralight weight vs. fringe lunatic weight. This is the first tent that I can think of that has been offered in 3 different versions. There are differences between the models in things like netting used and floor weights, but the main difference is in the canopy materials. Very cool.
34 ounces, 190T canopy, 190T floor, 40D netting
24 ounces, 20D sil canopy, 40D sil floor, 20D netting
16 ounces, CT2K.08 cuben canopy, CT2K.08 cuben floor, 20D netting
