I'll use it in the western mountains like the Spring Mt'ns. just outside of 'Vegas, the Sierra Nevada, northern Nevada's Ruby Mt'ns. and possibly the Rockies' Indian Peaks range.
If I get the Scarp 2 I will shorten the crossing poles and run them Inside the fly, corner-to-corner, with the ends in wedge-shaped Cordurs pockets sewn at the apexes of the corner CF rods. I've done this with my TT Moment and an inside configuration gives better canopy support.
IF a Hilleberg 2 man tent is lighter by enough I suppose I could cough up the extra money. I'll check HJilleberg's website. Whatever it is it must be freestanding (except the vestibule).
But is there an American brand 2 man, 4 season tent at 4.75 lbs. or less? I haven't found one so far in a double wall of ripstop fabric.
