I want to introduce you to a new tent designer, named Tim Evans. This is his first attempt and I am very impressed. He has designed a new single person cuben fiber tent called Diamond solo. We worked with him to bring this tent into realization. The first tent came in at 9 oz, but I believe that we can easily get it under 8.5 oz. He originally designed it to use a single nanolight pole so that the packed size was 4" x 12", but a trekking pole works perfectly and it can be packed down to 4" x 10".
Here is his video:
Also, here are a couple of pics.
I am curious to hear some of your comments about the design and to give him some positive feedback for encouragement.
