I acquired the Kilo 1-person this week. Tried to find as much information as I could online before I bought it, but there wasn't a lot. The few pictures I looked at told me a few things--it appeared to have tight head and shoulder room but a decent vestibule for a 1-man--but ultimately I had to fly blind. So, below, for those of you interested, are my weigh-in and backyard set up results. Notably, I've rounded weights up to the nearest ounce since I have an old fashioned kitchen scale, but noted parenthetically what the actual weight appears to be closer to.
Weight out of the box with paperwork and tags still in the tent bag: 2 lbs 4 oz
Weight with eight stakes (and stake repair piece, airlock connector repair piece, little fabric square), two guy lines, tent, pole, fly, and component bags: 2 lbs 1 oz
Eight stakes: 3 oz (more like 2.5)
Pole: 4 oz (more like 3.5)
Tent: 14 oz (more like 13.5)
Fly: 12 oz (more like 11.5)
Bags: 1 oz
Guy lines and pole repair piece barely moved the needle and definitely came in under an ounce.
Set up impressions:
The tent definitely has nice floor space for a 1-man, but it's tight in terms of head and shoulder room, particularly if one is six feet (which I am) or above. Measuring things, I got about 89 inches long, 36 inches wide at the tent's widest floor point, and about 39 inches tall at the tallest point. Sitting up in the center of the tent, if I moved at all, my head touched the tent walls, as did my shoulders. I had plenty of room lying down though, much more than in my old REI T1 Quarter Dome.
The actual set up of the tent was pretty easy, including putting the fly on. What surprised me was the vestibule space--I could easily fit my backpack in it. There was plenty of room for entry and exit without having to shove stuff to the side, which is something I would have to do with my Quarter Dome.
On the flip side, what concerns me a little about the tent is the lack of shoulder room combined with the way the fly rests on the tent. Because the tent has sort of a strange triangular configuration, the fly is pretty close to the backside of the tent itself. I experimented with various things to make the fly stand off the tent, like putting the guy lines on and changing the position of the stakes, but just could not get it to really stand off the body. My fear is that this could be kind of crappy in a condensation or rain situation, but obviously I'll have to give it a real world test to know for sure. An extra guy point on the back of the fly would probably resolve this issue, assuming it is an issue at all.
In sum, I like the weight of the tent, the floor space, and the vestibule, but do have a concern about the head/shoulder room fly "issue". Pics below.
