I'm thinking about taking the plunge and plunking down the $$ for a cuben tent. Looking at my gear room, I noticed that I'm collecting a brevy of small tents... solo, solo+dog, solo+bugs, UL but small 2-person, roomy but heavy 2-person, etc.
I'm looking to simplify. I really like the idea of having one "go to" tent for most of my trips, whether I go alone, with the dog, or with my son and have it handle all 3-season conditions, including bugs and humidity.
I haven't completely abandoned the idea of making one but, right now, I'm too busy (and lazy.)
So, what should I consider? What I'd like:
- sub 2lb for everything (i.e. seam-sealed, lines, stakes) except for support
- hiking poles for support
- fully enclosed. Note that it's not enough to just have a net "curtain" with a separate floor. We had mice issues last fall and want it fully enclosed with a solid floor.
- minimal condensation issues (I just don't want to have to think about it too much)
- "roomy" interior, minimal crawling
- solo + large dog (or skinny teen) + gear (vestibule or inside, I don't care)
My first thought is the Lightheart Solong, in cuben, with the awning. I have the LH Solo and really like it, especially the easy setup, but it's too small for me and my dog.
Any cons for cuben, aside from the price?
