Seeking a new 2-man tent for my girlfriend and I.
I think this guy's setup looks really cool, giving a good mix of bug free living space and vestibule:

I'd like to do something similar, but swapping the Supermid for an Oware (or BD, Locus Gear), mainly to avoid the MLD wait times.
He looks like he has reasonable space for two on one side of the pole, but he's also using CCF pads, whereas we use neoairs. Has anyone got experience sleeping in this configuration in a 9x9 mid and can comment on how much usable width there is? Like the link, I'd do a well fitted custom Bearpaw inner, and obviously we can live with being fairly close...
Alternative would be to jump up to the 10x10 or 11x11 Oware, but then it's heavier and site selection gets progressively harder, so I would prefer to stick to 9x9 if it is workable (plus I think the Locus Gear Khafra looks really well made, so I'd probably go down that road over Oware if choosing 9x9...)
Edit: Foolishly doing my due diligence after posting, I now realise that the Khafra is slightly rectangular and not as tall, so unlikely to work regardless, and the BD mega light is more like 7.2' square, which won't cut it... So I guess it's really just Oware vs Oware :)
