More of the group I bp with have a BD Hilight, like I do. Not sure why they have all been driven that way. I'd say at least four of us that I personally know have one now. Best in cold conditions, that way the rain can't get you damp. I still have to vent it BIG or get a lot of condensation or frost inside. It would zip up spindrift tight if needed, but I've never tested it in heavy snow or high, blowing snow conditions. Snow is easily shaken off during the night, then pushed away from the sides. That could be a pita in heavy snow fall. 3.5 lbs. seam sealed, 4 stakes, more needed in high winds to avoid damage from rocks used as anchors.
