I also wish that SMD still made the meteor, because then I wouldn't have to find the time to make it myself. I've had all the materials sitting in my closet for two months. Any free time goes to hiking rather than sitting at the sewing machine right now. Based on my experience with bivies and with net tents, it seems like the perfect combination. A little elbow room to read plus the ability to have bare feet that won't get bitten up on the relatively warm nights before things cool down.
Ok, as far as the shelter decision goes, I had a difficult time choosing between the patrol shelter and the cirriform. There are extensive reviews of the cuben patrol shelter and how well it works (I think someone named iceaxe has used it a lot). I think it is a little larger feeling that the cirriform and I liked this. The lack of zipper can also be a positive. However, based on lots of experience with flat tarps of silnylon, I knew that without much of a cat cut, it would sag quite a bit if I got the sil version. I couldn't afford the cuben. I have two backpacks from MLD however, and I love them.
Gen seems like a really, really nice person and that keeps me returning to Yama. I love the net tent and the silnylon cirriform. Even in silnylon, they do have that ultralight feel to them. You wouldn't be able to fit another person under there, however, you don't feel cramped at all when you're alone. The quality is excellent. The cirriform looks amazing and is VERY easy to set up, requiring very little adjustment. It can easily be set up higher or lower depending on the weather. If you have time, as well, you can explore ways to get the front pole out of the way of the door a little bit. One very rainy night on the NPT a few weeks ago, I didn't bother to do this and it was a little annoying to try to get past it during a downpour. Still, I imagine this is the same with a mid, where your sleeping area is somewhat exposed with the door open.
A longer cirriform in cuben just might be perfect. I still wish I could grab a patrol shelter in cuben however. There are simply so many good things written about it.
