I currently have no summer shelter, sold my old TT Squall, sold my one season Hex tent, sold my once set up SMD Skyscape X a week ago. An oz here and an oz there starts adding up, back up to a pound. The 12.5 oz Hex tent was nice, just the large staked footprint. I think I like the cuben flat tarp and MLD Bug Bivy coupled, but open for further research. I have to add in a tent pole since I do not use trekking poles, close to a pound with a few ti stakes added in and line. Just looking for ease of setup and a small staked footprint. May or may not go with another Hex tarp or the Pocket Hex tarp. There is a BPL group trip in Jan., maybe I can check out others shelters there or ask the vendors who come. I like the no fiddle factor of the MLD Bug Bivy (bug, ground water) protection, but if I could find a nice netting pattern to just hang some separate netting, I'm open to that, which would be cheap. From what I've found, a regular bivy is too hard to slip into, you have to pour yourself into one.
