@rifleman - Thanks for the input - The fly creek is on the lightest / smallest side of what I would consider. How long was your tour? Would you consider it a TransAm route worthy tent? - Note, I am 5' 9" tall, and dont care if my bags are inside with me. The UL2 isn't much heavier, and my sister may join me for a week or two, so that might mater (she is 4' 11 9/10" tall )My trip was four weeks.I'm 5'11" and I kept my panniets inside with me.It's a cramped tent but don't care I wanted light weight,if I had it to do over again is get the bigger one.I didn't have any problems but a little condensation.As far as a trans am worthy tent ,I'd get something a little more stout I guess the word would be.The fabric is awfully thin and will definitely suggest a footprint.
@dbbcpa - what do YOU find the weight to be? Did you ever use it where you couldn't put stakes in the ground (concrete)?
One more suggestion. The most comfy sleeping pad I have used is also one of the lightest on the market. Check out the NeoAir line. Mine is 12 ounces, packs tiny, and is supremely comfortable. Oh and it is 2.5 inches thick. The only drawback is that it is kind of expensive.Every time I roll over on my neoair it sounds like im laying on a bag of potato chips
