Sorry, you want singleskin? Have a look at Nemo maybe.Posted 4 years agod45ythMember
Have Mountain Laurel Designs got anything like what you want? If not, they do custom work too. There are a few other small American brands like this, I’m struggling to remember their names though.

It seems to me that you might be as well using a mesh inner along with a tarp. Then you would have the option of using them separately in the right conditions. Ignore that…using the a mesh inner with its proper outer would be better than that, as it would be easier to set up.D45yth wrote:

Possibly. I was just remembering that Hamish Brown came up with a similar design (quite) a few years back but without the mesh. It seemed to me that modern materials could make it a decent option.Posted 4 years ago
The Mountain Hardwear tent I was thinking of was called the Waypoint. It had a mesh strip above a bathtub-type ground-sheet to improve ventilation, but from memory, it didn’t actually work very well at all. It didn’t have a vestibule at all either, but the bottom line, from memory was that condensation was still a real probem despite the mesh. I suspect there aren’t many similar designs partly for that reason.Posted 4 years ago
