Expensive but good. We have a Stephenson's Warmlite 2R, which is a 4 season
tent weighing 3 lbs. We have used it in Torres del Paine, Patagonia, which
has horrific winds, as well in our last segment of the PCT, through
Washington state. I highly recommend the R version instead of the X version
to avoid condensation. Also in high wind areas, be sure to order the wind
stabilizers - a $15 addon. They also have a climbers version, which I think
is about 2 feet shorter.
