Another alternative is Six Moon Designs Wild Oasis, $175, 13 oz. It's a 
lot like the Gatewood Cape, also made of silnylon but with a fringe of 
bug netting so you won't need to carry a net tent.  With stakes and a 
tyvek groundsheet, the total comes to 17 oz on my scale.  I've had it 
out in all sorts of weather including a freak April snowstorm that 
dumped 18" of wet snow on PA's Mid State Trail.  I had to slap at the 
tarp sides to make the snow slide off, but it performed well.  Also 
sheds wind well.  The only drawback is it might be a tad short for those 
over 6 ft tall.  ---Handlebar
