Since I am crowd-averse, I seem to do most of my camping in the 'shoulder seasons'. If the nights weren't so long (and boring), winter camping here on the coast would suit me pretty well, too.John, I love the look of the Hilleburg line of tents, but don‘t you find them a little hot and steamy for our coastal tripping season? I have an MSR Elixir, which is a fine tent, but my main complaint is that it has too little mesh. What has been your experience in the Hilleburg and Cloud Peak?
With two doors with full mesh, and pretty large roof vents, my Allak doesn't seem too warm. Evenings close to the water almost always seem cool to me, and if a cool mist rolls in, I am glad to be able to zip up the fabric doors. I definitely wouldn't be happy in a tent like the Hubba.
Perhaps a sign of advancing age? I definitely 'sleep colder' than I used to do. And sleeping solo, there's only half the heat output inside the '2-person' tent.
