    Very nice!!! Shame that it does come in proper FB size lol!!

    I need a zpacks hexamid duplex tent in my life!! A place for 1 but perfectly big enough for me and the wife and weighs just 593g for everything!!

    If anyone is thinking of ordering anything off zpacks, I'm after a Cuban dry bag and maybe a pack cover, would be happy to split postage!!

    I have my eye on a duplex too. My girlfriend came with me for 6 nights recently ... We only camped every second night, stayed in hostels on the other nights but I still had to carry 2.4 kg tent for every day. If I was sure she would come out again regularly I would be very tempted. Huge weight saving without compromising on space. I'd worry about it in our "damp" climate though. I wouldn't mind a bit of condensation but it's hard to explain to someone that water inside the really expensive tent is normal !!

    I agree about the condensation, they address that in the video, the angle of the side walls means that the water runs down an through the mesh, apparently.

    Hard to explain water inside to people who don't understand condensation no matter where it goes :)
