Adventure NW-Vapor Light 1

Weighing in at about 3 lbs (Sierra Designs lists the "trail weight" as 2 lbs 14 oz) the Vapor Light 1 offers a lot of real estate for teh weight. An ingenious hubbed pole configuration really raises the roof; its peak height is 38 inches, high enough to sit up with relative comfort. At 82 inches long, there was enough room for me to stretch out- this might be an issue for those much taller than six feet.
Pitching the Vapor light is-literally- a snap. The Jakes Foot pole attchments snap into place with ease. It took me about two minutes to pitch. I spent one night with the rain fly off and it felt like I was sleeping under the stars-nothing but mesh between me and the heavens. If you're traveling solo, the Vapor light 1 might just make you forget about your beloved bivy once and for all.
