Has anyone had any experience with either the Lighthouse or Firstlight from Bibler?

Seen a prototype take around 3 hours from a lawn sprinkler during a back yard bbq...dry as a bone inside.

I have a jacket made from epic (Wild Things)...was in a fierce downpour last summer...dry on the inside.

Seems like a good fabric. I hear rumor that when it gets dirty, it loses some ability to bead up water droplets...but...a refresher DWR type finish supposedly fixes that.

I'd say these tents should be winners. My Bibler Winter Bivy bag breathes very well, and is super lightweight to boot.
