So I just did a quick price search.... $589-$700.... OUCH !!! Might be worth it for some people I suppose but with all the other light tents out there I'd have to pass. I don't feel the cost justifies the weight savings. I am sure they will come out with a lighter model somewhere down the road, maybe made from 2 ply, super stregth, silicone impregnated tissue paper. :)

Kudos to Terra Nova on the accomplishment though. That's definitely light.

Light tent that also lightens your wallet.  With all the weight I would save I could not afford to buy anything else.

Hi

Just so you know we offer a full range of lightweight tents in other materials at lower price points

Regards

The Laser Comp or Photon 1 would seem like a more feasible choice as far as weight savings and being wallet friendly. I have a slight bit of experience with the Comp. A friend has one and I used it a few times when I was on my search for a solo. Nice tents.
