I like this tent, the fact that it comes with a flat fly door and a vestibule is a cool idea, giving you choices. But some of the specs are a bit confusing. The minimum weight stated is 3lbs 7oz. Is that with the flat fly door, the vestibule or both? I emailed Nemo about it a while ago and never got a reply. The optional trekking pole vestibule is nice I wonder what the weight would be with that. 

Cool tent though, I like the idea. The 3rd brow pole on the three person is nice, would be cool on the 2 as well. I wish it was a bit longer though.
