GARUDA makes GREAT tents. The Kusala is a single wall tent. I was worried about condensation, but with the breathability of the wall material AND the high/low venting system their is NO condensation. Even with all the vents zipped up the breathable material "Byro-Tex" does its job well.
I have taken the tent to the High Wind Rivers and to Utah's southern deserts. All with super results. I do leave ALL the vents and the vestibule door open on the hot desert trips, but hey I think everyone does that when it's 100 F plus.
Garuda's are not cheap but, they are made wonderfully. And weigh very little.

Have used this tent in all types of conditions. Never had any trouble out of it. No condensation problems, vents good, is a real good one-man tent. However two can get by all right if all you do is sleep. Weather, rain, heat--never been an issue. Would recommend if it was still around.
