This is an awesome minimalist shelter. At just over a pound, very compact, waterproof, and versatile, I don't think I could be more satisfied in my purchase.
On my most recent trip with this shelter, I had to set up in the dark. The first setup takes a while to get it right, but once you get the hang of it it's easy. I was being hounded by mosquitoes and was tired but was still able to set up the fly and the nest in about 4 minutes. It is very roomy for a solo shelter. Two people could lay inside the nest (just to give you an idea of how wide it is).
Here is a picture of the tent and nest attached on the outside of my Osprey Talon 22L pack (tent in green bag, nest in yellow)

When you need a lightweight basic shelter for backpacking the Golite Shanri-La 1 Person Tent provides an easy to erect cover from the elements. On it's own as a floorless shelter or paired with the separate Golite Nest or Floor, this fly beads off water with SilLite(TM) material that uses silicone impregnated nylon that is durable and flexible while remaining lighter than traditional tent materials. Woven nylon No-See-Um mesh blocks out even the smallest bugs. Designed to stand with the aid of your trekking poles or be suspended from external peak loops this shelter eliminates extra gear for an even lighter setup, and with reflective guy points you get a sturdy fly that won't blow away in the wind. When space and weight are scarce pick up the Shangri-La Flysheet for your next adventure.
