Do any of you guys have experience with these new ultralight teepee style tents like those made by "seek outside" or kifaru? I've been dreading the weight of my pack for an elk hunt this fall and a buddy recommended buying a newer lighter tent. I've currently got an REI half dome with fly and foot print that weighs in at roughly 6 lbs with stakes and all. These light teepee tents are only about 2.5lbs and you can add a titanium wood burning stove that only adds another 2 lbs or so. I have to admit the idea of a wood stove and room at stand up sounds fantastic to me after a long day of back country hunting. I would love to hear from anyone who has tried one of these.
