The Durston X-Mid Pro 1P (Dyneema Composite Fabric) tent is going to be released tomorrow, January 24. I've sure enjoyed my standard fabric X-mid. It is a great tent. I'm guessing the Pro will be even better. Durston X-mid Pro 1

Second recommendation for the X-Mid 1P sil-poly version. I've been very happy with mine.

I have an X-Mid (silpoly) 2P and X-Mid PRO 2P (Dyneema). The weight reduction on the Dyneema version is accomplished with a combination of lighter material, Design (2 wall versus 1.5 wall), and size (slightly reduced area). I assume the same applies to the 1P. The size reduction on the 2P makes it just 48in. wide (internal width) which is pretty minimal for a 2P tent. The Dyneema version also does not compact as well as silpoly so although it is lighter the packed size is nearly the same. All-in-all I think the design is a good balance of size to weight. The Dyneema version is tight but viable for 2 if the weight is really critical and makes a roomy and light weight tent for one. I expect the extra ounces dropped from the 1P includes similar trade-offs.

Reddit (/r/ultralight) really loves these Durston tents. I've been thinking about buying a 2P model to replace my MSR Hubba Hubba which is admittedly not ultralight. But every time I try to they're sold out. Is it worth it? How do they do in wind and rain? My Hubba Hubba seems to be able to withstand anything I've thrown at it... including downpours, heavy wind, light snow, and about 75 nights of use so far.

A friend sent me a link to the older version of the 2 person Durston 2p tent that he saw online for $65, I tried to order it and it turned out to be an attack site and my credit card was locked. The website was Pickentt. Not to derail the tread but has anyone had experience with the REI flash2 tent? https://www.rei.com/product/168565/rei-co-op-flash-air-2-tent?CAWELAID=120217890009810087&CAGPSPN=pla&CAAGID=119726970428&CATCI=aud-830183485327:pla-853602067583&cm_mmc=PLA_Google%7C21700000001700551_1685650001%7C92700057902269350%7CPB%7C71700000074311899&gclid=Cj0KCQiAw8OeBhCeARIsAGxWtUzmqR5_Jlk2byFVuaC_6LI2uHgAlD32XmZAebaGTzRJJF9OKRDH52caAsRNEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.
