Can the tent be set up without the vestibules...

Can the tent be set up without the vestibules to save weight so it is more like the guiding light?

Adam,
The vestibules are attached (sewn) to the body of the tent, as you can see in this video as the guy seals the seam between
tent body and vestibule: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Q-jk9R_vMI
Hope this helps.

Hola, soy Dakka.
Good call Tim. Adam, The vestibule has an area of 20 sq ft, if you have 3-4 people in your group, the vestibule will no doubt get used. Also, with that # of people in your group, have someone carry the tent and another poles and stakes. This will help you save weight.
