I'm considering this tent for cycle touring in Scotland with my wife. I have two questions - can the tent be piched flysheet first (it can often be raining very persistently) and secondly Scotland can be terrrible with midges (very small biting insects) - will the mesh inner keep the rascals out? It will need to be a very fine mesh.
You could pitch the fly first using the footprint. I've never seen any insects get through the mesh, and I live in North Carolina where there is basically any horrible insect you could imagine.
