It is a shelter not a tent.

If I wanted a tent I would have bought a tent. I have plenty of tents. I consider this to be a cross between a tent and a tarp. The places that I hike into are very limited as to enough flat ground, or space for setting up a tent. Parachute cord works well in place of trekking poles when there are plenty of places to tie off. The system works well for me. With a little imagination the possibilities are endless, and I am very happy with my purchase.

For a basic shelter, I bought the MSR Twing which is the same weight or less when you consider that the Twing is factory seam-sealed and includes guylines, yet affords a lot more room to move around and more pitching options.

THE ID Element shows a lot of promise. Addressing the issues I highlighted in my review wouldn't add much weight and I hope ID does. I love the concept.

That is why we have Chevy’s and Fords.:-) I looked at other options and this is what I selected that best suited my needs, plus it cost less. If I decide to make any improvement, I shall do so. I do know how to sew.
