X-Large Fly Creek!
5 5

UL2 Slater fixes the length problems of the Fly Creek for 5'10" and up people. All ultra light tents in this class are 86" which means tall people's bags ram into the tent walls front and back, this tent is the only UL that I know that fixes that issue. It also is the only one that I know that is really an Ultra Light 2 person tent! It is wider than the fly creek as well. It also could be thought as a 3.5-4 Season with the new semi-mesh free inside. I have not experienced any condensation issues but have not tried it in real wet, but if the user uses the vents front and back I cant see how it could be that large of an issue. The front zips totally open to 100% mesh bug screen, which is a great option.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

If you like your sleep and struggle to sleep on backpacking trips you should own this pad. I've tried them all and this one is the best. Paired with a rectangular shaped BA 800 loft down bag (Mystic SL) and there is little difference in weight from other set ups but you are 10 times more comfy than the other pads/bags. The side tubes really do help. If you were going in the winter it would require a closed cell foam pad under to get a lower than 15 F rating. Strictly a three season pad for cold sleepers.
