Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I tried out the uberlight on the AT at around 2000 elevation in April. Temps dropped to the low 40’s. I was concerned about the r value so I tried putting an underquilt under me between me and the pad. Later in the morning hours I changed this and put the underquilt on top of myself and I did not notice any cold on my backside. Was just as comfortable as the neoair xlight, and maybe a little quieter. Bottom line nice pad and super light. No concern about temps at least in the low 40’s. Easily packs in the included stuff sack. Easy to roll up lengthwise and fold up in fourths. I got mine 25% off, so I got a great deal on it. So light that you can bring it as a backup even if you are hammock camping (which is what happened to me - high winds kept me out of the hammock and into my buddy’s tent). Worth the money IMO.

Good tent. Very light

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've used the tent several times now. I've used it in heavy rain, hot weather and cool weather. It goes up easy and I sometimes restake a corner or two after getting it up. It's about 2 lbs. 6 oz. as it comes. I replaced the stakes with MSR Carbon stakes to lower weight to 2 lbs. 4 oz. The tent is a little shorter than the specs, but will still fit a long thermarest pad. It held up well in heavy steady rain and no rain got inside. My mesh has a few places on the door that look like the first reviewer's tent, but no problems with it. I think the mesh stretched a little and just looks like that. No bugs get in though, so I'm not sure why the first person had a problem. NF has lifetime warranty also, so I'm not sure why he had problems with NF. Tent packs very small and fits inside even a day pack, which I use for solo overnights. Plenty wide inside for one person and all gear. Not sure if I would try sleeping two in the tent, unless smaller couple that likes to snuggle. Side door is good and allows easy in and out. The vaulted ends are great, as most tents lose height at the ends. Can't use trekking poles on the ends as they don't fit. Overall very pleased and it is my go to tent unless my teenage son is with me.
