Just ordered the Golite Xanadu 1: http://www.golite.com/Product/proddetail.aspx?p=SH6110&s=2

It is going to be put in use during wintertime in the mountains.

Any comments/experiences with this tent? :)

There is a review of the two person version on www.backpackgeartest.org, I believe. The criticism has been that the mesh door and vents can let in spindrift - mostly the doors. The vent cannot be completely closed but can be guyed downward. I just went through a process of considering all of the Golite line of tents and ended up with a Shangri-La as the vents are covered completely.

In any event, it looks like a great shelter - enjoy!

Hmm... That doesn't look too good :-?

Guess I'll have to dig down a bit I guess.

Thanks for the heads up. :)
