    In looking a bit more at the specs and diagrams I can see that the SS2 is actually quite a bit roomier at ground/sleeping level. The Jack Rabbit SL 2 tapers inward (52" head -->42" foot) whereas the...

    Looking at the specs for the Jack Rabbit SL 2, it certainly looks to me like the SS2 would feel quite a bit roomier. The SS2 has quite a bit more interior height and volume.

    It is true that moving to nanoseeum mesh might save about 1.5 ounces but, yes, the solid fabric is more durable. It also provides a more effective condensation barrier--droplets cannot get...

    If you're a trekking pole user, I would recommend the Notch over the Contrail for an AT thruhike. The double doors/double wall design offers much better performance and flexibility at the same...

    It is an OPTIONAL interior. Yes, the mesh interior certainly offers better views and it's the standard interior for the Notch. The partial solid interior is better suited to cold, windy weather and...

    Yes, like the Scarp and Hogback, the StratoSpire has a full clip-in/clip-out interior. You can leave the interior attached for setup/takedown or install/detach it separately.

    Jbrecon2,

    The Moment sets up completely taut and there's reason why you should expect anything less for you. Call me (or send a phone number and I'll call you).
