    I thought I read they use 7D fabric, that's insane to me, but double check this

    15D is better but still pretty light for a floor, I do really like the look of the Two, being able to open both doors and let the air blow through.

    It was my 1st choice if I had decided to stay silnylon/silpoly. Decided to go dcf and get a duplex as knowing myself well enough, I would have eventually gone dcf for the weight savings. It is pretty similar to the SMD Lunar Duo which I used for several years, GG makes a good product and it should serve you well.

    I'm using The One on my AT thru. As far as the material, I don't have to baby it, but I do recommend using a ground cloth. While the floor is thicker than the walls/ceiling, I did end up getting two very small holes in it (patched with tenacious tape, no issues thus far).

    You will, of course, run across condensation issues. But the tent dries quite quickly in the sun during lunch breaks.

    The hikers I've talked to that have the Two really liked it. One was a solo hiker and it was like a palace for them, so spacious.
