I have used the Slumberjack, and if you get the summer version, with
more netting you get less condensation. The summer version has about
100% more netting and allows the moisture to escape. As for really
wet weather I bought a Walrus 1 1/2 man tent ( believe it is a
Swift.) Works great in wet weather and weighs only 3.8 lbs. Held up
in driving rain that turned to wet snow then ice.
