[pct-l] No free lunch

 Those single wall Keltys are light and may be good tents in good weather., 
but there is no free lunch. If the single wall is waterproof, your damp 
breath will make it a clammy, damp mess when the temp. drops to 40 degree 
with light rain. Single walls are best  at high attitude with snow as it's 
main enemy. It the Northwest, even the single wall bibler breathable tents 
turn into worthless swimming pools. If your going to be it real weather, 
stick to the tried and true rain fly system. In 60 degree summer Sierra 
weather, anything looks good.
