[pct-l] Vestibules are they worth the weight?

Realizing I'm talking to many Ultra-light backpackers, just curious
on benefits of the much larger vestibule for those that use tents and not
use tarps only. Is the double area worth the 20% increase in weight?

If one had a choice. Which Sierra Design tent would you choose

name       sqft    vestibule/sqft   wt lbs
orion      35          7.5             5
meteor lt  40          14              6

m vs o     14%         87%            20%

Rates Orion the top of the class.

Thanks, Tom Caggiano
