I would certainly check out the Nomad Lite by Wanderlust Outdoor Gear
http://wanderlustgear.com where Kurt offers his design to rival anything out
on the market.  I have talked to Kurt and investigated his tent.  Having
been searching for a good bivy, I am considering the Nomad Lite for my next
long hike.  Lightweight, good ventilation, fast setup, and roomy.
