I could carry a two person, four feet of headroom Black Diamond tent with mesh and full door and window plus awning, the green pyramid tent to park a couple of bikes in, AND a tarp for cooking and covering the picnic table with, and still be at a couple of pounds less weight than the MSR Velo.

That Terra Nova is Really nice, i wonder how spacious it is inside? The total fabric content must be low, because even ultralite fabrics are weighty as the square yards add up....

seems close to some of the Hillebergs but almost a kilo lighter than a comprable Nallo or whichever model is similar..... wow, expensive, yes. but for an expedition quality tent that is not unreasonable.
