Anyone ever used a Kelty Crestone 1?

I was thinking of doing some self contained touring but really didn't want to carry my free standing tent due to weight considerations. I have seen several cyclists using Solo bivy type tents and saqw the Crestone 1 and wondered if anyone has used this tent before? If they have did they encounter any problems with it not being free standing? Wardie

I have no experience with this tent, but since nobody else has commented, I figured I would throw in my 2 cents. If I were going to give up the space and convenience of a 2 man free standing tent, I would expect it to weigh a lot less than 4 lbs. You can get a decent free standing 2 man tent for that weight and price. has several 1 man tents that are lighter and cheaper.
