So whatever that entails... not too heavy, not too large, comfy, fits in yellow panniers :)

I've got a pair of panniers if anyone would like them. Red & black Como sports brand. Came with my MTB, oldish but never really used. (you would need a rear rack)

there is another Li coming (later this month) but the one in the panniers is an update of an existing design.
Henry is having a short holiday right now ( bush cabin...) so I expect something when he gets back.

The StratoSpire Li (DCF/Cuben fiber) is out now.
On FaceBook but I don't know how to link directly to that.
Just under 800g (plus your sticks...)

BTW, the tent inside those panniers is not this one...

will be very interested to see cost when it's released.
A couple of dags and their pooch who live by the beach in their home named 'Dag Sands', of course.

That tent is now official.
from the What's new pages :
It’s about time we updated a classic! The 2019 Double Rainbow has more head/shoulder room due to a 33% wider top strut, and it is chock full of features. It’s got a higher bathtub floor, lower fly edge to help stop splash, stuffable body (top strut is now separate foldable pole), waterproof vestibule zippers, integrated gear pockets along zippered doors, and a higher water pressure rating; we think we can safely say the 2019 DR is on top of its game and ready for anything you throw at it.

Weight: 42 oz / 1191 g
Floor width: 50 in / 127 cm

Ordering opens September 19, 2018
and there is a video of it , Henry putting his drone to some good use :
