A slightly narrower version of the existing SS2 :

just under 800g plus tour sticks.

This looks very nice.
How much will it cost?
Will a 1p version be released?
The corners with the struts appear to be open? Are they closeable?

The cost hasn't been finalised as yet.
There is a built in cover for that corner vent.
The Li size is in between the SS sil 1 and the 2.
I don't think that a 1 person version would be much lighter than that.
That was the problem with the Silnylon version of the 1 .
It was harder to make it significantly lighter and smaller than the 2.

I like that the strut end vents can be covered and that the vestibules are fully zippered.
It will be nice to see the official floor plan when it comes out. From my basic calcs it looks like the outer dimensions of the SS Li are similar to the SS1? If that is the case I see this as a positive.

The floor area is a bit smaller than with the SS2 but still takes 1 wide mat and 1 standard type (or two wide overlapping a bit).
