I assume your beaks would follow the Grizz method??
Also, why do you have to choose between overlap and vestibule?
If the beaks are sized right, it seems you could set-up either way depending on the conditions or your mood at the time.
Couldn't a vestibule model be set-up overlapping??
The picture I put up was an old prototype using zippers in which the panels were sewn on. The sewn on doors will look like the ones you see in the picture but without zippers in lieu of overlapping panels.
The Grizz beak is as you say attached to the tarp ridgeline D ring and staked out at the bottom "behind" the tarp side stake outs.
The vestibule model has a lot more material so that a moderate tarp pitch will have sufficient overlap yet create a vestibule.
The flat model with the same tarp pitch overlaps sufficiently yet does not create a vestibule and uses less material.
To answer your question...they are both overlapping.
