    ENO Ember

    Has anyone tried out the ENO Ember yet? Judging only from the meager info on their website, it doesn't appear to stack up well to the KAQ, but that's an opinion based on pretty much nothing. There isn't much more than a bad photo on their website.

    If the insulation material is the same - it would be warmer, being that it uses a silnylon shell that would block all wind, lowering heat loss. That could cause moisture problems for some people, but not most. The HH supershelter uses sil as well and has had good results.

    They use 70d for the liner material... pretty heavy for that purpose. But ENO is more concerned with durability than weight, and that's an understandable compromise. Just one many backpackers these days are not willing to make.

    ...hoping someone's actually got one and can comment with more useful information...
