2 person 4 season tents. Latest and greatest? 18-Jul-2016 At 10:10:17 AM cruze
My Minaret is going strong after 12 years of good use. Plenty of trips above snowline in winter in NZ. Very warm tent and bombproof. I am 6 foot and it is good for me. My wife is 5'8" and the shorter side is good for her. The current model is probably lighter than mine.

Things to bear in mind:
- If you are truly above the snowline then the vestibule area can be dug out into a pit to increase vestibule volume;
- single skin tents are awesome in a very small niche of use - low external relative humidity with a temperature gradient inside warm to outside cold. In everything else I think you would regret the loss of the 1kg in weight. You might be OK with only a single person inside and the opportunity to dry the tent out each day (ie get sun);
-most single skin tents I have tried are built for tall people only if they sleep curled up;
- If you are truly above the snowline then tent pegs get replaced with bags (even plastic shopping bags) which reduces weight.
