Conclusion: In terms of design, I can't help thinking the OneShot is clearly better than the Firstlight—and yet, the Firstlight may well be the better solo tent. For an extra four ounces or so, the Firstlight nearly doubles the OneShot's interior volume. Both shelters are similar enough otherwise to raise a interesting question: do you really want to give up that much room to save four or five ounces?
