Excerpt: The Black Diamond OneShot tent weighs 1380g; small packed size; pitches easily from the inside; roomy inside for sleeping and gear storage; large mesh vents; interior pockets. But Epic fabric is only water-resistant; single-skin design is prone to condensation; no porch for storage and cooking.
