    This tent is not ultralight at 3kg, but since we got it as a warranty replacement for our delaminated Limelight, I thought I give you a quick look. Making this video was pretty helpful, as watching it back I realised that the shape was not optimal and I needed to make sure it was laid out as a sharp rectangle.

    Looks great and I'm sure after another pitch or two you will get it right :thumbsup:...

    Yup, it shouldn't be that difficult, but this was fiddlier than the Limelight even though they are very similar tents.

    Hmm, I watched another retailer video of the setup and they pegged the floor in first before putting in the poles. That might make a bit more accurately rectangular.

    The following info is probably completely useless to anyone else, but there are 2 versions of Tungsten; old and new. The updates from the old to new are:

    - change from door vents to single vent (like in Vapor)
    - hooks keeping inner up to clips (like in Vapor)
    - cross pole fixture changed from Limelight style to no fixture in the centre (like in Vapor)
    - cross pole ends changed from pin to sleeve (might have this in Vapor too, if I didn't notice it)
    - inner pockets changed from sides to ends, and doubled (Vapor has single side pockets)

    So Vapor seems like a hybrid between the old Tungsten and the new Tungsten.

    Or re-peg when poles are in pulling all 4 corners neat & tight...
