For taller folk?
had look and unless I am mistaken, the fly still has a gap of around 2inches when it is fully tightened down. The option is there to slide it further up to allow greater ventilation I think
Still looks like a nice tent though
Dave, do you know the arrangements for the pole ends? If you cut a total of 4" off the pole and adjust the pole end arrangements accordingly, that should bring the tent walls down to the ground and let's face it, that extra headroom Henry boasts about would be wasted on you.
If you're going to buy one from Henry you'll have to ask him for more pegging points anyway, 'cos just two pegs in UK conditions ain't on, so you might as well ask him for the pole length mods too.
1) **** off !
2) I had had the same thought about the poles myself. Having asked Henry previously about doing a bespoke longer cut fly before (no was the answer) this could work.
You can put guys on the pole by the look of it; why are two pegs 'not enough' for UK conditions - depends where you pitch dunnit?
All of these types of shelters are a compromise for the UK really.....and it weighs the same as a Laser Comp...

To test the "shorter pole" set up, you can just dig a hole under the pole tips. Be prepared to complain about condensation if you do that...
and if you do that then when the weather is ok, hitch up the fly on the pole to allow more airflow and cinch down as required/for the night. you still have 2 vents at the top of the fly
Franco, what do you think of the Contrail. Would you feel good using it on an extended hike?
Edit: n/m I read the rest of your post above. Thanks for the info.
