I've got a couple of different tent designs I've been testing that I like better than anything else out there right now, but they're both floor-less.

I know you're a fan of free standing floorless. Is what you're testing along those lines?  Also have you used the anklet or similar with a standard tent fly/poles? If so did it work out?

Take a look at Tarptent.com

Good stuff. I like mine. Basic colors.

One is floorless semi-free standing, and the other is a 1.5lb emergency shelter that works fine if not ideal for ultralight packing. They both use a concept similar to the anklet, but better because it's integral to the design. The anklet is a great idea but most double wall tents don't have the fly going all the way to the ground for ventilation purposes. Good rain protection with an anklet, but not weather (wind, cold, etc.) protection with a ~4" gap all the way around. If you could pair one with a fly that went ALL the way to the ground it would be a good setup.

I also like the Tarptent Moment DW. I have tested mine in all kinds of weather and it has held up well. I run it floorless from time to time when the weather and bugs are not really an issue.
