After a new 1 person ML tent - what do people use these days?!

Always wanted an MSR - Elixir or Hubba NX? Elixir is a fair bit heavier but may be warmer (less mesh) and is around £150 less than a Hubba.

Nordisk Telemark 2 - extra space so that you can get yourself organised is worthwhile.

I'm no hillwalker but have used my 1 person Hubba NX for a lot of bike touring down to about minus 5 degrees C (though I was cold at this temp, but that's as much to do with my sleeping bag!). Works well for me, I like the fact that I can sit up in it and has enough porch space for panniers/other bags and you'd probably get a reasonable size backpack in there. You're right that it can be a bit draughty though, with all that mesh.

I've a Hubba.  Really like it in warm conditions.  

Don't trust it when the wind is up unfortunately.  Not many guy points. 

I take an Akto when weather is likely but not a huge fan of that either, found it flappy and noisy.  Not used it much so maybe better pitching would help.
