TNF stuff can be a bit hit & miss in my opinion & others I've spoken too. But when they get it right it's up there with the best.
I prefer all in one pitching. With all in one you have to be real anal about packing not to get the inner wet from condensation on the fly but it's never been a hassle for me - always looks worse than it is when the inner gets wet. Mop up the worse of it if required with a Buff & get on with it. Same with inner first in our wet climate. Even if the inner gets wet it will shrug off most of any rain while you pitch & anything that does soak through isn't going to present any issues.
Even with all vents open I was never happy with the amount of condensation in the Akto. My mate dubbed it the 'Swedish Dew Trap'. The Hubba Hubba HP is better although it gets some criticism this side of the pond due to fly hem being quite high of the ground, letting the wind through. I've only had it a year. If that becomes a problem for me I'll just switch into the m
Macpac a little earlier.
