Interesting Tents

This is a quick follow-up to my article "Designing the Perfect Tent". I've recently come across three interesting looking tents that might be good for touring, in addition to the Exped Auriga Mesh, which I mentioned in the last article.

Nusku 2P
This is a very interesting tent that I just came across. It's similar to the Exped Auriga Mesh in many ways, but unfortunately has a third pole. It's also a little on the heavy side. An advantage over the Auriga Mesh might be the longer rainfly.  
Hilleburg is generally considered to be one of the best brands in the business. This tent has many of the features I like, is available in green, but has a third pole and is quite expensive.  
Space Explorer
This tent used to be available in Green, but now appears to only be available in yellow. It's designed for winter use, has a fly-first pitch and snow/dust flaps. A disadvantage would be the single vestibule.
