I would have to agree with genepires on this. A NF VE-25 and Megamid combo is a pretty good tent set up for the West Buttress of Denali (if that is your intended route). Freakishly light 3 person tents are cool and useful, but unless you intend to pop on over to the W. Rib (or something more difficult...)I would save your money and go with the VE-25 and the Megamid (BTW, the Meagmid Light is just that- it's crazy light). If one of your buddies is opposed to sleeping in the cook tent, you could always opt for the larger MH Trango 4. I think the Trango 4 is not that much heavier than the VE-25 and dispersed between three climbers, the weight is quite reasonable for the West Buttress.
