Question Nemo OBI tent

Has anyone used any of the Nemo Equipment tents? The OBI 1 person in particular? Any information will be gratefully received.

I had a Nemo Morpho tent for a while. The Morpho is the kind with the air bladders instead of poles. It was well built but pricey!
I liked the tent pretty well when I first bought it but the more I used it the less fond of it I was.
It was a single wall tent with the door on one end. I did not like the ventilation and the wall sweated pretty bad. The air bladders worked good but were kind of a novelty. The tent was heavy and did not pack as small as I wanted.
I ended up with an REI two man tent. It has a door on each side instead of the end. The ventilation, ease of setup, and pack ability all work better for me.

I like my Nemo Obi. Unless you are very tiny I recommend getting the two man version, as even it is a snug fit for one human and gear you may want inside.
