is the 2 person version advisable for a thru hike. I will be hiking the PCT next year and am interested in this tent. I will be hiking solo but tend to find 1 person tents to be too cramped. My concern is that, without being able to see the tent in person, the 2p version would reduce potential camp spots. I am otherwise looking at more conventional 2 person tents such as big agnes tiger wall, but much prefer the design and features of the xmid.

We have a next gen version of the 1P that is launching in a few weeks and is more spacious than the original. You can sign up to be notified at DurstonGear.com because these tents are no longer sold on Drop. https://durstongear.com/product/x-mid-1p The 2P is of course more spacious yet. It is a larger tent because it's a nicely sized 2P tent rather than fairly small like the Tiger Wall. That does mean a larger footprint, but it's still fine for the PCT. My wife and I hiked the PCT in 2014 with a TarpTent StratoSpire 2 that is just as large. Occasionally you have to look around a bit more but it was never a big issue.
