Verified Buyer Reviewed by Eric from Montana on Thursday, July 21, 2016Good for the later parts of the evening. Doesn't blind you when turning it on in the middle of the night.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Farhomthat from Central IL on Monday, June 13, 2016Does not have white light capability. Lightweight.
Reviewed by MissingMoss from Outside on Tuesday, May 3, 2016Obviously, there haven't been any new Starlets made for a while, but I'm sure there are still plenty of them being used. I am a little astonished that MSR didn't keep making this design (although I am glad to see the Stardome live on as the Fury, and the Big Dipper live on as the Stormking). There isn't much on the market that uses quite the same approach (2 poles crossing twice in a small tent); the only tent like this that I have seen of late is the Easton Rimrock 1P which (at least, design-wise) resembles a smaller Starlet.
Anyhow, if you are seeking a footprint / ground sheet for a Starlet, the Big Agnes Fly Creek SL2 or UL2 is a pretty good fit.
