Rab Ellement 2 vs Black Diamond BetaLight?

Hey folks, I'm not finding anything on the forum using standard search tools.

I'm looking for comments on pros/cons of the Rab Element 2 vs the Black Diamond BetaLight.

The primary use will be for fast and light ski touring in the winter. I have a tarp for warmer conditions and want something that can be easily pitched close to the snow to stop drafts.

Cost is a factor and I'd like to keep this under $200 if possible. I'm tall, at 6'2" so fit and liveability bear on this. Ease of pitch is also important.
