Nemo Meta 2p vs SMD Lunar Duo

I have been researching a new shelter for backpacking. Right now I have a Coleman 1 man Cadence. I really need more room, but I did not want to get a 4 lb tent.

The next problem is price. I really did not want to spend $499 for the MSR Carbon Reflex, so I got it down to the Nemo Meta 2p or Six Moon Design Lunar Duo.

Also, I really like the idea of being enclosed, so I am not a real fan of the tarp.

Can anyone give me some advice on the Nemo Meta 2p and/or the SMD Lunar Duo. Thanks for the advice in advance.

The SMD Lunar Duo is a nice shelter. I, personally, prefer its dome-like (rounded) shape over the more pronounced a-frame style of the other. And the Duo's color (option) is a bit more subdued.

I have not used the Lunar Duo but recently purchased a Nemo Meta 2P. It is a solid, well-build tent. It has plenty of space for two and has a nice solid pitch. It is light for the space but by no means 'ultralight". For all around 3 to 3+ season use, it fits my needs in northern New England.

I use the Nemo Meta 2. I had the 1P but prefer the room of the 2P. When I bring my dog(Golden Retriever) there is adequate room for me, our gear and her. I wish it was a little lighter but, it is a good solid tent.
