I have not had the opportunity to use my Hammerhead 2 tent outside. I did set it up in the middle of my living room the first day that I received it. My six year old grand daughter and I slept in it. We loved it. I intend to use this tent for backpacking. It does appear to be well made and ideal for backpacking and flexible for different types of weather. I loved the two doors and vestibule areas for keeping gear dry on rainy nights without having to pack gear inside the tent. There is lot of room for two people with high ceiling area.
The cons are: As with most tents today, it did not come with a footprint. I was able to find one at local outfitter store. The total pack with footprint is a little heavy, around 7 pounds. The weight may not be a con, since can be reduced for dry, warm nights. The weight may be a pro since the tent is flexible to be used in different types of weather. I personally like the fact that I have these options.
As stated above, I have not used tent yet. The real test for me will be how warm & dry I stay on those cold, rainy nights.
