I've owned a lot of car camping tents, but this was the first backpacking tent I've purchased. I've used it on three trips now and am very happy with my choice. The tent is very easy to put up and provides good storage space under the vestibule and in the storage loft and end pockets. I have camped in cold (30F) and windy weather and have been very pleased with the stability and lack of any condensation. The only downside to this tent is that it is slightly over 5lbs. I have saved a couple ounces by swapping out the hook-style stakes for the lighter x-shaped stakes and will also try the hollow rounds. Having said this, I think the advantages of this tent make it well worth the extra pound or two - especially when it is large enough to comfortably sleep two adults, who can split the weight on the hike.
