I have used this tent for 30 days in 0-10 degrees C with only occaisional rain. The Tenshi is made of of a medium weight material with a rubber like coating on the inside which has a very solid, durable feel to it. This single skin tent needs to be well vented otherwise the walls will be wet with condensation. There is a big vent on the rear wall aka the escape hatch, as you can exit through it if you have to.There are three more small vents plus the entry all with fly screen. The tent is too short for a six foot person and too narrow for two people. So it is best for one who can sleep diagonally. In rain/snow it needs the vestibule otherwise you'll have water coming in( when you open the door) and you can't see out. The fabric doesn't allow much light in so without the vestibule you'll feel closed in very quick. The footprint is small so it's easy to find a spot for it and quick to pitch. This is best done by sitting in front of the tent and aiming the poles into the rivets in the corner (as shown on You tube).This tent is best for mountaineering/ winter. At 2500 gr with vestibule it is overkill for warmer weather. In conclusion, a well designed ,durable, beautifully made tent best for the solo, cold weather enthusiast.
