Good tent for the money

This tent served me very well during 2 Alaskan gales and I look forward to many more trips with it. It is very weatherproof, comfortable, and very well ventilated for a 4 season tent.
However it is quite heavy for 2 people and I would not want to have to set it up above treeline in a howling blizzard, although once it was up it would be bombproof. Setup takes at least 10 min solo, about 7-8 min w/2, under ideal conditions. This is too long and complicated for a true 4 season high altitude mountaineering tent, however that's not what I got it for. For 4 season general camping it is perfect. I mostly use it for all-season sea kayaking trips, and it is excellent for that. I really like that you can close it up completely in bad weather, but still have it be open and airy when it is hot. Also if you have the time to stake it out, it can stand up to almost any amount of wind. A great bomber tent at a reasonable price.
