Quick setup and take down, Fast-pitch configuration allows you leave the tent-body behind saving space, weight and time. Mountain Hardwear constructs products with excellent quality. I can't wait to take it out on the trail.

    This tent was exactly what I was looking for and came exactly as described. I couldnt be happier, now i need to get off the computer and put it to use!!
    I've set it up and it is the perfect size for one person with enough headroom to sit up and move around, and enough space to sprawl out. Two people would work fine, but only really because there are the two ample vestibules to store gear. You would enjoy it if you were comfortable being in contact with eachother... or perhaps brought too light of a sleeping bag, but hey, that's every 2 person tent out there.

    I like this tent. The color (humboldt green) is fantastic! The tent looks nice and blends in nicely with surroundings.

    This is the first ten I have had without sleeves for the poles. What a difference that makes! This thing sets up really fast the first time.

    The tent packs down into a reasonable size and there's room to spare in the stuff sack. I can fit the footprint in there no problem. If you were to divvy up all the gear between a couple people, it wouldn't take up any pack space at all.

    The pitch light setup is nice and works well. I usually on stake out the vestibules and it seems to be enough. The tent poles included are low grade, but light. The vestibules are ample and function very well. It is super nice to have a door for each person.

    On sizing: this is a small tent. If you sleep head to foot with your tent mate it works well. The mesh storage pockets suggest this layout is best. You need to be comfortable with the 2nd person.

    Pros: Super easy setup, lightweight (although a bit heavier than true back country), rain fly can be used alone, excellent coverage and floor design keeps water out.

    Cons: More a 1.5 person, probably too open for late Fall comfort.

    Set up first time in 5 minutes, take-down just as fast. Good total weight including rain fly, footprint, stakes, poles. Great structural integrity. Massive doors on two sides, with fly adding about a 10 sq. ft. vestibule at each. Exceptional water protection and ventilation. Open design could be too much when temp. drops much below freezing, but have not tested that. Good space at end of bedding for a medium backpack. Floor space is narrow - two standard inflatable T-Rest pads completely filled floor width, so for two bodies, works best head-to-toe for some more shoulder room. Integrated small stow sacks on opposite ends suggest that was planned.

About Mountain Hardwear

Starting back in 1993, a small group of outdoor industry mavericks broke away from the pack to follow a less-traveled path. From the very beginning, the primary goal of Mountain Hardwear was to create an outdoor gear brand with a sharp focus on technology-driven design, superior performance and hardcore reliability. The result of this function-first mentality has been an array of incredible Mountain Hardwear jackets, clothing, tents, backpacks, sleeping bags and accessories. Today, after more than two decades of industry-leading innovation, Mountain Hardwear continues to set new benchmarks for dependability in the toughest conditions on the planet.
