    Disclaimer: I just got this tent and haven’t used it outside yet.

    Super easy setup right out of the bag; color-coded and perfect fit for the poles all around. The design is simple and elegant- no bells and whistles, aka less things that could go wrong/break!

    I love that the tent is a perfect rectangle. Two people can fit comfortably in the tent, and there are enough pockets inside to hold valuables.

    The color is somewhat dark with the rainfly, so I plan to get some reflective tape to stick somewhere on the tent for finding it at dusk.

    I think this is a great value for a sturdy and smart tent. Definitely a good deal for someone who is looking to share the weight load with another backpacker for weekend hikes!

    I purchased my first Celestial 2 tent last year for backpacking. It has worked so well we just bought a second Celestial 2 tent for our son who is also an avid backpacker. The tent sets up easily and is very stable in windy conditions. I backpack with my 50lb. dog frequently and the tent is perfect for the two of us. The netting on the tent prevents condensation problems and allows for star gazing when you don't need the rainfly. The vents on the rainfly work well to keep air circulating in the tent. The details in this tent make it a winner in our books!

    I wanted a 1 person tent for car camping. Setup is really fast. Throw in a single or double size air mattress - inflate - and you still have room at your head or foot for an overnight bag or pack - Ideal for me. Full coverage fly, sturdy poles, good ventilation and 2 doors are a bonus. I've been in all kinds of weather from 100 degree heat to full on downpours and the tent has performed perfectly. Wind blasts from the side will try to push it in - but they will fail. Haven't had it out in the snow but I'm sure it will shed snow like a champ. Had this for 3 years now and used it probably 15 - 20 times. Still in like new condition. Replaces a Moss Starlet I paid 4X as much for in the 80's. Features on Celestial are better and durability is on par or better. Enough room for 2 - GREAT for 1. Buy good stakes and the footprint and for $150 or less you're good for a long time.

    I set it up in the living room when I got it home. Super easy and self-intuitive. The floor is thin so I recommend a ground tarp to protect the bottom and a ground cloth of some type to protect the tent floor from shoes and dog toenails. Suitable for two people of normal size (170 lbs) and a beagle size pooch with some gear. I’ll be using it for motorcycle, airplane and car camping. With rain fly on it immediately started to warm up. Appears to be a comfortable tent and a wise purchase. I’m satisfied so far.

    I bought this for my sister and her large dog who often go backpacking together. We set the tent up and were impressed with the ease of assembly and space. It’s a quite long tent that you’d have enough room for the dog at your feet along with a pack and even another person. There was nice storage pockets. We were super excited about the fact that the tent has windows that can be zipped and unzipped from the inside. I feel like thera will be much better ventiliation and temperature control now that we can close the tent up without getting out of the tent to unzip the rain fly. Although you have the option to be completely covered by the rain fly.
