Good quality, features, and weight

It really surprised me how well thought out the tent was, the features it provided, and the relatively light weight for the price I paid.

The tent isn't an ultralight tent, but is still very light for a two person tent at 2,350g (tent, fly, poles). To lose any more weight would have required a large jump in price. One thing I'm considering is cutting the window covers out on the doors; the top of the doors are mesh, and have a nylon cover which zips in place behind them. This only provides privacy, and the other two walls of the tent are mesh, so they're kind of pointless. Removing them would eliminate about 5sqft of fabric, plus two zippers.

It's a true two person tent, with enough room for myself at 6'1" and my friend at 6'2". The vestibules are a little small, but there's enough space for a pack and boots, plus there's are two of them. A gear loft is included which is a really nice touch.
