    Love this tent. It is light-weight, durable and easy to assemble. No leaks.

    With the deal flyer discount, you will not get a better tent deal (about $90 at 25% off). Easy to set up, light enough for backpacking, especially if one person carries fly and tent body, another poles and stakes. Best sized for a couple, will be tight for two larger people. The tent has decent vestibule space, which you'll need in wet conditions. The tent doesn't have much storage space inside due to the non-rectangle design (wide at head height, narrow near the feet). I've used it repeatedly, and the only design floor is the triangle atop the tent. The two main poles cross and a third pole attaches the back of the top of the tent to form this triangle. Water can pool here in heavy rain if the tent is not pitched tight. Make sure to have this area tightly pitched, and have guy lines attached to the back attachments to avoid this problem.

    I really love the design of this tent, and I set mine up alone in about ten minutes. The two door design on both the tent and the rain fly is really net, and this tent is very light as well.

    Great price on a lightweight backpacking tent with 2 doors. I have yet to use it but I have set it up in my garage by myself and it took only 5-10 minutes. Lightweight material and packs small. I plan to use it in Yosemite this summer. I knocked off one star until use it and check out the quality. Otherwise, it looks like a great tent.

    Double vestibule design is a must for a 2 person tent to properly accommodate 2 people. Great weight for the price

    Although advertised as a 2-person tent, it is a little on the small side to accommodate 2 people, plus gear. However, it is a great size for one person. It holds up very well in the driving rain, and this tent is easy to put up.

    I've owned this tent for three seasons, now, and it's seen it's share of bad weather, direct sunlight, humidity and occasional hard use -- think; rolling into it with a jogging start as a thundershower bursts from the heavens. Otherwise I've taken good care of it. It's easy to put up, and sturdy once pitched well. That comes to the reason for only four stars -- it takes a full nine stakes to get it tight enough for winds 20 mph or greater. That's often enough for my neck of the woods that I always stake it down fully. It has great ventilation. In the product image showing the rain fly, see the orange, triangular flap? That can be guyed out to reveal a patch of mesh. At the top of the tent, there's another vent that is supported by a short pole wrapped in touch-fastener. It also serves to batten it down to block the wind. You'd guy the other vent flap straight down. Caution yourself against too tight a pitch, especially at the vestibules; it can cause the zipper to leak, and the leak is above and inside the bathtub floor, so... About the vestibules... I daresay you could get a small adult, uncomfortably mind you, but a small adult under there in a pinch. Certainly large enough for pack and boots. And six or seven other things. The side doors are a blessing and has me scratching my head over why they aren't a standard feature on any tent. They're large, easy to open and close, and haven't given me a problem. Even after waking to very desperately needing to see a man about a horse, I've given it a tug or a pull unbecoming someone who cares for their gear. But I had to go. There it is. And they still work fine. This is a 4-season tent... Sorry, let me make a distinction, here, that a friend proposed: Many of us backpack in every season, and use the same tent year-round. But there is what he's called fourth season backpacking -- hardcore, cold weather, altitude, ten days, whatever it is. For this season backpacking, which few of us do, there is gear that can withstand the rigors of backpacking beyond the ten-trip, two- or three-night, milder weather backpacker. So, after all that, I've been camping with this tent in winter, in up to six inches of new snow, moderate winds. I did feel compelled one night to clear the top off as the snow was really accumulating quickly. It's reasonably light weight, and if you split it, each can carry a little over two pounds. All-in-all, a great tent for a good price.
