    Mountain Hardwear Skyledge 2 DP Tent is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb tent, not for tall folks I used this tent extensively and in a wide variety of conditions. Overall, I think this is a very good product, with a few exceptions. The good: Absolutely bomb proof. Recently experienced 50+ MPH winds and snow and rain all night long, the tent didn't flinch. Properly guyed out and you will have zero problems, no flapping of fabric, nothing. Just a perfect weather proof shelter. The materials are top notch, the pole layout creates a very strong frame (much more so than hub designs) and not a drip of moisture made its way from the rain and snow that I experienced. The no-drip over each vestibule door works extremely well. The vestibules are ample for stuffing a 60L pack or so underneath and still have room for ingress/egress. Guying out the loops at the head and foot, and leaving 4 inches of opening at the top of each vestibule door, should handle all of your condensation issues. The problems I have with this tent are mostly derived from my stature. I'm 6'2" 195 lbs and my head and feet brush the mesh (and strains it) at both ends of the tent, even before I get into my bag. Ignore that 85" length, that's an external measurement. The mesh slope at the head and foot are so severe that you lose some space at either end, as I discovered. Also, this tent tapers from an interior width of 48 inches at the head to just less than 40 inches at the foot. Two side by side Neo Air All Seasons squeeeeeze into the foot space. I understand that in the search for lighter weights, tent manufacturers are making their tents not just out of lighter materials but the interior space is shrinking as well. I can't recommend this tent for anyone over 6"1" and maybe even 6'0" unless you're planning to use it as a solo tent. Two guys under 5'10" would be fine, or a guy and a girl would really enjoy it. Knowing its size limitations, I still feel this is a great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I could live in this tent! I cannot say enough about how great this tent is! I originally bought this tent because it's very light weight and I was using it for bike touring. The tent sets up so easy I can do it with my eyes closed...or in the dark without a head lamp. The two doors make it great for when you have a companion with you and the large vestibules are perfect for keeping shoes/bike panniers/gear out of the elements. I have had the tent for 4 years now and it has held up great. I've camped on the beach, in the desert, in the mountains, in the summer, in the winter, in torrential downpours, in high winds, by myself, with a friend, and with my dog,. Mountain hardware also has excellent customer service. The original version of this tent was recalled and they were super helpful and quick getting me a new one before a trip I had. I've lost a pole and recently another broke. They replaced the broken pole free of charge despite the tent being 4 years old. I really can't say enough good things about this tent. I could live in it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome tent! I've had this tent for over 3 years and it has been incredibly reliable the entire time. I've taken it on several backpacking trips across the West and also on a road trip across the country and back. I usually carry it intentionally as a 2 person, so as a single it can be quite spacious (not necessarily a bad thing). I don't do much during the winter, so I can't vouch for 4th season. With a stuff sack, it can be compacted to just bigger than a softball (without poles) and it takes about 5 minutes to unpack and set up. The rain fly adds extra room on both sides which is perfect for additional or dirty gear. No tears, no rips, no zipper issues, no leaks.
