by fromAwesome tent I did as much research as I could before I bought this tent. I chose this tent because I camp with my gf and I needed something light (I am carrying the bulk of the stuff), comfortable and reliable (she is one cold, wet night from swearing camping off forever). I wanted a tent that was light and packed small because I usually bring a hammock set-up along as a luxury item and I use a small backpack. I also wanted something weatherproof because I live in Korea which has a monsoon season. I can fit this tent, its footprint, 2 exped air mats, a 0 degree sleeping bag, a hammock, its suspension system, and a super fluffy camping pillow into a 28 liter bag. You haven't experienced a hot, humid night until you have camped in East Asia. Airflow was very important to me. The abiltiy to unclip the fly very quickly and roll it up on top of the tent was a huge selling point. Also, on sunny days, keeping the fly rolled up protects it from sun damage and prolongs its life. Set up is very quick. It is extremely easy to move the tent once the poles are in it (which takes less than a minute). If it is raining, I can set this up under a tree or shelter and simply pick it up and place it where I want after. The stuff sack has a separate compartment for the fly in case it is wet. This thing is engineered really well with lots of little features like color coding, toggles to fold back the doors, clips on the fly, etc. It's not perfect, however. I punctured one of the pole sleeves setting it up in a hurry. I'm a bit more careful now. The tear didn't really hamper the tent's functionality, but I was a little bummed because all the other parts of the tent are so bomb proof. Also, I wouldnt call this 100% free standing. The foot ends of this need to be staked out for support, so you have to jerry-rig it a bit if you are camping on the beach. I would say this tent is best for 2 people. 3 people would probably mean 3 exped sized mats (Amazing product btw) touching side to side. It is very comfortable for 2 people and probably worth the extra money and weight if you camp with someone who isnt a serious backpacker. On a rainy day when you are stuck inside the tent you will appreciate have a bit more room. Lastly, during the times I have had this thing battened down for cold weather, the inside of the fly is always wet. No moisture makes it to the inner tent due to the design, but it is slightly annoying to wait for the fly to dry when I am packing up. I'm being a bit picky with the condensation because the trade off is no cold wind got through and no water got inside the sleeping area. Just be sure to unclip the fly and flip it over while you are packing up if you don't want to deal with a wet fly later.
