by fromI would recommend this tent I've had the tent for 2 months now but have not used it backpacking. I've set it up numerous time in the back yard and it just gets easier to set up. As soon at the weather gets a little better I plan on using it in the Sierra's for a week or so

by fromGood tent Have had mine for several years, and like it a lot. The weight for the price was great, and although there's more competition than before it's still very good. If you're like me and like the simple 1 door 2 pole design then go for it while you can, since this style seems to be disappearing fast. The brow pole is nice: adds headroom, makes it easier to get in/out, less dripping in the rain (getting in/out), and supports a built in gear loft. As with other 3 person tents, it's comfortable for 2. With 3 folks you may want to spend a little more for something with 2 doors/vestibles to cover gear. Quality wise has been great--no problems.

by fromVersatile tent that stays dry! I've used this tent twice so far (once backpacking and the other car camping) and have been really happy with it. It's my first tent so I have nothing to compare it with, but I found it really easy to set up (even at 2am in the pouring rain!). Most recently it survived three days of bad weather and I was impressed that the inside stayed dry. I suppose you could squeeze three people in if you had to, but it's a nice size for two people and gear. I most recently fit two people and a dog in a small kennel/crate. The tent seems stable, although I haven't had any high winds test it out. It's probably a bit on the heavier side for backpacking, but it's not bad. I didn't even bother splitting up the weight with a second person, but that would be an option for longer backpacking trips. I do find that the zipper on the door sometimes snags, which can be annoying, but it's not that big of a deal. I use the tent with the footprint... it was fairly expensive, but I see in the current model they include the footprint instead of selling it separately. For beach camping, I used the REI snow stakes with this tent and it worked out really well.
