@bryndsharpI also have a lynx 1 that I used for several years. Other than being a little on the heavy side, it's a great tent for one person. Tough, easy to set up, fairly tall for sitting up in, and I never had any rain problems with it. Used it in all four seasons. I moved on to an REI Quarter Dome, mostly for the weight but also for a little extra height. I'm more than pleased with it, and I'll be using it for a long time. I would recommend either of these for someone just starting out, probably the biggest factor would be their budget.
