Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap material, bare bones construction Bought this a month ago, took it camping this weekend. I was sorely disappointed. The fabric is extremely cheap and thin. The tent lacks anything in the way of places to store your gear inside, etc., since the gear loft costs extra. The cube packing system would make it impossible to take backpacking, since you can't attach it to the lower part of your pack as you could if it were in a roll shape. The zipper on the fly and the zipper on the tent are so misaligned, you have to unstake the rain fly to just get into the tent. Basically, all the thoughtful touches of an REI Half Dome, which was my last tent, are absolutely missing. I am returning this and will spend the extra money for a Half Dome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good tent. I did quite a bit of comparison research (on-line) before I settled on this tent. Even though I backpack solo, I purposely chose a 2-person tent for the additional room. I like to have my gear inside the tent with me at night so the gear is better protected from the elements. The simple "x" 2-pole system is actually a single unit (which came as a surprise to me), and that made setup even easier. The footprint seems rather lightweight, but the protection it offers to the actual tent floor is sufficient. The footprint got damp over night, but the tent floor did not. The tent goes up in just a couple of minutes; I really liked the way the pole ends clip into the (metal) tent corner tabs. The fly attaches easily and securely to the poles and stakes out and guys down nicely. There are two stand-off supports attached to the underside of the fly near the roof center that help keep the fly away from the tent roof; these were not mentioned in the setup instructions and I only noticed them after I had the fly completely attached and tethered down. I think this tent would handle a heavy rain or light snow all right, but not for extended periods. I would rate this tent as good for two-season, but marginal for any serious weather. In all, setup took about twenty minutes, but that was "first time", so there was some learning curve time. I actually used my trek poles to extend the large vestibule flap into a "porch" (see photo), and I really liked this aspect of the tent design. The tent is a two-door unit, and the fly provides fair vestibule space for each door. The "hug clips" that attach the tent to the poles worked easily and well. Sleeping one person in the tent leaves ample room inside for personal gear. Two people in this tent will leave only a very small amount of inside space, say for shoes and jackets. There is a loop to attach a tent lantern and there are two small inside mesh pockets at tent floor level. This is my first backpacking tent so I can't claim vast experience, and I've only used it once so far, but so far I really like it. Just keep in mind that this tent seems to be best suited for primarily fair-weather conditions. Also bear in mind this tent does not come with a stuff-sack, but a twenty-liter compression sack gets footprint, tent and fly well packed down. Poles, stakes, and guy lines pack separately of course. As with any tent, having spare stakes (I recommend heavy-duty ones) should always be a part of your gear. For a few ounces of additional pack weight, spare stakes could be a game-saver. Finally, this tent has a lot of mesh surface, so it ventilates great, and also makes leaving the fly off a nice option for dry weather conditions, but this will of course sacrifice privacy.
