I love this little tent! I would recommend this to any backpacker/camper who needs a good 1 person tent. As the previous reviewer said, forget 2 people, unless you're VERY friendly. It's perfect for one person and a pack. Your muddy boots can live out the in the vestibule while you sleep.
I'd highly recommend buying the footprint to go with it. It's a groundcloth shaped to match the tent. If you're camping in good weather, you can even use just the rainfly, footprint and poles to make an ultra-light shelter!
What I like:
- Very, very light.
- Fast setup.
- 3/4 season with the vestibule/rainfly.
- Great ventilation.
- Kept me happy and dry in snow and 3 degree weather, even before I got around to sealing the seams. It's got double stitched seams in all the important places.
What I don't like:
- Requires the stakes to stay upright.
- Gets very small at one end. Not for the claustrophobic.
