Do you need a floor saving for this tent, and/or a sleeping pad? Or a sleeping bag is good enough..

This thing isn't huge, but I was able to fit my 65L pack in it with me as long as I turned the pack on its side. Survived several soggy and cold nights including a lot of rain, some snow, and morning frost backpacking in the High Uintah Wilderness without getting wet - be sure to stake the rain fly down tightly on (at least) the windward side or it'll flap around a bit. Upper part of the tent itself is mesh under the rain fly, so ventilation is sufficient. Happy with my purchase.
Does the job
I got this off SAC for a cool $60. I'm 6'2" and it fits my prolite plus long pad just fine. The first night I used it it poured all night long and was dry in the morning. It's light and of course packs well cause there is not a lot of fabric.
However, There is minimal vestibule space for your gear. For multi day trips with a large pack, you will have to store outside or in your buddy's vestibule. Also, I'm not a big fan of the door on the front of the tent instead of the side. I'm not sure why they did this. It's not freestanding, but I don't care about that, use the included stakes.
However, because of the small volume of the tent, it does stay very warm at night in colder temps.
For the price its a steal, but you have about the same room as a bivy sack and heavier so.

Will a large/wide (25" x 78") sleeping pad fit in this tent?
This tent has a floor space of 42 x 94in so you should be all set!
Sweet tent...ignore last review...the tent does stand by itself...like most tents! duh!
Bought this on SAC for $60. Used it on a nice August evening in Colorado the night before climbing Culebra. It is as advertised and pretty awesome for less than $100. Great features, nothing uber fancy, but nothing lacking.The last post about "not freestanding"...are you kidding? Did you set it up wrong? Yes, you did. This tent is free-standing...like 99.9 percent of tents out there.
Awesome but NOT freestanding
I felt a little dissapointed when I realized it was not freestanding

Can 2 skinny people use it? We're engaged, and fine being close, but is it possible?
You can use this as a two person tent as long as you don't mind sleeping on top of each other & comfort is not an option. It only has 21sq ft of floor space. Remember it's only flame retardant so don't generate too much heat!
It's possible, but the two of you are going to be pretty much on top of each other with only 42" of width (at the wide end), and it sounds like a recipe for a really bad night's sleep. Another thing to consider is that if you're crammed up against the sides and it's raining, you're going to shove the tent walls into the fly, which means, they make contact, you get wet. My advice would be to get a 2 person tent and stay well rested, happy, in love, and dry. Hope that helped.

does this tent hold up in a bad rain storm?
I just returned home from a self-contained bicycle tour in the sandhills of Nebraska, and the Mystique 1.0 preformed flawlessly! It packed small in my panniers and and kept me dry in a couple of evening storms, I think a couple of my traveling companions will be ordering soon.

Is this tent really freestanding? It looks like it only has two poles running in the same direction without anything to hold it up the length.
