Seen a few reviews mentioning how this tent does in rain, but has anyone used in in winter conditions? It claims to be 4-season, has anyone who has used other 4-season tents have any experiences or opinions?

Unlike Pat P. I have used Alps tents, although not this particular model . The material and build quality seems good in my experience. While they are not up to the quality and technical sophistication of the bigger name brands (Mt. Hardwear, MSR, etc.) in my experience they provide an excellent bang for your buck. This particular tent appears to be very well reviewed,on one site being picked as the best budget alternative to a Hilleberg jannu (which is saying a lot), and fairly light for a 4 season 2 person tent. One caution i have is that there only appear to be a few guy points on the fly, so I would be hesitant to take this out in the worst (windiest, heaviest snow load) conditions. Hence I would not perhaps pick this for a serious mountaineering tent, but I'm pretty sure it would do well for everything else.
