We are planning on camping during some cold weather months...is this a good tent for cold weather?

Depends on your cold weather... are you talking snow storm or just cool temperature?

I was pretty cold in mine in early September, halfway up a mountain in a campground in the NW, but I didn't have a super warm sleeping bag and I was on one end of the tent with plenty of room between me and the next person over. If you have a warm bag, something to put over your nose in case it gets cold (!), sleep in warm clothing/socks and have someone near you for more body warmth, you might be fine - depending again on how cold do you mean by cold. But if it's winter weather, seems to me you're pushing it a bit. One night at that same time I was soooo cold without the fly (we set up in the dark and were too tired to do anymore) and the next night the fly helped. I was still cold but went to sleep with more clothing and my coat on and I was much better.
