This tent has been through the wind, light snow, ice & rain, and some basic warmer spring/fall weather, too. Performed perfect and as expected in all situations. I use the ground cloth with it as precipitation seems to follow me everywhere I pack. Sets up very quickly, even in rain, and everything stays dry. Ice popped right off, although the poles did get a little difficult to take down due to the ice build up at the connections. Still, it's up and down in a cinch.
There is plenty of room inside the tent for clothes and small items. In my case, I could fit a pack in there (had I wanted to) because I use a petite bag. The zippers were easy to use and I cannot stress how easy set up was.
Cons: It is a heavier tent because of its size and solidness. A minimalist probably needs to look for something different. It can easily be split between packs to lessen its bulk and weight.
Every time I go backpacking, I see at least one more of these tents on trail or in camp.
Great three season tent!
