Great for backpacking

I used this tent last summer for a week-long backpacking trip with two friends. We were looking for a tent that could genuinely fit 3 of us (all pretty tall), and this one definitely worked well without feeling like we were overlapping when we slept. The tent sets up easily (a practice set up before I left helped). The two vestibules were great and provided enough room to store poles and packs and protect them from salt-seeking deer. It is a very light tent - definitely lighter than the 2 person tent I usually take backpacking.

It rained almost every night of our trip and was generally damp enough that there was condensation on the tent every morning, but during the day we spread out the tent to dry whenever we had a chance and it was dry in no time. The tent did get a little chewed by a marmot, but this is more a reflection of the marmot's tastes than the tent's quality, and the small pieces of duct tape on the screen are a memento of a fantastic trip. Highly recommended - a very good deal for the price!
