The tent has everything a serious backpacker or camper is looking for. Ok it has everything that I was looking for in a new two person tent. Two doors, two vestibules, good inside height, relatively light weight, sturdy, and packs small. The MSR Hoop does all of those. I like a tent to have walls that aren't all mesh for camping in cooler climates and a little privacy if I have the fly off and mine's down. Another plus is with the extra poles that make it free standing, it also spreads the tent out better to increase room. I think for the weight of those two poles and what they accomplish they WILL be coming with me on future trips.
It also came with the MSR mini groundhog stakes instead of cheap stakes like most tents come with.
