I have the Moss Stardome II, which is the fury with two doors. I'm actually jealous of the weight savings from taking out one door, but I love this tent too much to really complain. The old version had a transition-tent-like ceiling panel that made this into a very good backpacking tent for the Sierras or the Wind Rivers, but I've also used this tent in Rocky Mountain National Park during an impressively rainy 4-day trip. Stayed dry and secure through thundersnow and thunder showers, high winds and cold nights.
My only complaint is that this tent is not really designed for tall people. My brother and I (both 6'1") were COZY in the tent, and consistently had to sort of crab-walk out of the vestibule door in the mornings. This made for rather awkward procedures when it rained, as brushing against the zipper tended to put water on us.
I could definitely see this working differently if you were camped on snow, and could therefore dig out under the vestibule a bit. Still, I cannot imagine a better double-wall tent for mountaineering, and look forward to kicking the crap out of it in the future.
