I went through two other tents before this one, and this is the winner hands down. I was toying between the MSR and another, and the only thing making me think twice about MSR was the price. I was dying to try it out, so I took it snow camping where it got down to 5F at night. It did fine. I was especially amazed of the space in comparison with the one I was going to buy. I bought the fly and gear loft for a complete set up. I cooked inside the vestibule and had zero problems (just make sure stove and pot are centered inside the vestibule). After using this tent a couple of times, I admit I would buy it over the one I was thinking about despite the price. My wife likes it as well and it fit us both with our gear superbly (I am 6ft 1in). It was a breeze to set up even in wind/snow gusts. Sure it may not be the ideal tent for winter but it didn't condensate either. For a tent that has this superb of fit & finish, space, ease of set up, dry entry, and weight savings you can't go wrong. Quit looking at tents and just buy this one. You be glad you did.
