Very Sturdy, Very easy to put up---VERY SMALL!!! Tiny in fact

So if you are looking for a tent that will keep you dry, keep you warm and is easy to put up, this is your tent. The Fly does required a line and stake to work, but it does work.

There are two doors which makes if very nice and provides good ventilation and makes it easy for getting in and out of.

The tent is fairly tall, and I have a short camping chair I was able to put inside while it rained on us all day. I stayed dry and so did my book.

Be sure and use a footprint or tarp underneath because it seems like the floor is somewhat delicate.

HOWEVER If you are looking for lots of sleeping room for three people get another tent. IN fact if you are looking for a lot of sleeping room for TWO people, get another tent. This is a small tent, its odd floor design does not accomadate three people at all unless they are visitor from OZ.

The vestibule area is very small as well. So if you are looking for a great two person tent, then the Jagged Peak 3, 3 person 4 season tent is the choice, if you are looking to be able to actually sleep three people, keep shopping.

Space and weight is a big consideration for us because will be strapping it onto our motorcycle. We want one with height so we don't neccessarily have to crawl around on our old knees. Also looking at the Alps Mtn. Extreme 3, and the Marmot Limelight. Any ideas on which one is better?

Chapman: for the money i would 100% go with the Marmot 3person Limelight. just came off a 10 day bush trip and one of the other members had the Limelight, held up great.we had 45mh winds one day and rain. i think about 2 lbs lighter then ALPs. i had my Eureka K-2 KT.( a real 4 season tent). which i would highly reccomend if you need a true 4 season tent. otherwise IMO, go with the Marmot.
