depends on your needs

I like hiking alone a fair amount. I took this tent to Peru and did several overnight hiking/camping trips in the Andes alone. Yes, almost 4 lbs. is a lot for one person, but its also the lightest of its class. I wanted room to keep things in the tent and in the vestibule. I would bring my pack in the tent and the "small" vestibule was plenty for boots and wet things. I could also fit my pack in the vestibule if I wanted.
When doing continuous overnighters, whether in a back yard or in the wilderness, sometimes it is nice to have the extra space for comfort, changing, etc.
The quality seems very nice to me, breathability is great, yet it keeps heat in well also. I can also set this tent up pretty fast.
My only downside is that its bright Orange, and especially when I am hiking alone, I don't like sticking on like a soar thumb. It would be great if the rain fly were green or any earth tone.

This tent has never pissed me off in its weather-protection, setting up process, or packing down. I love it for myself, but the greatest part is... I can use it with a whole-nother person if necessary.

Light-weight for size and strength.

*SORE thumb. Not soar thumb. Your thumb is not flying.

Good job on actually writing out "whole-nother." I don't think I've ever seen that one in print.
