is there any chance of using this tent in a NY/PA/NJ summer (not Greenland) or is this a straight hotbox?
this is a heavy duty 4 season base camp tent built to withstand gnarly mountain storms. that being said it could work in your area but it will probably be way too hot. it has some vents, and you could leave the door open and make it work. but you will probably be more comfortable in some kind of 3 season tent that has mesh in the ceiling

With a removable floor, how does the Lair stand-up to a torrential downpour?
Marmot totally thought of that...make it rain.

I now have the cabela alaska. It has proven it self time and time again. I want a larger tent of super quality and larger than I have now. This tent does not show any windows and in comparison to the alaskan tent how much bigger inside will i have.
With the Mountain Lair 8 you would gain 45 sq. ft. more floor space & 16" more interior height over the Alaskan Guide.

How much does this tent wheigh and estimate time to put up.
It weighs 26 lbs. & two people, after practice, could set it up in eight minutes. Four people could cut that time in half.
