I'm 6 feet tall and fit sitting up very well inside
This is an amazing tent. The garage feature is a sweet feature to have. It is an amazing space to keep your gear dry, out of the weather, and out of sight.
Would recommend putting this tent up before you go out with it just so when you get out you know where the poles go and it will be a lot faster. As far as a 2 pole tent goes it is a very stable and strong design. The rain fly is kinda confusing the first time you put it on, but you'll get the hang of it fast. The small window in the rain flies door is a nice feature. The rain fly works amazingly, it truly is water tight. The tent has lots of mesh making it very breathable so that you don't have to worry about moisture or condensation. The tent is also very light and compact making it an amazing tent for backpacking.
The point is I would recommend this tent to anyone looking for a one person tent.
Spider-silk weight fabrics and a clever asymmetrical design come together to make this a very special tent, that needs some attention to detail in setup.
For starters, let's get the obvious out of the way: The two poles are hugely different in size, and the long one looks bent. Put them in backwards,and you'll get nowhere. Once you do that, you'll find that the high pole takes a good bit of tension: this tension makes the entire structure pretty solid and strong, but worries me when pulling that mesh so tight. Same with the rainfly: Takes a little getting used to pulling it over to get it to set right. Tip: Poles always go under seams!
The arrangement where the poles clip in to the tent body is interesting, and I highly encourage setting this tent up at least once in daylight before you're fumbling with the headlamp. It actually makes a good bit of sense, it's just different.
Liveability? Great! It's a thin tent, with a whole lot of airspace inside, so condensation is less a problem than it should be, all and all, surprisingly capacious for you and the bike. Less garage-like than an MSR Velo, but 1/3rd the weight.
how is this tent with moisture and condesation...
how is this tent with moisture and condesation on the inside?
No problems with moisture and condensation in moderate-high humidity. I haven't tried it in the rain though, but I doubt there will be problems.
The moisture or condensation will occur on the fly of the tent (like all tents) but the mesh nature of the tent body allows for a ton of ventilation and great condensation mitigation. Enjoy!
I live in the extremely moist area on southeast alaska and growing up have had many tents and waking up with moisture in the morning on the inside has always been a given. it hasnt really mattered on how nice of a tent it is there would always be some, but this is the first tent that i havent had that issue. ive used it over a year in rain, fog, overcast, and nice and clear weather its always been nice and dry on the inside.
