Just right.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Have taken it out in a couple different conditions now. Performed well in light Olympic Forest drizzle, Appalachian cold, and Eastern WA heat. It definitely is a smaller tent (I'm 6'1" and my wife is 5'9"), but still felt comfortable sleeping together. Bought an REI footprint, which works well, so cannot comment on what having no footprint would be like. As expected, it is very light and compact; packs up very nicely into just about any backpack.

Hurricane Proof

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Camped through a category 3 hurricane on the Pacific Coast in Nicaragua. The storm hit at 2 am. The tent was shaking violently, but not a single drop entered. In the morning, our equipment remained unscathed while the town around us was flooded and battered sea turtles laid dead on the beaches. Have to admit: This tent is small, but it has proved its worth, time and time again as I traveled and camped throughout the years.

Many cozy nights

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've used this tent for over a year now mainly in the Sierra Nevadas camping in Tahoe or Yosemite. I've been really impressed with how well it stood up next to high winds. It's my lightweight backpacking tent and is super easy to set up. Fits two and a dog comfortably. I've used it a lot and there is not much proof of it! Durable.

Awesome little tent

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used and abused this tent for over 2 years now, and it is still going strong. it is very light, sets up extremely quickly and easily, and is relatively bombproof.

I have used it in scorching hot deserts, freezing New Hampshire mountains, and a bunch of less exciting places in between. It has been great in all of those places, the fly does a great job of keeping weather at bay, and when it's clear the mesh roof makes for some awesome star gazing.

Tall people be warned! I am about 6'1" and can just barely sleep in it... I also have a long torso, and definitely can't sit-up in it. this isn't normally a problem, unless you are trying to change or pack up your stuff while it's raining.

The tent certainly is not free standing either, which hasn't ever been an issue for me, but is something to be aware of.

I regularly fit two 6 foot guys in it, and while it is very cozy, there is more then enough space for sharing with a friend.

Bought this tent second-hand from a friend who'd used it in the Indian Himalaya. Three months through India, I preferred sleeping in this to local hotels. I even pitched it in my room in India and slept in it for a whole winter while working for an NGO that had less than stellar windows that wouldn't shut properly, making for 45 degree (F) nights. Great piece of gear.
