Great tent for the $$
This tent demonstrates the quality that mountain hardware is known for.
I've used this tent for 3 or 4 seasons with zero issues. Easy to setup (not free standing), water proof and roomy for a light weight tent. I used the tent for two people and a medium sized dog. The tent will fit a queen size mattress snug with a couple of feet in the front for gear and the dog. Vestibule will fit two packs not much more.
Very satisfied with the light path -- looking at the corners 6 for canoe trips and car camping.

This tent does exactly what it's supposed to do. It's lightweight and it keeps you dry and it's not too expensive. It's a pretty easy set up. Had to do it in the dark one night and it was a little more complicated then. The only thing I did notice was a little bit of condensation on the mesh in the mornings but it wasn't a problem

Great Tent for 3, good tent for 2. I use this on longer trips for 2 so we have more comfort.

I've used this both motorcycle camping, climbing 14ers and car camping and its worked great so far. Its perfect for My girlfriend and I along with our dog. I would only do 3 in this tent if it was absolutely required. Its a perfect 2 person w/ a dog tent but 3 would be a stretch. One thing I'm not too excited about is the single door and the sloped design. It makes it hard to sit up in as well as get in and out. Other than that its held up great, and remained water proof through numerous thunderstorms.
Gets the job done, I took it with me solo Backpacking in iceland for a week, Rained on me straight for 5 days, I stayed dry.
Set up is easy in good weather, and a bit difficult in bad. Like someone else said, Bulky on the pack, but light. It is airy, and breathes very well.
If you get in this tent, you will have to be laying down. It is very uncomfortable to sit up in and is a bit odd to get into (go in head first and then turn around in small space..). Vestibule is big, but I had enough room for my pack IN the tent as well. With two people though, Im not sure how that would work out, the vestibule isn't thaaat big..
It does its job very well, which is to shelter you from the rain, stay breathable, and be light.
Do you have to buy the footprint seperat...
Do you have to buy the footprint seperately?
Great wind resistance and venting. Bought this for backpacking here in Colorado with my kids.
Pros: Lightwieght for the size(5lbs10oz), easy set up, weather/wind protection
Cons: Bulky in pack(8x24 with footprint), not free standing(have to use stakes)
