got this as a stocking stuffer one year...I prefer it over the tikka plus for backpacking cause its so straightfoward, slightly lighter and compact. Not to mention you can pull it out and attach it to trekking poles, girth hitch it to the inside of your tent as a lantern or around your nalgene in your tent at night time. Sweet gift

I've had this tent for 6 years and have to say, it is the most BOMBER shelter for the weight, ever. Bibler kills it. The single wall two pole set up is unbeatable...storming outside? Jump in, snap poles and you're sheltered. It has endured downpours in Alaska and mid winter in Colorado, and I've gotta say, it keeps the bad stuff out without condensation forming on the inside due to the unique toddtex material. The bathtub floor is bomber enough to pitch it in a puddle.

Only suggestion is get the Eldorado if you're more than 6'2". It's snug with two but not uncomfortable.

Big investment, but a tent that will last decades of heavy use.

I picked this thing up for $20 bucks and it's a gem. I use it on trail runs when I don't want my bulky Petzl Tika strapped to my dome. The rest of the time, it lives in my first aid kit as a backup, and has come in clutch on multiple occasions.

Great lightweight/backup headlamp that won't break bank.

We use these as standard issue with the Forest Service. Our cache is filled with these. It's a bear can...not much to say but the BV 500 isn't too heavy, and packs better than those black ones that require a coin or knife to open and have a lipped top.

Also, some of the lids make a perfect cutting board flipped upside down, though I've seen newer ones that have ridges that eliminate use.
