This baby is a great tent for those that travel in pairs or with dogs, or those that want extra space. The truth of the matter is that it is somewhat fragile compared to coleman tents but all higher quality stuff is. This tent is amazingly light (and strong) so don't be alarmed whan you first pick it up. Use it with the go-lite floor, or floor of your choosing, or none at all. use it with the included center pole or without (tie overhead to tree). Only complait is that it is difficult to keep taught and it needs adjusting and/or extra guy lines in some weather.

Very versatile, high quality, very light. Can't go wrong.

These are fantastic stakes for most purposes (see my review on the North Face version). Again, these are actually DAC stakes so decide how many you need, what color, and if you want cord attached to decide what is the best deal.

These are fatastic stakes for general use. the best mix of durability and utility, light weight without being too flimsy. I also use MSR groudhog stakes for extra hard ground but I use these for all my tents.

Do know that these are DAC stakes and are sold under many brands and that come with higher-end tents from MSR, Go-lite, Siera Designs, etc. They are all exactly the same, in different colors perhaps. Look for the number included in the set to see which is the best value, or if they have line attached (if you think you need that).

These things are wicked light but seem to be strong as well. Time will tell but so far so good. No issues at all. I only had to loosen the flicklocks somewhat (they were way tight) and still have no slippage at all. Now if you are gear-heavy you may want to consider another pole. They are carbon and will break if subjected to heavy side loads, but so will aluminum. I,m happy with them for sure.
