I love this tent but let me start by saying what it isn't: This tent is not for tall people, if BD tents appeal to you get the Lighthouse. I'm 5'8" and it's great for me and people under 6 feet tall but someone taller might find it a little short. It isn't the quickest and easiest tent to set up, however after a few a few practice runs at home I can set it up just as quick as any tent. It isn't a tent you can sleep in and open your eyes and see the stars although it does have excellent ventilation. Here's what it is. It is an unbeleiveably light tent tent at a little over 2.5 lbs. No need for a rain fly as the poles go inside and the tent has two little awnings over the windows. You do have to seal the seams with silicone provided by the manufacturer but once this is done the tent is completely rainproof and never gives off condensation inside. Another great feature is the huge door. At camp everyone kind of gathers around my tent because with the door down it's like a little living room. Also there is no sag as the poles pull the silnylon material very tight maximizing every inch of inside space. I've have never had trouble finding a place to set this up either because if the small footprint. In short this is a great backpacking all-in-one tent, lightweight, packs really small, relatively easy to set up and breakdown, and weatherproof. Oh yeah I almost forgot the color is awesome and even on the gloomiest trips makes things very bright.
