Bought my Trango as a replacement for another famous mounaineering tent to take up the West Butt route on Denali. It turned out to be the perfect tent for this route -- easy to set up in the wind, solid in the wind, relatively quiet in the wind, easy to take down in the wind -- did I mention Denali can be really windy?! Oh yeah, and you don't have to worry about your foam plugs blowing away because there are none! Pretty bombproof -- in all but the most wicked storms, you can sleep the night away without having to worry about digging out every hour. It does have a large footprint, so I wouldn't take it on a chip your own platform route. But there is an upside to the size -- when having to sit out a storm for six days at 17,000 there is plenty of room to kick back and relax without having someone's feet in your face all the time. The large vestibule is great for cooking and putting your plastics back on in the morning. I've also use this tent in the cascades in some pretty wet conditions -- a very dry tent if you keep it vented correctly.
