There aren't too many 4 person backpacking tents out there, and even fewer 4-season tents for under this price, but this is one of them. Fits four, but the person sleeping perpendicular should be on the shorter size. This tent has a nice rain fly, and two vestibles. The vestibles are large enough that we were able to put packs in one, and shoes in the other.

The Comfort is my first Dynafit binding, and I've only been out once so far on them, but...they tour like a dream, and provide a very firm attachment for the descent. I have been using the Fritchi Freerides, which, according to the literature, may provide a safer release mechanism, but, relatively speaking, they are heavy and clunky to climb in. And while the Fritchi provides an extra heel lift position (four compared to three), I didn't miss it. The only negative to the Dynafit is the lack of toe release when climbing. I'd feel more comfortable knowing my skis would easily release in the event I was buried on the climb up. However, I suspect an avalanche might ignore this binding design limitation and separate my toe from my ski anyway.

I have five days on them so far, three in the backcountry and two in the resorts, and so far so good.

My main concern prior to purchasing was talk of there being a fair amount of flex in the rail. The various reviews sometimes touch on the subject, one of which noted that the Naxo had more flex. However, after skiing on them, I have to say that if there is flex I don't notice it. Perhaps if I was spending my time on groomers, especially hardpack, it might be evident, but who wants to ski groomers anyway?
