I live in Colorado and bought these for everything from ice climbing lincon falls to long hikes up steep slopes. I've had them for two winter seasons now and have no complaints whatsoever. These should work for pretty much anything in north america...unless you have cold feet. I don't, but I have one friend with these boots that prefers his double boots on colder days. But like I said, they work great for me. For sure a great value buy from La Sportiva.

I've got a size large and I use it to carry gear and clothes for all my trips ranging from 3 days to a week or so...but I usually carry allot of gear too. So, I'd recommend the XL. Might as well go too big than too small. If you've got the funds just order one of each and return the one that does'nt work for ya.

The vestibule is pretty small on this one...I'd recommend just laying your packs on top of the boots. There aren't many tents that you can store the packs AND get in and out. When backpacking you'd normally just want to store your packs there when you are hitting the sack. The other option is just leave the packs outside, or in a tree, they'll survive.

Most tents don't come with enough stakes to cover EVERY tie down point and floor attatchment points. So it's really up to you to know where you think you may want areas staked down. Personally, for this tent with the fly on you obviously need a few for the vestibules, after that if its windy you might as well hit most of the tie downs higher and on the side of the fly. Whereas, if its not so windy, you might as well stake down the floor to create more room inside the tent. Hope that helps.
