Not sure how this tent exists at this price, but its a great buy. Was looking for a sub-5 lbs 2-person tent to take on short backpacking trips. Initially looking at the Big Agnes UL and SL lines, but they are really expensive. REI's Half Dome 2 looked good but was a bit heavy. Then I saw this tent and am very happy with my purchase.

Trail weight is 4lbs 15oz, but that includes the footprint and gear loft, which is exactly what I was looking for. Tent set-up is very basic, two poles crossing each other. I was surprised at how vertical the walls were able to stand considering the basic tent design. Plenty of space for me at 5'10', would easily fit someone 6'0'-6'2'. Plenty of room for two people. I can sit up without issues. Rectangular floor with no taper. Love the gear loft and footprint.

Again, I have no idea how this tent can be priced so low, and still be plenty large enough for two people while weighing under 5 lbs. Just buy it.
