Bought this tent for backpacking. The big draw for me was the weight and the freedom of a freestanding tent. Packs perfect in a 2-3 day bag with pad, stove and sleeping bag. If you stake it out the ventilation is very good. Plenty of hoops inside for hanging and the vestibule is large enough for your boots and pack for the night. I'm 6' 1" and it fits fine with a pillow (my pack in my case). It's only been on one 3 day trek so far in the woods of Maine but I'm hoping to have many trips with this tent so we'll see if it holds up. Another trip next weekend - can't wait. This pic is at Horn's Pond on the Bigelow Range in Stratton, Maine. UPDATE: I also use this tent in the winter for an overnighter we do in early March. Fits the bill for that too. Has been on many trips now and it is still in great shape.
