When I say frog, everyone listens. When I say I have my frog, everyone gets curious.

This tent has great ventilation, but let's question the two person tent concept. You had better know your sleeping partner well!

With one end small it is very likely you will be toe to toe with the other occupant.

Good things do abound within the tent. It is fairly spacious near the fly, but do not try to stand up. It was not built for that purpose.

A couple of things, I wish was there was a pad that extended from one side to the other in the entry vestigial. Cool air can also plow through the lower portion of the entrance and water intrusion may occur so protect your backpack gear off the ground.

I bring a rug mat to make it easier to kneel on and to store goods to keep off the damp/wet ground in this vestigial. Also I use an outer mat when I step out to stand up or put more clothing on. That makes egress and ingress is much easier.

The tent is a mite heavy with all of its features so a 20 mile hike experience can wear you down.

It is also helpful to color code your tent items even as some of the tent already has coding on it. That I do find helpful.

The tent is also airy and not too private without the rain cover on it. Just be careful you do not show off body parts if you change or sleep without coverage inside the tent.

I bring a rug mat to make it easier to kneel on. Also for an outer mat to step out on. I bring another mat so that egress and ingress is much easier.

It is a mite heavy with all of its features so don't think of it as a 20 mile hike experience with it.

I find it comfortable and fairly easy to put together so that is ok.

Enjoyed my frog until someone stole it during a trip back. Frog was not complicated to set up. It had ample space for one. You had better know the second person in your tent cause you will be very likely doing some toe to toe touching. The storage bins within the tent were great. Crawling out of the door was the most fashionable way out. Added a personal door rug to make it easier to crawl out. The inner storage space was fine except air/water could flow through this part of tent. Also, with no flooring in storage area, air from outside could easily penetrate the bedding area. A drop down flap would have been great to eliminate the flow going to the bedding area.
