I love this little tent. Don't get me wrong: Tall people, this is not for you. The floorplan alone should tell you that. Also, anyone looking for a 2-person backpacking tent for your random smelly pal, you might want to think twice. This tent is for intimate companions only. So far, I've been using it as a solo car-camping tent, but wouldn't hesitate to take it backpacking. While it might seem heavy for solo ventures; the space, the quality of the materials, the durability of the design and the options available make this one of the most interesting tents (and tent companies) on the market. The interchangeable doors on the rainfly is a stroke of genius. While the additional cost of the trekking pole vestibule takes this tent into the fairly retarded zone of pricing, the weather-protected space it gives you is amazing. You could easily cook in there, (door open of course) and the amount of room you have for removing wet raingear and storage is worth every penny. Seriously, most of the superlight tents at this size and weight class (OK, minus 1 lb) out there cost just as much as both the tent + add-on vestibule and don't have anywhere near the liveable room. While the standard vestibule does have some faults (mentioned in the reviews for the Espri 3 person-the angle of the design lets in the rain), these are pretty easy to work around. The zipper location makes for super-fast entry/exit and the trekking pole vestibule eliminates this problem entirely. I have sat in this tent for 6-hour torrential downpours on multiple occasions and the ventilation and quality of design and workmanship are outstanding.
