I bought this tent to replace an aging Moss two person 4 season that I had inherited. I have the older version without the spreader for the vestibule, so my vestibule is smaller and rain can drip into the tent with the fly open. Not so with this new version, so I can rate the new one 5 stars! Great value, good weight, and all guyed out with aftermarket stakes this tent can take some serious weather! While there are lighter tents, larger tents and stronger tents, you can't go wrong with this one for an all-around performer.

This tent does stand up to winds well, but it NEEDS aftermarket stakes and the vestibule should be double-staked so you don't end up outside fixing it in the storm at night. I have had mine out in ~40 knot winds, and with the fly staked out and the vestibule double staked, no problems. Three season tents require good staking to remain upright and dry in heavy weather, but you don't have to carry a 4 season, so its all good! My tent did leak a bit the first time in heavy rains from the upper end of one of the zippers. Just seam sealed it up and it has been perfect since.

I don't know what the average temps will be in Yellowstone, but you will survive car camping in this tent. Condensation is your enemy in below zero temps, but this tent has plenty of ventilation. The problem with this tent is with heavy snow load. The vestibule WILL eventually be weighed down and will pull your stakes and that will be the end of your fun. Get some aftermarket heavy duty stakes and use it for car camping/overnighters and you'll be fine. DO NOT take this tent for extended wilderness winter trips! The tent will take three people easy, especially with the dual vestibules. Plenty of room for gear storage and a good sleeping area per person...
