This is the first 1-person tent I have ever owned, and only having tested in the backyard so far, it seems like a great value. It packs tight and light, and has the features anyone would want when on the trail. It is easily large enough for me to sleep in, sit in, and to even keep some gear. As others have mentioned, the tent itself is all mesh, which makes it great for summer camping. With the rainfly on, it should perform well in wet weather. If you're going to be taking it out in colder weather, just make sure you have a warm sleeping bag. Spacious vestibule is a nice bonus. I'd been eyeing the Eureka Backcountry 1 for years, but when I was finally ready to pull the trigger, it seemed to be out of production. If you need a footprint, try checking out gofastlite.com

This sleeping pad is perfect for me, but know what you plan to use it for before purchasing. I use it for 3-season backpacking on its own. For the weight and money, it's hard to beat. If you need something that's going to pack small, however, this is not the pad for you. Some other people here mentioned that it makes a good "sub-pad," but I haven't tried as such myself. I do know that the reflective side really does add heat when you need it, but be sure to go green side up in the summer. The number one reason I chose this one is because you can't puncture it. I'm careful with my gear, but when you're on the trail, you don't want to have to be worried about things like that. At 5'7" the regular pad is big enough for my whole body, head to toe, but if you want to save some space and don't mind having your feet dangle off, go for the small.
