Nearly Perfect Design

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

If this tent had a vent at the foot end of the tent like the Nemo Storm 1P this would be a nearly perfect design. 2 vents on the head end are ample especially with the awning open. However, there is always condensation at the foot end. Which I guess is the reason Nemo made sleeping bags with waterproof footbox. It's a front entry tent but the doors are really tall and makes it really easy for entry and exist. My sleep system and shelter consists of this tent, nemo tango solo, astro lite insulated pad with the switchback underneath. It's a very plush and comfy sleep system at around 7 pounds for everything. Used this during a rainy week up at Isle Royale recently with 2 adults stayed dry and had plenty of room for gear and comfort. PROS: superlight, packs small, easy entry and exist for a front entry tent, PLENTY of room for two or can be used as a plush light weight solo shelter, high quality materials and the option to be able have the awning up is a nice touch. Also, I'm confident in its 4 season ability due to the steep walls and design. I'll be testing that out this winter though. CONS: Condensation at the foot end seems inevitable no matter what you do, takes a bit of practice to pitch correctly. It can be difficult to get a tight pitch at first but eventually you get the hang of it. And the amount of tent stakes needed to fully stake it out is crazy. To fully stake it out with guy lines requires 12 stakes. Can be pitched with 6 to 8 stakes but to get a fully tight pitch you need 12 stakes. Which in windy weather or bad storms would make it nearly bomb proof with aluminum trek poles, but that's alot of stakes to carry around. Honestly, if it had another vent at the foot end to help with condensation I'd have found a nearly perfect shelter for myself.

Does this tent have a floor?

Hey there, This item is designed as a shelter and not a tent. This shelter does not come with a floor.

I have two questions. The first is does this come with a footprint? And the second is if this is a two person tent. One of the photos of it packed up said it's 1p. Thanks

Hey Michaela, this tent will not include a footprint. It is also the 2P there is a variation of this tent is also a 1P but the one listed above is a 2P. If you have any other questions feel free to reach out to me via the information listed above.
