Familiarity: I've used it several times
I wanted something that was super light, but that also had some structure and could withstand storms, rain, and crazy wind. This tent is just awesome. It's super light, but at the same time, insanely structurally sound. The material doesn't stretch so you get a bomb proof structure, without needing to re-adjust guy lines during the wind.
Another thing is that it's really versatile. This is my go-to tent for everything. I bought the mesh + floor insert as well. I use the exterior alone with a Tyvek footprint for the snow, and have used the exterior for alpine climbing with snow anchors. And I plan to use the exterior with insert for summer camping and an upcoming trek in Patagonia. I plan on using the exterior, set up higher up off the ground for some nice open air summer or beach camping in the future as well. Very stoked about the many uses for this tent and how modular it is. The double vents up top are great, for when you plant the tent all the way down to the ground in the wind, and there are loops on the upper inside for hanging a line, or clipping on a light.
Furthermore, for the weight, it's the most roomy two person tent I have owned. It's larger than other 2 person pyramid tents, on the market, but comparable in weight. There is enough room inside for two people and gear. There is a pole in the middle, but you can offset it to any side once the tent is up. It's a small inconvenience but you don't have to carry any extra tent poles. I use the hyperlite pole straps to lash two trekking poles together to support the pyramid. Or if you are camping near trees, there is a loop on the outside top you can use to suspend the tent from a tree. Again, so versatile.
