We have never experienced a tent so light for backpacking, at just over 2 pounds. This leaves us more room in our packs for food, and more energy to travel on the trail. It has a rain shield fly and plenty of room for our two sleeping bags. Love the color- bright but not obnoxious. Love the two doors openings, one for each side, so we don't have to climb over the other person if we have to go to the privy in the middle of the night. Zippers work great. Simple and efficient design. Easy to set up and take down. Love those tent poles that come together almost by themselves, with even an extra piece in case of breakage on the trail. Good enough tent stakes, too. Packs so small. Great hikers tent.
