Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
It's so, so light, packs down to the size of a Nalgene, sleeps two plus backpacks plus room to cook, and sets up in a minute.
This is almost the only shelter I even think about anymore, unless things might get nasty enough to grab my partners Hilleberg. That said, this thing is tough, and with snow piled on the edges and a wall it'll handle some strong (at least 40-50mph) winds.
I've used it in the Smokies, the Rockies, the Alps, and as a kitchen on Denali. I use it year-round for both backpacking and climbing, and it feels more like home than any tent I've owned.
Seam sealing would be nice, as would 1-2 extra guy-out points per side to make it even stronger, but when you consider price, weight, space, convenience, and versatility, nothing I've used even comes close.
