There is much to recommend about the Phoenix 2. It is lightweight, compact and the ideal shape and size for two. In mild conditions or light rain, it does a fine job of keeping you dry. However, in pounding rain or rain driven by a heavy wind, the waterproofing is not up to the job. I recently completed a six-day hike down the West Coast Trail on Vancouver island. It's a rainforest, and rain it did - non stop for 20 hours. We were soon aware of a fine mist coming through the fabric and by morning, we, and all our gear, was soaked through. In those conditions, it needs to be tarped.
