This is a great looking tent.  Check out the reviews and you'll see that is is a great working tent also.  I don't know if it's legal to copy and paste the specs from the REI site so I will just suggest that you go there to check it out as there is a lot to write.  I will tell you this...

screens are in perfect shape

zippers are in perfect shape

tent body is in perfect shape

fly is in great shape (has 3 small stains similar to one shown in photo and an area maybe 1.5" by 1.5"of very small imperfections on fly door. Not sure how they got there.  :o(

poles are in prefect shape

stakes are in perfect shape

guy lines are in perfect shape

stuff sack for tent, poles and stakes are in perfect shape

I am asking $175 or will trade for a winter under-quilt for my Hennessy Hammock.

Is the Arete based on a Moss or Walrus design?

Alan, I don't know if anyone at REI would actually admit to the Arete being based on a particular tent, BUT it's external design and pole structure is suspiciously "similar" to the (original) Walrus Terramoto design, which was later renamed the Fusion 2 by MSR.

I almost forgot that a few years back a Terramoto 3.0, constructed in the final days of Edgeworks, was sewn with Moss fabric colors and branding(tags), sold  on eBay. This was a 1 of piece that sadly, I was'nt able to bid more than $325 dollars for.

Abman47 I couldn't think of the specific model but I thought the design was familiar.  I do like the general design, I think the tent would set up very solidly.
