I was looking high and low for a good one-man tent. I was about to buy the Spitfire by Eureka. Then my Dad who is an avid backpacker told me a few things to look for. He has owned several 1 man tents in his days. He told me to look for a side entry, good head clearance and a rainfly. He had some tents that were just solid material and had no need for a rainfly. These tents cause a ton of condensation to form and soak you and your gear. He also told me to get one that has aluminum poles since he has had several fiberglass poles crack and fall apart.
So when I took all these things into consideration I went tent shopping and found this one. It matched all the features I was told to look for. There was a Kelty one next to it for about $10 more but this tent was about a foot wider and a foot taller and only weighed about 4 oz more. I bought it at Sportsmans Warehouse. You can even fit a second person in there if you had to.
It has been a great tent and I would highly recomend it to anyone!!!!!
