Got this tent for a steal off of a buddy who was hard up for some cash. I'm six foot three so this tent comfortably sleeps me. Two people could sleep in there easily.
At first I was a little wary of the single wall design, but it absolutely proved itself when it stood up to a torrential downpour on the West Coast Trail on Vancouver Island, which is not exactly what the tent was designed for, but it did kick ass through. Just trace amounts of condensation on the walls, but much less than I had expected.
It is not ultralight by any means but that is not what this tent is about. this tent is about being a brick house that a nuclear bomb couldn't knock down.
I haven't taken it on any Everest style trips, but in high winds it doesn't flap as tents with a rainfly have done for me.
Ss someone previously stated, setup has to be done carefully for at least the first few times until you get the hang of seating the poles in the corner snaps, but once you got it down, it's a breeze.
