This an excellent tent for the price. I am 5'7" and weigh 155lbs.
I was in the market for a 1 man tent that was light, affordable, and spacious. So I bought a Coleman 1 man (Dakota) tent. That was a first for me as I always purchase top of the line. Of course for the space to weight ratio, it sucked.
I then saw this tent. It is a little over 3.5 lbs as I weighed it and can fit 2 people, but very tight. This makes it perfect for me as a one man setup. Great buy for the money and Big Agnes is the best in tent and sleeping bag products!
I will use this as my primary 1 man climbing/backpacking tent until it falls apart or my boss gives me a raise...
