Very impressed with this tent. Incredibly light...and since your trekking poles will double as the upright poles, your total bulk/weight is very low. Fly material is supple and tough, and compresses very well. The design and stitching of the fly is of good quality.

Beta Light fly on its own is ridiculously light.
But even with the bug/floor combo added...still very light.

I sometimes use with the Beta Light floor/bug combo, which has so far held up well to many different ground types (from jumbled/sharp glacial rocks in the North Coast Mtns of saturated/squishy meadows of South Island of NZ).

In extra-windy conditions...such as up at the East end of the Fitzsimmons Range in BC...setting up a simple guying system from numerous loops helps stabilize tent...though the traditional pyramid shape sheds the wind very well to begin with.
