Design: four-season non-freestanding hoop tent
Ease of Setup: excellent

This is a minor (I believe) upgrade of the original Andromeda. Please see my very favorable review of that tent.

If you're expecting some weather days the Exped Andromeda is the tent to bring. The massive vestibule (30 sq ft) lets you organize all of your gear and gives you room to shed layers before you enter the main tent. The canopy can be detached and pushed back for even more interior space. Poles slide into the pockets with ease, making set up quick and easy. At 35 sq ft, you'll be happy with the extra space.

Exped gave the Andromeda II Tent an absolutely massive vestibule with separate door to provide serious base camp versatility. Get in the vestibule with a shovel, dig a hole for your food, another for boot shells, and then make a platform for the stove. You'll appreciate it when you're waiting out a week-long Alaskan storm. Exped's modified single-wall design shaves weight to under the seven-pound mark, so this tent definitely makes the cut when you're loading gear on the ski plane.
