This is a tent suitable for tall people or for two who wants huge amounts of room. The vestibules are very large that can cope with packs, boots, wet gear and cooking, plus ample room to move in. In warm weather they can be completely folded back to allow outstanding airflow. I used the tent in the Australian Snowy Mountains. It handled a good blizzard with a snow load of about 40cm one night. Another occassion it easily stood the 130kph (85mph) winds (we didn't get much sleep that night!).
It is one of the easiest tents to pitch (don't fold, but stuff it in its stuff sack). In windy wet weather, pull out one end, peg it down, then slowly pull out the remainder, putting each pole in as you go. Pull the tent as taut as you can the peg down the other end. The whole job might take 2 minutes!! The poles go in the fly sleeves and the inner is already hung.
