Happy, happy! This is a really nice, lightweight tent for the money spent. As usual with LLB, you get excellent quality materials, excellent workmanship, and the best service imaginable, all at a VERY reasonable price. Roomy enough for two but not spacious.

Being an all-net tent, ventilation is excellent, condensation minimal. The two little hoops on the fly do seem to help dissuade any condensation build-up.

The only complaint is that I wish the vestibule was a bit larger, say in the same size range as the Lightstuff 2, which is a very nice size, but if that's the only thing I can find to carp about I'm happy.

Some of the "Big Boys", like TNF, Patagonia, Marmot, SD, etc. could learn a lot from ole LLB, and I sure wish they would!!! Never have I been treated so well - customer service, price, value, quality - Thanks LLB.
