Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $575

Very large 1-person tent. Two friendly people can easily fit in this tent. It is very long, and the 8"carbon fiber struts in each corner give more useable space at each end. Even with a long winter down bag and on top of a thick NeoAir pad, I was nowhere close to touching either end.

The awning adds immense space to store gear and still can be set down low in bad weather. The option of zippers on both sides adds convenience without adding much weight. This model also adds two vents in the top of tent for extra venting in rainy weather.

This tent, including guylines, 8 stakes, and stuff sacks, weighs under 25 oz.
