The Titan is very airy and well-ventilated. It's a little on the heavy side for a two-person tent, mainly because of the fly, but it's well worth it. We used the tent during a summer storm (but still 90 degrees out) camped at a very windy beach. It stood up to fairly windy gusts...about 20 mph winds.
The tent is so great in that there are two doors so you don't have to climb over the other person, especially in such a small space. We considered getting the seedhouse and other lighter tents, but this tent, in this price range, had a whopping 92 inch length which was the only tent long enough for my 6 foot 2 hubby. I don't care if other tents say 84 inches, it does not fit a 6 foot 2 person. The width is a comfortable 54 inches, and because of that extra little pole that intersects the other 2 poles, the tent walls are very rigid, giving that extra little bit of headroom.
The vestibules are small, but enough to fit a daypack and your shoes. The fly doors were very efficient especially when the storm came in the middle of the night. I simply reached out and un-did the holdbacks, zipped that sucker up and we were dry and snug through the rest of the night. There are also little vents in the fly which allow air through for a minimal breeze. This wouldn't be sufficient airflow in the humid southeast summer, but during a cooling rainstorm, it was great and did a good job keeping the water out. I would fully recommend folding the fly doors back when you're unsure of the weather. But if it's gonna be a dry one, the ability to sleep without the fly on and looking up at the stars was the best feeling in the world.
A final little note...don't get dressed in this tent without closing the fly cause buddy, the whole world will be able to see your assets. Ha ha!
