I'm not the most experienced backpacker in the world, but when I bought this tent, it seemed to fit my style perfectly. I very seldom sleep with other people and I need good ventilation. While the rainfly provides good rain protection, with both the vestibules zipped the rainfly seems to cut off airflow through the tent, and causes a lot of condensation. The tent is perfect for one person but is a little cramped for two people, unless they like being snuggly.
If weight is a big factor in your next tent purchase this tent is extremely light, and with the light pitch option (using the rainfly, footprint, and poles) the tent saves even more weight. Tent has plenty of mesh for warmer summer nights. This tent couldn't be easier to put together. With only one pole it is very simple and quick. I've had to put this tent together several times at night and have had no problems. Overall I'm very happy with this tent and would recommend it to anyone!
