Bought this tent off of steep and cheap for, well, cheap! My intent was to use it as an inexpensive bivy tent for hunting, for which it has performed awesomely. I would definitely use it a ton more for camping, but I have two dogs and there is defo not room for them and me!

Superlight, but trade out the included stakes for ultralights. Takes up about as much space in my pack as a nalgene or my sleeping pad. Excellent.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Mountainsmith Altura 1-Person 3-Season Tent makes an ideal lightweight shelter if you backpack solo or if you don't feel like getting romantic with your buddies in their 2-person tent. With 23 square feet (94 x 35in) of internal space and large divider pockets, there's plenty of space for you and your gear. Mountainsmith constructed the Altura's body out of breathable mesh polyester for a view of the stars if you sleep without the waterproof fly. If the weather looks iffy, throw on the PU coated rainfly and snooze away. We specially ordered this version of the Altura with a grommet on the rainfly so you can prop it open with a trekking pole for additional ventilation without compromising weather protection.
