Rating: rated 3 of 5 stars
Design: three season
Sleeps: 2
Ease of Setup: Easy
Weight: >5 pounds
Price Paid: $90

This was my beginning tent as a backpacker. I have used it for 3 years in three-season weather, some snow, and tons of rain.

PROS: roomy, stormproof, head room, easy setup (color coordinated)

CONS: heavy (5 lbs, and I try to be lightweight), packed size is enormous(but goes well on external frame packs), condensation from dew will dampen any part of a sleeping bag that isn't on a mat (I use down), can come loose from stakes in high winds, and will turn over easily without a weight in it, hard to stuff (recommend getting your own stuff sack).
