Probably one of the best 3-season tents I have ever owned. I’ve used it several times now including twice in early spring on Emory Peak in Big Bend. It holds up great in rain and hard wind. I like the entire mesh top, opposed from the HP, because on nice nights you can view the stars without being bothered by insects. It's the closest thing to being tent-less.
Now that being said, this is not the warmest tent, it keeps out the wind and rain but you better have a good sleeping bag; the design however helps keep condensation almost 99% out of the tent when wearing the fly and allows good circulation. After I got it dirty on trips it was very easy to clean with just warm water and sunlight. I do suggest the footprint though and maybe some ground hog stakes if you are going to be in harsher elements.
One thing I would've liked to see in this (and other tents) would be at least one poly window on at least one vestibule of the fly. This is just my preference.
I know this is an expensive tent but it is priceless on hot and humid trips where you can’t hang a hammock or sleep near a fire in the open. It’s light enough for me to carry on my own but roomy enough for two 6' people to sleep comfortably.
