I have owned over 30 tents thru the years. I now have 6 who have made the cut thru the years. Out of all of them, this one is number one. Just a solid, dependable piece of equipment. When I set this tent up anywhere I know I'm in good shape from the elements. Great for one or two persons with plenty of room for your equipment out of the elements with the huge vestibule.
Got stuck in this one for 3 days with torrential rain and very heavy wind. Not one drop got in, and this baby was the only one in the group that did not fold. At one point we had 5 inside playing cards. Stayed dry as a bone.
The materiales used in this tent are first rate. With a fair sized rear vestibule and rear entrance you don't have to trip over anyone in the middle of the night to come and go.Also with the two side vents at the top you can control the condensation issues. It has plenty of guy out points so you can really snug her down.
Splitting the weight between two makes this one a go for hiking.
If you can find one of these snag it. You won't be disappointed.

I picked this up cheap from the REI outlet for car camping and short backpacking tent.
The tent is really well built and has a great design.
Initial setup took awhile, so set it up at home before you head out.
Huge vestibules, 2 doors.
I'd say it's a semi freestanding design — you need to stake the body out before you would be able to stretch out in it.
This is my first MSR tent and I'm pretty impressed.
