NEMO Morpho 2P
Price Paid: $270
This tent has a lot to recommend it. I have used it on five or six weekend trips now. Just stake out the four corners and the airbeams inflate in a minute. With just those stakes, the tent is very stable.
It is truly roomy enough for two, and the front is high enough to sit up in. I am 6'2" and find the extra couple of inches in each dimension a major convenience. Entrance and exit for two is quite doable, and despite the single-wall design, you can keep the screen open to look at the stars on a clear night.
The screen-and-fly at the entrance also keeps the worst condensation off you in the morning. As with any single-wall, there will be some moisture inside, but I have found it is moderate. Take-down is equally quick and easy, and because it starts with the stakes, it is easy to set up solo in a wind.
If you also stake out the vent at the foot and the side vents, the tent is pretty well ventilated and moisture is minimized. In 30 mph winds with 7 stakes, the tent holds up fine and the airflow is not excessive.
I have used this a bunch of times, most recently in the Grand Canyon with a couple of Big Agnes Fly Creeks also in our group. The Nemo weighs about 40 ounces more than the 2-person Big Agnes, but holds up to weather better and provides much more cubic footage. I felt it was worth the extra weight, and in the gusty night, the Nemo made a lot less noise than the Big Agneses. It feels pretty bomb proof, and sets up much more easily in wind.
I have also been in the tent solo when the temperature unexpectedly plummeted to around 10 F, and it retained warmth quite well. I was fine in my 10-degree bag. It is not a 4-season tent, but clearly could handle mild winter camping.
I am giving it 4.5 stars because it is extremely good for what it is, but the weight is significant. It is hard to resist the 3-pound Big Agnes Fly Creek when the weather is expected to be mild, and you have to wonder if the thing could be lightened a bit.

Weight: Very light

The whole air beam thing is fantastic. The tent sets up in minutes and long after I am packed up others are still tearing down BUT I got tons of condensation in this tent. I realize this is common in single wall tents so maybe it really is not a tent issue but I did not know this fact earlier when I bought the tent.
I have since returned the tent and purchased a dbl wall tent.
I did find the Nemo well built, sturdy and would have been very happy if not for the rain shower inside the tent.
The tent also travel very small and comes with all that is needed.
