I got this on clearance from REI-outlet. At $84 it was hands down the best value for money I could find on the internet. So far it's proven to be a worthy shelter. I have used it 5 or 6 times on backpacks and mountaineering trips. I found it reliable and sturdy in winds. It's a little on the small side so fitting two people in it might be a tight squeeze.

Ease of Setup: simple
I have had this tent for around 8 years now and it has been solid! Through years and years of abuse nothing has ever failed.

In order to do this make sure you use they guy lines and you will never be wet. Overall... great tent!

Best tent I have ever owned. Between backcountry trail work and fire camp I have really put this little baby through the ringer. Many soggy days and no leaks. It fits two if need be but one has all the room they need. There is even a cot that will fit in it (after 6 weeks in fire camp a cot is a good thing). Great value!!!
