If you can still get one, pick it up.
- It is snug for two.
I bought this tent at an attic sale. The inner canopy is all mesh, and had a few holes, which I stitched, easily.
Overall, the tent has been solid. Out of the five backpacking tents I have, I choose this one most often for one or two, unless the hike is short and we want more space.
The hubbed poles pitch easily — grey over orange. Each pole end is color coded for the fly and ground sheet. The tent has weathered heavy rain and wind with no issues aside from a little wind blown rain getting up underneath the rainfly. I would not use this as a winter tent for that reason. With all the mesh, ventilation is excellent.
There are storage pockets inside that fit my headlamp & other items easily. I don't use the stuff sacks provided with any of my tents, as I like to separate the inner tent from the fly-from the poles for easier packability.
I've used it for two years with no issues.
