Great tent! I use it as a roomy 1 person tent. I spent 2 days in a very hard rain, and keep fairly dry, had 1 small drip from the rainfly where the guy out tab is sewn. Seam sealed later on, problem fixed.
Great Sierra Designs quality. They could of color coded the back pole. That pole is longer than the other two. If you set up at night,and have never set the tent up before, might be a little puzzling, all the poles look the same. A tad heavy for backpacking, unless you split it up with a your hiking companion.

This two-person, three-season backpacking tent has all the bells and whistles anyone would ever need. SuperSeal floor, two large vesitubles with two doors and plenty of interior space make it a phenomenal tent. Large poled vestibules offer each camper 10 square feet of storage and a shelter from the elements. SuperSeal Floor™ combines the benefits of catenary and bathtub floors; raised side seams are taped for complete waterproofness. Stash Doors™ can be opened from the side or bottom and stashed out of the way in internal pockets. DAC Featherlite® poles improve strength-to-weight ratio; Clip-Locs™ at pole intersections increase stability in windy conditions. Swift Clips™ make tent setup faster and easier, particularly in high winds. Optic white tent canopy offers increased light transmission for a brighter living space. Color-coded webbing makes pitching this tent easier than making your bed! Reflective guyout loops allow night visibility; reflective noiseless zipper pulls are easy to see and eliminate that annoying jingle when it's windy. A multitude of gear pockets keep gear organized and up off the floor. A Sierra Designs exclusive, Tent Guard with Ultra-Fresh treatment helps prevent the growth of odor-causing fungus and mildew to extend tent's life. Comes with stakes, guylines and tighteners and stuff sacks. Fastpack option allows poles, rainfly and footprint (sold separately) to be used together without the tent body to create an ultra-light shelter. Discontinued.
