Overall, very easy to set up, packs up light and takes up little space. Footprint, poles, and fly clip and lock into place and stay secure.
Only criticism is the small size of tent and vestibule, but it is a one-man tent so that is to be expected. Vestibule barely contained my pack and boots; would have been an issue in rainy weather.

Price Paid: $104
Lightweight, freestanding tent with sturdy poles; quick setup; a tight space for one, but useful for small spaces in the woods. I love that the top of the tent is all mesh—great view into the sky when the rain fly is off.
- Door is at head of tent (instead of along the side)
- Tight quarters
This will work well for me as a supplemental tent for when I'm solo on a bikepacking trip where light weight and small size is essential. Poles seem very durable and I like the Jake's Foot pole connection design. I'm not sure about longterm durability, but it seems very durable.
Lightweight, spacious, free standing. Need I say more?

Lightweight, spacious, free standing. Need I say more? This tent is so easy to set up, you don't even need instructions!
- Easy to use
- Tent stakes could be lighter
The only thing I would change about this tent are the stakes that come with it. Besides that, this tent was made in heaven.
I will be using this tent during the PCT thru hike. I know I won't be disappointed since SD always makes wonderful products!
