What a great shelter. I have spent many a wonderful night sleeping in the Sierra Nevada mountains over the last 4 years in this tent. I got it to be a luxury shelter for 1 (but it sleeps 2 very comfortably as a two person tent should) but still not load down my pack. In both roles it has far exceed my expectations.
I have had no major issue with the tent. It sets up in minutes, keeps me dry in the hardest late summer downpours, vents well and keeps condensation at bay. I did break a stake (they supply great Easton aluminum stakes) but that was after being pitched and slammed by a rock for three years of use its bound to happen and this is a ultralight weight shelter. So not big deal.
The only changes I would wish for it would be few inches more head room, and a vestibule that extended just about 6 inches lower when pitched taunt. But those are just nick picking points in honesty. And for me could be mostly found in the newer "Moment" if I was in need of replacing the current tent but I don't see that happening for awhile.
