Great tent. Setup is a breeze, even I did it the first time in the dark in about 5 minutes or less. Great air flow.
All the benefits of a tarp style tent but with the protection of a normal tent. Love the fact that bugs can't get in. Big enough for one person and a 3000ci pack inside and out of the rain.
You do have to use an adjustable trekking pole for the front, but if you are already using poles then you might as well use them on your tent at night.
If you are looking for a superlight tent that still gives you the comfort of bug netting and full coverage then it's hard to beat this 24.5 oz tent.
