In my humble opinion, this is the BEST 2-man mountain tent in the world. Put it up at Sligachan on Skye (that's in Scotland), and you have the best, most sexy looking tent in a campsite that's full of the best of the rest.
I camped on the shore at John O'Groats, and in the morning the chap in the tent next to us said he'd not slept a wink because of the wind. I'm not a deep sleeper, but I didn't even notice the wind!
This tent is built like a brickhouse. There's nothing better than being able to trust fully the tent you're in, no matter what the elements throw at it, and that's the feeling I get with the Super Quasar.
With two people, it still has space to spare. It's got good headroom, and the porches are as big as you'd need. The doors open in all kinds of configurations. The fabric is absolutely excellent.
Everything about this tent is top quality.
My only gripes are:
The doors have stiffened storm hoods which makes getting in a little difficult.
It's a bit on the heavy side if you were backpacking alone.
