Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $319

Summary

This feather weight streamlined tent has incredible interior space. The tent has almost 17 cubic feet of space. The vestibule has 10 cubic feet of space. This is a must for the solo backpacker who is in many environments. The total weight is 2 lb 5oz.

It is able to be set up with the footprint and the outer cover only making it even lighter. I actually had several days of rain and due to the ability of setting up the outer cover first, I was then able to get inside and set up the tent portion keeping all my gear dry (complete bonus). It also withstands high winds and heavy rains.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Easy setup
  • Set in rain with footprint and rain cover first, then stay dry tent setup

Cons

  • Requires staking the tent

Features Include:

  • Crossing ridge pole maximizes interior space and provides a dry entrance
  • Large door and vestibule
  • High-low ventilation
  • Hubbed poles and color-coded webbing make for quick, easy setup

I love this tent!  A great purchase.
