Design: Freestanding dome
Ease of Setup: Excellent with practice

I am about to purchase the second one - I lost the last one in a divorce and she was right to demand it! This tent saved me on several occasions over 10,000 feet in rain, snow and wind that other tents would not. I have spent days waiting for weather to clear in this tent. Other tents I have owned just did not stand up. After hours they would begin leaking. This tent never leaked. I have experienced ice inside at cold temperatures but other tents have done the same.
I trust my life to this tent. Before footprints I made my own and I recommend using one to preserve the floor.
I find it easy to set up but I practice with anyone I am taking with me on long trips.
