Works fine. Light. Spacious.

Pros

  • Light
  • Simple setup and storage
  • Lots of space
  • Sturdy
  • No condensation

Cons

  • Takes up lots of ground space

1.2 pounds for a spacious two-person tent is pretty good. Use trekking poles for support. Tent stakes and ground cloth not part of the 1.2 pounds.

It really is spacious, and the vestibules are also huge. I use 8 stakes. In my use has stood up to over 40 MPH wind without any issues. Fits into provided stuff bag easily even with ground cloth attached.

Once you figure out how to erect it sets up really quickly. Takes about three times to get the setup routine perfected. Key is getting the first 4 stakes at 90 degrees (a rectangle in other words). It does take up more ground space than many two-man tents, because of the huge vestibules.

Those small rings near the tips of your walking sticks are for the pointy end of your two sticks, which are inserted handle towards the sky, and can be interested through the vent or through the vestibule to set up. The magnets to hold up the rolled up vestibule fabric works pretty well once you find it, it is tiny.

I only take the ground cloth off the tent if it gets wet so it can dry easily, otherwise it stays on until I get home. Waterproof zippers, two doors, two vestibules, no condensation, sets up fast protected from rain during setup, and easy to store.
