carried the three pounds with footprint 1900 miles on the appalachian trail. would not recommend. ventilation poor.

susceptible to leakage. sweaty. biggest disadvantage is lack of fresh air while sleeping. also I'm 5'10 200lbs, cramped conditions in settled rain spells, wet floor can be catastrophic in worsening weather conditions. snapped carbon pole early on in first wind gap storm. big agnes or better tarptent would seem to me a better selection.

still it's my main shelter until I can afford better. I'll invest 350 in a western mountaineering bag before upgrading this shelter, that's for the AT only.
