this tent stayed warm in 35 degree weather. Its vestibule is real small...will fit boots. supposed to be two man..not unless they're real skinny. for one person there's some room for gear but not much. I used it in real cold weather like 0 degrees. The frost buildup on the outside fly was real heavy and felt like i was in the deep freeze when i woke up. The end of the tent has a huge clear mesh screen that i know in high winds would make the tent a wind tunnel inside. The company says it's a 3 and a half season tent. I was lucky enough to have no winds whatsoever in the new hampshire woods in january. ALSO since the company claims it can withstand blizzard-like conditions, I figured it would be fine in southern new frigid conditions the end pole wouldn't fit because of the cold..the fabric shrunk and had a wrestling match getting it in..and since it isn't freestanding there's no way i can imagine it could hold snow for long.The middle of it would cave in or be susceptible to that in a blizzard. For warmer weather it is awesome but real low to the ground. Can barely sit up in it at the entrance and wouldnt want to sit out rainstorm in it. For bikers it would be ok. I'm going for the Eureka Apex's cheaper and all the reviews rate it as good as the best and most expensive expedition tents found!
