A great tent. I'm 6'6" and the length is outstanding. I don't kick the ends. The 2 man version provides gobs of room for me. It has good ventilation and goes up quickly and easily.
I like how it packs down to 20" length. Great for bicycle camping. Two vestibules allow for plenty of storage. If you can find this on closeout (and they are out there) it is a fantastic bargain.

I just returned from yet another great trip with this tent. After helping families put together several other models, all of which had water in them after heavy rain, I am so impressed with this little tent.
Dry, light, quick to assemble and with the two doors, each with their own vestibule. The walls stayed dry and it easily sleeps one person with lots of gear or two "normal" (but not too wide) people. The ground outside was crawling with cockroaches and not one found a way in.
Highly recommended from this Scoutmaster in Hawaii.

This tent is amazing.
I've used many a tent, and this one takes the cake. It is a freestanding pseudo-dome with a hubbed-pole design which makes it very strong. High winds glance off the tent, and after sleeping through a few storms in it I've determined it definitely does not leak.
There are five pockets in the tent (three on the ceiling, and two HUGE pockets at the ends) to hold needed items like glasses, or maybe a few pairs of wet socks.
The vestibules on this tent are one of its shining features. It is probably one of the few two man tents that can truly hold two men, comfortably. ALL of your gear can fit in the two vestibules, and if you aren't camping on a hill, none of that gear will get wet.
Something about getting into a tent from the side, rather than the front, is priceless. No need to crawl all over your sleeping bag and other stuff, you can sit inside the tent, zip up the rain-fly, leave your muddy boots in the vestibule, and climb into bed with no hassle at all. (not to mention there are two doors so midnight bathroom runs wont disturb your buddy)
If you can find this tent, get it. You'll love it. It is a very nice tent, I hope to use it for many years to come.

Excellent tent design with every conceivable option.Two roof vents and lots of mesh keep this cool in the summer. Sturdy cross-pole design creates nearly vertical walls. Brow pole keeps rain and snow from pooling on the top and opens up the roof vents. Great headroom even with the built in gear loft and flashlight ring. Two additional ceiling pockets for glasses or flashlights. Two more large pockets on each end.
Windows in both large vestibule doors and an octagon shaped fly that you don't have to crawl under to get into the tent. Huge 37 sq. ft. floor plan for a 5 lb. backpacking tent; supports two large sleeping pads with room to bring your packs inside. Poles fold down to 18" to create a 6" x 20" pack size. Ingenious guy line tighteners. Best backpacking tent I've found so far.
