I wanted one tent to do everything and I found it! This bad boy is built to last and has the best ventilation out there. It has two huge doors and two huge windows, both of which can be zipped entirely closed with solid fabric panels or left open for the breezes to sweep through the no see um mesh. the vestibule is huge and can store packs, boots, etc... You can even cook in it if you are careful.

The fly has two roof vents and a vent over the rear door. Had it out in the rain for 5 days and not a drop came in. Moss suggests that it not be seam sealed and they are right. It's free standing and with all of the stakes and guylines in place will withstand the harshest winds and withstand the heavist snow loads.

I have only two teeny qualms. The floor layout is a little strange, it peaks at both ends and has space that is not utilized well. A rectangular floor plan would be a little better. It is also a little on the heavy side at about 10 lbs. Two hikers can split it and live like kings in the backwoods. It's a palace!

No one tent can do it all, but in all honesty this comes as close to doing everything as any tent I have ever seen. It was made in 2001 only and is has been discontinued for 2002 so if you see it jump on it.
