Just returned from Mount Washington and have to stop myself from gushing about this tent.

Handled the Jan 12 snowstorm with aplomb. Snow loading is a non-issue.

Surprisingly breathable despite the humid conditions always encountered at MW, and our using the floor-flap as cooking space. The stove pipe vents were extremely functional. In the morning, the Sierra Designs logo would have frost buildup inside the tent, the windows would be frosted, but the walls were frost-free.

Setup was easy but taking down was even easier. Now my only regret is not having bought 2 for when I wear out the first one!



Note that this review concerns the pre-2015 version of this tent, very different from the new version, which needs to be reviewed. I'm taking a close look at it but not ready to take the leap.
