So far I have been really happy with this tent. I have only slept in it maybe 4 times, but even on the dunes of White Sands it was light and easy to setup.
I am 6'3 215 lbs. and I fit in there absolutely fine. I had a small pack with me a few times and there is so much headroom when laying down that I went ahead and kept the pack inside instead of leaving it covered in the vestibule. I was worried about the headroom and thought I might have to go up to the Hubba or Hubba HP because they do have larger headroom when sitting up, but this one is fine for me.
I have no complaints yet, but I have not been caught out in a storm yet either and that is the only reason I have not given it a 5 star.
It has been good enough that I am taking it on the Colorado Trail next week and I will try to post results after that. If I ever do a solo car camp somewhere and I have a choice between this or an easy 2 man tent and they are both in the car, this is absolutely fine.
I do have 5 tents and another lighter Mountain Hardwear solo tent, but it is too small to sit up in and not freestanding, so I like this one a lot better.
Design: three season freestanding solo
Ease of Setup: For me I did not need the instructions at all
Price Paid: great price
