Light enough for one to carry, it will be luxurious; do-able for two, it will then be ultralight.

Four season-version of the already good performing Hogan Ultralight 1; the Argon is even more waterproof, versatile, and simply top of the game.

Design: four seasons
Sleeps: 2
Ease of Setup: very easy thanks to a pre-assembled skeleton

I have only used this tent 2 times so far and am extremely impressed to say the least. I have a Nemo Losi 2 man that is excellent but when temps get down to 40 or below, it is noticeable and the temps outside are obvious.

In the Hogan, I have had it to about 32-35 degrees 2 times and felt like it MAY be 55 degrees or more outside the tent. Is one of those things, unzip the fly and WEEEW! Get back in the tent! I can't believe how warm this tent is.

Granted it is me and my 75 lb malamute, but still. Significantly warmer than any other tent I have slept in. Can't wait to test it in the elements!

Love of my life and it could save yours. I have used the same Hogan for the last five years in all conditions and can say it is the easiest strongest and best tent I have used.

I have had used this tent for three years and it has functioned flawlessly. The shockcord suspension is great and the tent holds up to very high winds without a sign of stress. I have used this tent three summers in the high arctic (Ellesmere and Axel Heiberg Island, Canada) and the only sign of stress on it is the fly is showing signs of UV damage.

I contacted Vaude USA about this and the only way I can get a relplacement fly is if they have one laying around from a returned Hogan. This is a shame since the rest of the tent is still in great shape. I am not sure if they are still selling this tent (it is not in the 2002 catalog). It actually looks like they have abandoned the shockcord suspension all together. Too bad. Anyway, it has been a superb tent, not sure what I am going to replace it with.

Awesome, totally h20-proof and it's got two vestibules and it is really, really huge. Also has pockets and rainflaps. It's got five poles and it's really tough. I used it during a hurricane to test it and I was fine. There was one foot of water outside the tent. was very pleased.
