We haven't used this tent much, but so far it seems to be of good quality and is super light weight (for a 3 person). I would recommend using the footprint as the tent floor doesn't seem to use very thick material.
Okay, the bottom line on this tent is that its a well made, well designed freestanding tent that has a TON of space and weighs in at right around 3 and a half pounds.I wanted it to go section hiking with my teenage daughter and was initially looking at the same model UL 2. Then I started comparing the space and weight dimensions, and realized I could get all that extra room for like 6 oz more. Totally worth it.The tent itself is a breeze to set up, we did it with no instructions in 5-10 min the first time. The fabric is very lightweight but looks sturdy enough, and the mesh will be nice for hot weather. I love the fly design: vents, plenty of attachment spots, nice amount of vestibule space and easy off and on.My only real quibble is I wish it had 2 zip side doors instead of one but for what you get that's minor.Honestly, if Big Agnes marketing department was being smart they would market the heck out of this thing for the space/weight ratio. 2 adults plus any packs/gear fits.
