LOVED this since 2007.The biggest concern about this tent is probably the size. I'm 5'8, 165lbs., and this tent has never caused any problems. It's true that the vestibule is pretty limited. There's definitely no room for a pack under the vestibule, but that's never been a problem. I take out everything that's sensitive or handy to have overnight, and then seal up my pack and leave it outside, brush off the dew in the morning. The layout of the tent actually leaves a lot of available space inside. The bottom of my sleep pad is usually right up against the foot of the tent. This means that when I'm sleeping there's all kinds of space around my shoulders and over my head.

Great value for moneyVery comfortable for a lightweight solo tent. am 5 feet 10 inches and I do not feel constricted at all. Does well in heavy weather, both wind and rain. I would highly recommend attaching additional lines to guy out the fly to the 2 attached points for wet weather conditionsThe small vestibule keeps my boots dry. It does seem to get a little condensation on the inside of the fly in high humidity conditions, as do most tents with a fly that protects as well as this one does in the rain.,,One drawback is the way that the fly attaches to the tent, with small but difficult clips. Great backpacking tent, sets up in minutes. Reflective tape on fly is a plus.

Not too shabby. A nice little tent overall.My only real issue with this tent is the relatively small size of the vestibule. There is really not much storage space in this tent.,,,,Not too small, but I wouldn't say very roomy either. If you are a quick, fast adventurer who won't be spending too much time in the tent, this thing is a good bet for a reliable shelter. However if you want to lay back, cook, read or play cards with someone, check out a 2 person tent for sure. Seriously. ,,,,Oh and by the way I believe the experience with this tent may be subjective. I am 6'2 and about 175lbs. Someone who is much smaller than I am may find this tent to be more along the lines of a solo palace rather than a tight, cramped space.,,,,,,
