So far a good tent - it's lightweight and SUPER easy/fast to setup. I bought it for my boyfriend last Christmas, and we have used it a few times. I bought it originally for backpacking and summit adventures since it is lighter and more compact than all of our hammock gear (plus we can cuddle & keep warm & not worry about finding trees). It's enough room for the both of us to sleep comfortably and sit upright if needed (he's 5'11" 190lbs & I'm 5'8" 140lbs). The side access to our gear is really helpful and even though it only has one door, on e of us can sneak out for a pee break in the middle of the night without waking the other. We have not yet rain tested it, but it got some condensation inside of the tent when it rained the night before. I live in the southeast so all of my tents have condensation due to the humidity down here so it may not just be the tent. So far we enjoy it, and I'll try to update this review after more use and some rain.
"Great quality tent for the casual backpacker"
The tent was made great the materials on this cheaper model still feel like top of the line. The limited ventilation makes this tent great for spring and fall trips. I was expecting the base fabric to be a little thicker but haven't had an issue with it yet. The poles are super light and it comes with everything you could ever need. the line lockers make tightening down the tent super easy so you don't need to worry about getting the steak in the ground perfectly. The large front door does take some getting used to and it is hard not to wake up ur partner when getting out.
I purchased this for my son, and it is every bit as good as I thought. Goes up quickly, plenty of room inside, easy access to gear kept inside or out. The only things I don't like about it, and I'm sure it's a weight thing, is the narrowness of the back end, and the height. Seems a little tight for a 2-person tent at the back end, and the height drops a little too fast, limiting where I can sit out a hard rain.Other than that, SD has scored another great tent. Almost makes me want to give up my Alpha-CD!
