Summary: This tent is insanely light, and I don't get why I didn't know about it until I picked it up in an outdoor store and had my mind explode. It's incredibly small and light, but also extremely durable. It basically sets itself up too, it takes like two minutes to be cozy inside. and it's definitely cozy. Do not get this tent for three people unless you are tiny people and don't want to fit any of your gear inside.

Summary: So I am an avid backpacker and have really enjoyed going lightweight, i.e. a nice bivy sack or just bug netting. However, my friends don't seem to enjoy the same level of excitement. So when I purchased this tent last summer, I kept thinking it would be a great tent for two, but fully functional for three. As it turned out, I was correct. I have used it as a two person tent several times with great success.

Summary: Great tent but like many three person tent it's just an oversized regular two-person tent. The reason I say that is because even though the floor plan may be large the walls slope down considerably, not giving you much room for three people unless you guys are playing cards. Forget about laying three regular Therm-a-rests in there. It will not fit without some serious overlapping.

Summary: I think that I'm in love... Good weather? Take a SL3! It's a bug screen with a fly. What more do you need? Maybe it's a little small for 3 dudes but for a couple of people it's perfect. Not raining?- 360 deg. views w/o bugs. If it's raining - fly is tight and all condensation goes to fly through screen. If there are no bugs and it's not raining... Well why did you bring a tent at all? Plus it's light. Chill out ULers - I didn't say 'ultra-'.
