Summary: Your grandchildren will be using this tent, it is that well made. NEVER a leak, even in torrential monsoon that forced others to abandon their Eureka and N. Face into the Staika. Built tough and it is a bit heavy because.
Pros: Strong, Will last indefinitely if cared for, Easy to set up

Summary: I have added an update to my Staika experiences through September in the detailed review. I am impressed with my new Hilleberg Staika. The evident durability of the materials, fully free standing design, 36 square foot floor space, water pressure rating, zipper size, dual door and roof venting features, and the pitching feature of inner and outer tent together were the deciding factors.
Pros: Plenty of room at the head and foot end as well as overhead, Waterproof, No condensation on two warm muggy nights, Will last
Cons: None considering the heavier materials are expected to weigh more than a smaller tent with less durable materials.

Excerpt: What makes an initial good impression is this tent's free-standing quality and it's ability to be lifted and placed exactly where it needs to be for sleeping purposes. The 2 door vestibules are also part of the free-standing dome structure and therefore do not need to be staked out. As with nearly all Hillebergs, this tent has a suspended inner tent which is supported by the 3 poles clipped onto the outside of the silicone/Kerlon fly.
