Summary: Not what I expected. However, very light load to pack on your bag, and I will admit that it definitely stays very dry and circulates air very well. I used it camping out in New Hampshire in the White Mountains and a few local places and was surprisingly comfortable considering the size. One big downfall is that water pools up on top of the dome of the rain fly.

Summary: My main quibble with the tent is that it has a low spot in the fly between the 2 poles so condensation collects on the inside and starts dripping on your sleeping bag at some point during the night. If you get lucky and the condensation freezes while it happens you just have to get up early enough in the morning before it has a chance to melt and start dripping.

Summary: This tent will sleep 2 people, but I suggest those 2 people really like each other. 2 sleeping pads, even short ones, will overlap at the narrow end of the tent. I prefer to use it as a 1 person tent, which allows me to bring all of my gear inside, except for my boots which fit nicely under the vestibule. The narrow design means my tent fits in several places that wider tents dare not travel.

Summary: Great tent for backpacking. Lightweight, easy to set and take down. The 2 ppl refers to sleeping only. I got it for myself because I like having the extra room. The vestibules on each side will hold pack and boots fine. The tunnel design give lots of room to those who are tall. It is high enough to sit up in, but not much more. Kept me dry during rain. However, this tent does need to be staked tightly for best results against rain.

Summary: The Crestone 2 is a jack-of-all-trades tent, but it's a master of none. For its weight, the Crestone 2 has quite a bit of room when you're laying down, but it is limited sitting space. It also has two doors is which is nice. When the rainfly is pitched, there's enough of an overhang to keep boots and packs dry. Setting the tent up is fairly easy thanks to a color-coded clip desing. The rain-fly snaps easily into side-buckles.
