Excerpt: I slept in this tent for 2 weeks up in Nor Cal. It rained a total of 4 days without one drop of water inside the tent! I had read that the fly didn't work well and I had no choice but to test it out on the first major Pacific Northwest storm to hit the coast in Oct 2009..

Excerpt: Not too shabby. Water-tight, lightweight, reasonably spacious for two people, two doors / vestibules = awesome, solid construction, nice windows, easy entry / exit, packs down fairly small (I use a more compact stuff sack than the one Marmot supplies). Not too shabby ...

16 October 2008
Excerpt: I waited to get this tent until the price came down. It was definitely worth the wait. Setup is easy and can be done by one person in just a few min. Total weight is a bit heavy for a two man (wow the 4 pound tents have spoiled us) but the extra room more than makes up for it.

Excerpt: I love this tent. It is so awesome! I've used it more than about 5 times in the past year. However, I've only used it while car camping in Northern California and not while backpacking. It's a bit heavy for me backpacking since I usually sleep solo.

Excerpt: Since I bought this tent back in Aug 2007, I have used it on 3 backpacking trips, 2 of which included rain, one all night throughout the morning (including packing up in the rain). Not a drop of rain in the tent! As other reviewers have illustrated, pitching the tent correctly is key to staying dry.

Excerpt: I decided to drop a few big ones on this tent since the weight of my Sierra Designs Antares was getting to me. I LOVE this tent! It is incredibly light for its size, and moving it around after it's been pitched is exceedingly easy.

Excerpt: I purchased this tent after reading nothing but good things about it in several leading outdoor magazines. I recently used it on a trip to Big Bend with my girlfriend and it performed very well.
I have been wanting this tent ever since I saw it.
6 August 2006
Excerpt: I have been wanting this tent ever since I saw it. It helps that it was an Editors Choice award for 2006 from Backpacker magazine. I didn't want to pay over $300 hundred but saw it on sale miraculously for $229. So me and my girfriend took it out for a spin this weekend.
