Summary: This tent is a backcountry luxury. It has two fairly large vestibules (10.5 square feet each) to store large packs and boots, and there is plenty of room for two inside. I have slept comfortably inside at 6'1" with another person who was 5'10". One night we got two people and one 68 pound dog inside – doable, but certainly not recommended.

Summary: My friend and I lived in this tent for 6 weeks while we hiked around New Zealand in the spring. We did several multi day hikes, the weight wasn't an issue as we took turns carrying the fly/ground sheet or the stakes and poles but I don't think I would want to carry the whole thing on my own (plus gear) for any multi day hikes.
Summary: Summary LOVE IT !!!!!!!!!!! I am 5' 10" and my brother is 6' 1" and we both fit very comfortable in this. My Clip Flashlight was just tooooooo small for anything other than solo trips. The dual vestibules make it a perfect tent for short excursions and provide plenty of room for full size packs. I wouldn't want to lug this around by myself as it is a bit heavier, but overall it is an excellent tent and I am glad I upgraded to it.

Summary: I use the tent for four months across Africa. The tent is good for weekender, nice campground or beach camping. The pole a light but after extend use they crack. The floor had hole and was needed to use duct tape to patch it. Zipper were olding but got broke also. Vestibule nice and large but can't fully close it due to configuration. I'm very happy with my purchase except that this tent wasn't the tent to use in such condition.

Summary: I bought this tent two years ago and have never regretted it. I got it in February and my wife and I were so excited we set it up in our snow free back yard to try it out. We awoke to find that four inches of snow fell that night and did not notice. We stayed warm and dry through other unpredictable weather. Very low condensation and the vestibules really add a lot gear space or great cooking places if the weather is bad.

Summary: We got this tent four years ago, along with the now-discontinued Twilight 3P. We have used it backpacking and car camping in all kinds of weather. One trip to the Smokies, it rained for three days straight. On the fourth day, we were not only dry as a bone, but had the campground to ourselves. Another time, we had a inch-thick sheet of water flow through our camp for three hours. Not a drop inside.

19 October 2008
Summary: I've been enjoying this tent on a cross country trip involving hot and cold nights. Pros: Amazingly easy to setup. I often arrive at campsites in the dark and can set this tent up by myself in dim light in less than 10 minutes. I'll also note that shutdown is just as easy and I'm very comfortable packing it up quickly in a way that stores well and allows quick re-setup at the next sight.

22 September 2008
Summary: I used this produce on a week long bike trip across Iowa. Overall, the tent stood up to incredible demands. On two separate occasions the tend stood up to sustained 30 mph winds with gusts exceeding 50 mph. Inside of the tent, I had no idea that the wind had even gotten that bad. I watched out of the portal as my neighbor's tent blew over, and decided it was time to seek shelter. When I returned the tent was still standing tall. There was ample room for two people.

Summary: So I haven't used the tent on the trail yet, but just received it yesterday and set it up in my apartment. I'm giving it 5 stars for now and if need be, I'll change it after I make use of the tent this weekend. I'm giving it such a high grade because the tent's size to weight ratio is phenomenal. 34 sq. ft. for just under 5.5 lbs. total weight is ridiculously good for this price. I'm 6' tall and can stretch out fully in this tent.

7 April 2008
Summary: A great tent for a great price. It appears to "list" at a very high price, but lots of sites sell it for something in the $200 range. Just brought the Twilight 2P for a camping trip in Red Rock Canyon, NV, and it was wonderful. Slept two people and a small(ish) dog inside without a complaint. If it's nice out, the screened top provides a great view and air flow. Very pleased with this purchase.
