Summary: Initially borrowed this tent from a friend who was bailing on a trip, so I wouldn't have to carry my two man tank. I was surprised by the roominess for such a light weight small tent. Good space inside and plenty of vestibule space outside. Held up well in the rain too. Nary a leak. Put a line across the top for hanging small items to dry. Very handy and not really in my way at all. Single pole setup is quick and easy as well.
Summary: This is an ideal tent for backpacking. It sets up in a snap, it has a functional vestibule, and plenty of headroom so you can set up in the morning and get dressed without condensation raining down on you.I've used this tent in moderate wind and storm and had no issues. It has plenty of anchors on it, so with a little line you could guy it out to withstand heavier weather.It is very narrow, so measure your pad and check the dimensions on the tent to make sure it will...
Summary: 5'9 male: Set up takes 2 minutes, easy to do in less than light conditions per color code tabs. (1) Pole that sets up-and- breaks down nice. Plenty of head room, can sit up, can move in tent. Zippers work the way they should, (2) stash pockets inside tent are nice. SUPER EASY to use with pole and rain fly as stand alone - Fly Only config.-- is heavy duty cover and and sets tight! YEP, I would recommend---was well thought out sub 3 pound tent.
Summary: I searched near and far for a good solo backpacking tent, and happily landed on this one. It packs up nice and small, is light, has kept me dry in some nasty stuff, has a larger vestibule than most solo tents, and the price is better than most competing tents. There are also several add-ons you can buy, including a gear loft and footprints for both the tent and vestibule.
Summary: I like this product because it is roomy for a single person. It has good ventilation with no condensation and pretty much sturdy against moderate wind. I love this tent. It is stylish, easy to set up, light weight, durable. Highly recomended.

Summary: I’ve owned this tent about 5 years, been on several trips Overall this is a great tent! This tent is freestanding and sets up fast, weight a little over 3 lbs. The only two concerns I ever had with this tent is condensation in the Northeast, however out West I’ve had no problems. The other concern is the rain fly when wet due to dew or rain it takes a long time to dry.
Summary: This tent cannot be beat when considering price, weight, and trail side prestige. I intentionally waited until the weather sucked to break this guy out. WInds in the 20mph's gusts to the 40's, temps in the high 30's F, moderate to heavy rain. Pretty much crap weather. I was warm (some of this can be attributed to my MH gear), dry and nearly wind free. I have NO complaints.
Summary: I had an MSR tent before that wasn't free standing and it was kinda a pain if you were by yourself. This being a free standing tent is awesome and is sooooo easy to put up and take down. Best tent I have bought in a long time.
Summary: I got this tent last summer and have used it on multiple occasions. The tent is very versatile because it can be used with just the rainfly or with the actual tent itself. Carrying the rainfly and groundcloth (sold separately) is a great option during the summer. When weight is not as much of an issue using the entire tent offers bug protection. Overall I would recommend this tent to anyone looking for a 3 season solo tent.

Summary: MSR has had another great success with this tent. This tent is excellent and has exceeded my expectations in the outdoors and on my back! I have used my tent 5 different times in different weather conditions. I got my tent as a Christmas gift and used it the next week in East Tennessee. We arrived at night and it is sooo easy to set up at night thanks to the yellow reflective cord. That night, it was below freezing and had very minimal condensation.
