Summary: I picked this up cheap from the REI outlet for car camping and short backpacking tent. The tent is really well built and has a great design. Initial setup took awhile, so set it up at home before you head out. Huge vestibules, 2 doors. I'd say it's a semi freestanding design — you need to stake the body out before you would be able to stretch out in it. This is my first MSR tent and I'm pretty impressed.
Summary: This is a nice tent and a good price, 10,000 mm H2O proofing? Awesome...although I bought mine from sunny sports for 225 shipped. All over the internet they are 359.00 plus. So the Amazon price with the free shipping is A-Ok. This is a tunnel tent(awesome). Huge inside and 2 gigantic vestibules. Very well thought out and easy to pitch. Most tunnel tents are sold only in the UK australia and new zealand. They can handle the wind, rain and hard gale's.
