Great tent, I have used it for backpacking, floating and car camping in Missouri, Arkansas, and one summer trip to Estes Park, CO. I have owned it for about a year and a half. Strengths: Light, kind of, for its size, easy to set up, solid in wind(National Weather Service confirmed steady 40mph winds, gusts to 60mph), always stayed dry, breathes well,
extra head room.

Weaknesses: the vestibule is a pain to stake out,
difficult to really tie down if the weather is going to be rough, at $220 it is too expensive, need to buy extra stakes and ropes.

Overall a great tent if you can find it on sale!!!
