"My girlfriend and I have taken my M.H. Skyview 2 tent motorcycle camping many times since I bought it last spring. It's been a damn fine tent, quite roomy, snug with the rainfly and when the skylight panel is zipped in, and quite airy without the panel and when the doors (two of 'em) are opened up. I find the shape of the tent, kind of an elongated pentagon, to be quite roomy, even with two people and our gear. Throw on the rainfly and the vestibule adds a wonderfully-sized extra room for wet gear & plenty of space for cooking. It's withstood a couple heavy downpours with nary a trickle of water. I wouldn't hesitate taking it backpacking if two people split the load: rainfly & poles/tent and footprint. Sure it's nine pounds, but remember, this IS a two-person tent."

"We took this tent car camping down the Oregon coast for 5 days
in March then a 5 day summer trip in July. March was damp and
cool at night, July very warm. We slept 2 adults and 2 small dogs
comfortably. I think in a pinch 3 people could have had a
comfortable stay. During the March trip, the tent was warm and
dry with the flysheet on and ventilation worked well. It did stay
dryer inside when I staked the flysheet. It has 2 doors which really
make a difference with canines and people going in and out! I am
5 feet tall and could set the tent up with ease even in the dark. I
wouldn't backpack with it because it is a bit heavy, but the
vestibule on the flysheet on is huge and the zip out roof really was
great on the warmer nights in July. I think it is a good tent for
car-camping, kayaking and if you have a llama ; ) but I would give
pause before I took a log self-contained hike with it."

"I bought mine about 5 years ago...holding up very well...got sand in a zipper and stopped part of it, but still workable...always have stayed dry and warm in numerous summer downpours, and early frosts...a little pricey and a little heavy, but would rather have this, than something less.."

"I purchased mine 3 years ago. High quality with no shortcomings in design or workmanship. Nice, roomy tent for 2 people with a huge vestibule, Headroom and elbow room are very very good. Nice night/skyview. Super ventilation. A little heavy for summer backpacking, but overall, I have not been disappointed in selecting this tent"

"My husband and I purchased our tent about 11 years ago when our son was born and we outgrew our smaller 2-person tent. Since then we've used it backpacking and car camping. It also had a period of about 3 years of strict storage in which we did not once remove it from the bag. Overall it has held up wonderfully. No zipper issues, leakage, fabric deterioration, pole or loop problems. . .nothing. The see-through square in the vestible is, I think, a little silly as it adds unnecessary weight without significant light gain, but the star-gazing without the fly is outstanding. It is roomy and, with the fly, dry and warm. We have had it fit ourselves and our sons very easily when they were younger - we recently took it backpacking and put the whole family (2 adults, 3 kids, 10, 7 and 5) in it and were snug, but comfortable. The only downside of this tent is the weight; with the fly and the footprint it's pretty heavy. At some near point we're going to need to have two separate tents backpacking, but for our younger family it's been a great tent."
