"I bought this local. I love it. I just got back from a trip to the redwoods and spent a week up there with my little girl. This thing is a champ. We got in a little later then I would have liked, it was dark. being that I had set it up once I was worried. No reason. It rained every day and it was as tight as you would expect from MSR.
"Okay it's orange. I know. Get past this and you discover that it's actually a very very nice piece of kit. It has a simple one pole design that fits into the inner to create the shape. It's nice and lightweight which makes it ideal for cycle touring or anyone who's looking to shave those grams out of a pack. The inside of the tent is very spacious - but remember I use this two man tent as a solo effort! It does keep the wind out rather nicely - although I do feel that it does have a slight tendency to lie down a bit when the wind really gets up. It's not really ideal for anyone hoping to engage in some stealth camping but it does make it easy to spot from a distance in inclement weather."
"I've taken it out on a few short trips and one long trip raining from 8000'-12000' in California. It's a great tent! Easy to set up, very straighforward, simple rectangular design with one door per side, and it's symmetrical, 2 vestibules, and it's almost all screen w/o the rainfly so you can gaze at the stars or use it as a mosquito-proof room to play cards and watch the sunset. You can cook in the vestibule by unzipping and folding back the doors just so so that the rain won't come into the tent, you can hang stuff inside and still have room, it's just a great tent, lightweight, golly!
Cons: it's a one-piece spider-like tent pole, so that's a vulnerability if it breaks."
