"I really like the MSR MicroZoid. It sets up easily (3 stakes, 2 for the tent, 1 to guy out the vestibule). Well constructed, has withstood some severe storms without a leak. Good ventilation. It is rather low. But I prefer that as it sheds wind very well. All in all a very good 1 person shelter."

"I've used this tent only once and I thought it was very good for its intended purpose. It's easy to set up, doesn't fits in a small space, and it's light. Quality seems to be very good, and you get a very nice view of the sky at night. I'm glad I bought it."

"Could some more head room in the tent, but it works very well for the porpuse of lightweight camping. I've always been happy with the MSR products and I am looking forward to putting this tent to the test."

"The Microzoid excelled in some pretty wild weather on 120km hike in Australia. Good quality and very light. However, it is a little bit of a struggle getting in and out if you are a tall person."

"I love my Microzoid. Especially for the weight savings.

The tent sets up fast and easy. On a hike in Pennsylvania, it withstood a downpour that lasted more than 12 hours, no water found its way in except what came with on me.

Only 2 negatives, which I can live with. This sucker is tiny. If you are taller than 6 feet tall and like space, don't buy it. You may as well call it a bivy.

Along with that, I wish it had more vestibule space.

Sorry, one last thing. I have a pole snap while on a trip. It was easy to repair with the included pole repair sleeve and Cascade replaced it for free.

Happy Trails!"

"I love this tent. It is perfect for three season use. I t i extremly light and packs down preety small. i hiked with it on a 70k and it did fine. It lasted through some heavy storm and had no water come in. One thing though, if your over 6 ft consider a different tent."

"Even at 6+ feet I love this little tent. A bit of a pain getting in and out but for the weight, pack size and durable construction it makes trekking the Montana mountains fun. Even my Dana pack and boots fit under the vestibule. I am getting a MSR Zoid for the wife."

"I really like this tent. It has been with me for over two hundred miles and has faired well in all sorts of weather. The only problem I had was purely phsycological. I had an aggressive coyote circle and and jab his nose into the side of the tent one night and felt vulnerable due to limited movement inside the tent. Worth the$$$$"

"I personally need more room. I'm 5'5" and this tent was entirely too small. If you're paring down to save weight, a bivy sac is a better bet. Lighter and less fragile. I'd hate to be stuck in a rain storm in this tent, you can't sit up to read, you can't even pull your knees to your chest while laying flat on your back. It feels like a coffin and you have to be an acrobat to get in and out of it. And FORGET it if you have a right-zip sleeping bag - the door's on the left. Maybe take it along if you're planning on sleeping outside anyway, and you need a tent for backup in case a freak storm blows in. I might keep this tent solely for the ultra light configuration that it can do -just the footprint and the rainfly."

"Used it in both regular and fast-pack configuration.

Awesome tent! Kept me dry 3 days straight on a very wet backpacking trip. It is light and the benefits of fastpack setup, makes is a breeze to setup quickly."
