"This is a good one-person backpacking tent: lightweight, well-made and pretty easy to set up. It also stands up to high winds if it's staked down and the two guylines are in place and tightly strung. It's not freestanding and it's kind of cramped inside if your over 6 feet tall and broad-shouldered like me, but at only 3 pounds & 4 ounces (including stakes, poles and everything else) that's a trade-off I'm willing to take. I haven't used it in the rain yet but the fly and floor seams are factory seam-taped and shouldn't leak.
At around $119 it's reasonbly priced. I bought mine for $79, but it was a '99 model that was on clearance sale. The current version gives you a choice of colors: green or gold. The old version came in gold only. Overall, this is a good choice if you want a solo tent that weighs only a little more than a bivy sack."

"Very light and best that I have ever used. Used it in hot and humit asia and the windy hills in Ireland and this small one man tent has never let me down."
