Voted 5/5

This tent is well designed -- light, strong, and relatively spacious. The biggest drawback is that it is not tall enough to allow you to sit completely upright. I used it on a 4 day winter trip in the Sierras where it brushed off a windy storm at 12,000' without any concerns. I found the ventilation system to be nice and effective. So far I am happy with this tent and am looking forward to subjecting it to a wider range of conditions.
