This is the simple, three-pole design makes for a surprisingly spacious interior without sacrificing the wind-shedding profile

This is 3 season - 4 season conversable tent. There are 3 big mesh windows (2 entrance and 1 top) that can sealed with zipping cover.
Thus you can use it any time, any place.

A really large overhead window provides excellent ventilation, and, just above it, a clear UVX window in the fly lets in light and a view.
Zipping in the removable, ripstop cover converts the tent to four-season use

Two full-size doors allow unfettered entry/exit. Both have mesh or fabric options - choose between ventilation or weather protection/privacy.

As a 4 season tent, this is a very light weight tent (only 8.5 lbs or so).
Its a kind of heavy as 3 season tent. But, its only 6.5 lbs without a tent fly

Sky window is a nice touch and gives you a better idea of the weather outside without having to open the doors.

It has a vestibule, but very small. You can store only boots and couple of small gear in it.

Since its unique fly design (right side and left side is not equal), you need plactice to set up the fly before you bring it to the camp. (You need to set up 4th pole to set up the fly)

ShinLVGreat 3-4 season conversable tent

Voted 5/5

I bought this tent for 4 season tent. Its very light weight (only 8.5 lbs) as a 4 season tent.
I brought it to the Winter backpacking and so far there were no problem on this tent.

I also brought it to the early/late Summer season and it really worked, cuz I can open up the mesh window when its worm and close up when its cold at night.

The small clear window is a plus. I don't have to open the door to check the outside condition (snow etc...)

3 pole design makes this tent set up really easy.

So far, I love this tent.
