Rock solidI set this up in the backyard for a couple of days so I could practice using it before taking it out in the bush/trail. I used this in the atlantic winter storm (cape breton, ns) on Dec 20-22 2008. We got roughly 15-20cm of snow/ice with sustained winds of 50-80kmh and gusts up to 120kmh, it performed quite well. This is a comfortable one man or cozy two man tent. If you don't use the vents properly you will get condensation. The last tent I used was like 20 years ago and they have changed quite a bit since so this only gets 4 stars due to my lack of experience with other newer tents. Overall I slept really well despite temps. ranging from -1c to -12c and extreame wind with blowing snow/ice. The fly didn't really "flap" in the wind enough to keep me awake, I made sure it was quite taut and everything was fine.
The seams are all factory sealed and the stitching is tight, nothing leaked. Get the floor saver, it's cheaper than buying a new tent. I haven't used this in the field yet but overall the quality is pretty good and I don't anticipate any problems.
It came with 15 7" lightweight alum. "J" pegs, 10 7' ish guy lines with tightners, pole bag, and stake bag. You will need to get some more pegs to fully guyout the fly. The one's that came with it are not durable enough for me and bend easy when staking in rocky ground. Oh yeah it's not really yellow (rain fly) it is a bright almost flourescent orange, you won't lose it in the bush that's for sure.
Things I like:
Super easy set-up.
Withstood 120kmh wind gusts without hardly moving.
Sheds snow and ice pretty well.
Tons of extra guyout loops.
Decent weight, not heavy but not ultralight either.
Things I don't like:
Zipper on vestibule is too close to velcrow fly attachment and gets a little stuck sometimes.
The middle pole (not the backbone) hovers above the backbone and creates a half inch gap between the two poles, almost like the middle pole is too big (or maybe its just my setup), I wrapped a piece of velcrow around both pieces, pulling them together, works good and makes it more solid.
Rear vestibule, kinda usless.
