Review by Shifu on Jul. 12, 2011
Light, roomy, well designed. It's technically a smaller footprint than the REI Half Dome 2, but the well-tensioned vertical walls make it feel bigger.

Super easy to put up and it ventilates well in my experience, although I haven't pushed it too hard in that regard.
There's a seam that runs along the floor of the tent. It's lap-welded, so I'm not too worried, but there are better places for seams.
REI Half Dome 2, but beware the rainfly design on the HD2 if you plan on camping in rainy areas.

Versatile (sometimes we do the fast pack and sometimes we bring this snow camping), quick and easy setup, has invisible bug netting, no condensation problems, freestanding, durable, great in wind (if you guy it out properly), rain and not-too-deep snow, long (my boyfriend is 6'2"), steep sides make it so that you can both sit up and so that the wall isn't in your face when you are laying down.
On the heavy side for me for most hikes. This is our "bad weather/bad bugs" tent.

Review by marks on Oct. 31, 2007
Simplicity at it's best. One pole, plenty high for me to sit up in (i'm 5' 8"). Light weight. Holds up well (though I have been using the ground tarp).
The only complaint I have is that I haven't found a practical way to keep the rain fly open while loading / unloading the tent (sure they make those roll up, loop it in setups but i'm lazy).
There are quite a few competitors to this model. All are fairly similar.

Review by Niles on Dec. 05, 2011
I am a fan of the spider pole (one pole) design. This tent has certainly been put through its paces when I have brought it out. Everything from being sand blasted in the southern Utah desert with 60-70 mph winds to early season snow in the high Uinta mountains. The tent is light and a good tent for 2 people who want to go fairly light. The footprint is a must with this tent. The design is incredibly sturdy in highwinds and I have never had the tent colapse on me. Definately one of my favorites. I also like the complete mesh build of the tent. The durability is also amazing for such a lightweight tent.
As goes with the sand blasting that the tent received in southern Utah, the tent did let an alarming ammount of fine particle whether it be blowing snow or sand through. Upon waking up in the morning and having a layer of sand over everying is not the most pleasant thing to have happen during the night. But thats when you bring along an expedition style tent. This is a lightweight backpacking tent so I cannot complain much. Also the connecter between the short pole on top was not my most favorite and I ended up breaking it once. This problem has since been solved with their new connecter piece

Review by rrtex1 on Mar. 01, 2011
Very roomy for a two person tent, feels larger than it is. Easy to set up, versatile with optional fly only setup. Roomy vestibule. Have not used in a storm yet but based on way fly looks I can not imagine it letting water in tent. Have used it in 20+mph winds and it does great. Two doors make it so much easier to get in and out of.
Wonder if it could be any lighter? At 4 pounds not so bad for what it is.

Review by indynicolas on Jan. 27, 2008
Incredibly light weight and easy to set up. The bright colors are nice in the morning. No condensation in the tent, though quite a bit on the inside of the fly, but all of it tends to run down the fly instead of dripping into the tent. Basically, I love this tent.
A bit snug for two people, and very little internal storage, also a bit pricey compared to it's (few) competitors, but weighed against the weight and ventilation these are negligible.

Review by quinlama on Feb. 11, 2008
Light, 2 doors, mesh unenclosed (great for star watching before falling asleep), very easy and quick to assemble.
It's not fire proof!

Review by merlesray on Jun. 20, 2008
No condensation on the inside, even in the smokies next to a river. Roomy, holds two medium adults and a 50 lb mutt. A bright yellow and orange scheme lets any hunters know not to shoot.
Can be drafty.

Review by rondo.bauer on Feb. 02, 2008
I love this tent. Nothing shy of a tarp tent is easier to set up or more adaptable to your needs.
Expensive but worth every penny.
Lots of competitors but none better.

Awesome 2 person, 3 season tent. Very lightweight and easy to pitch in most situations. Can use fly and pole system for ultra light packing.

Review by Spurvs on Aug. 03, 2008
-2 large doors on both sideswith 2 vestibules= not having to crawl over you tent mate.
-Very Breathable
Hich celing...good for tall people but bad for keeping the heat.

Super Light! Love the double vestibule.
Really only enough space for me, my dog, and my gear. If you have a companion other than your dog, they need their own tent!

Review by Donnie Jones on Mar. 15, 2011
My Hubba Hubba has me spoiled! I tried a high quality one person and just couldn't tolerate the lack of space. This tent is high quality, simple, efficent and worth every penny.
Have to be a bit careful to not bend the overhead pole when connecting the fly. Seems almost too tight and is a struggle to unhook with cold fingers
You get what you pay for and this is another quality product from MSR.

Nice to have the rain fly off on warm nights. Like sleeping under the star without the bugs.
