Summary:
The Hardshell has proven to have an excellant space to wieght ratio, is well ventalated, packs up small, and will hold up well in all but the worst of conditions. This tent is as capable for 4-season use as any I've tried

Summary:
I've been extrordinarily pleased with this tent. not only is it only five pounds, but it is plenty big enough for two if you leave the packs out. Great in cold weather, and watertight. With a decent sleeping bag and tying out the tent and fly, this is a full four-season tent. and good ventilation in the summer too (though if you are only going to use it in warmer climates, i'd go with the Nutshell instead).

Summary:
Bought this tent several months ago. Easy to set-up, good ventilation and very sturdy. The floor is reinforced to be very waterproof. A bit tight for two people plus gear but I appreciate the the light weight esp. when carrying it during a long distance backpacking trip. The burrito style stuff sack is godsend.
