Summary:
An outstanding 2 person tent (3 people are shoulder to shoulder) & very easy to set up the first time. We needed space for 3, with gear, so we switch to the Kelty Vortex 4 from Campmore for $200.

Summary:
I recently bought this tent at popular outdoor for 40% off. What most attracted me to this tent was it light weight for such a large tent three people could easily sleep in it and the huge vestuble would hold all thier gear. I also dig the color and design as well as the guyline loops. I have taken this tent out twice and it has performed wonderfully. I have not been able to find the footprint so I used a tarp and when it raind a puddle of water formed between the tent and tarp I never knew untill I took down the tent, In New mexico there is not much need for a four season or expidition tent. this tent and a good slepping bag is more than enough to winter camp in this state. I would have had no problem paying to the 269.00 regular price I just lucked out. Also I first contemplated buying the nebula but beside the zipper panels theres not a big difference for what I would use it for the nebula and stratos tents do have a thicker waterproof coating on the floor but the footprint takes care of that.
overall I love this tent and at 173.00 anyone would.
