Summary:
Very nice color and style. Alot of room for 2 or 3 and 2 similar vestibule to put your gear. Very easy to pitch and fast too.

Handle wind very well because of the rounded design.

Have 2 door which can be left open at the top for ventilation even in pouring rain.

There seem to be a little flat spot on top of the tent ( the triangle on top ) that would collect a bit of water before the water slide down, but water won't get throught the fabric.

All in all, this is one of the best 3 season/backpacking tent for 2 or 3 person.

Summary:
I've only used this tent a couple of times, and haven't had it in the rain yet. I was initially concerned about the two pole structure (a third pole is added only to support the fly), but it seems quite solid.

It packs down smaller than some north face tents I've owned, and it comes with all of TNF standard featues that you come to expect (and take for granted). Lots of pockets and glow in the dark zipper pulls, etc.

Both vestibules are the same size, and they seem smaller than some other models. Plenty of space for two people and their gear, though.

All in all, a tent which I'm very pleased with. Light, spacious and high quality.



Customer Service:
Excellent -

Had a problem with a Cumulus tent last year. Rain came through one of the floor seams (they told me it may be a design flaw). Anyway, they immediately issued a store credit (the Cumulus is no longer offered by TNF)
