A 3 person tent that actually has room for 3 people!!! This tent is AWESOME. Less than 6lbs, sets up easy and keeps you dry in severe rain. Love the extensive use of mesh, terrific star gazing from your sleeping bag on a clear night. It is no longer available from Big Agnes but you might find it on a clearance site like I did, I got the tent & footprint for $260. It may have been over-priced at $600 but is a fantastic value on sale
