Got it, love it for long distance trips. Ultralight with lots of gear room. It takes up some space, to stake out. Being single wall, it has condensation under certain conditions. It is not freestanding, but very stable in high winds and very dry even in the northwest rain.

Used it for 1,000 mi. on the AT this fall 2010. Excellent weight/space ratio. I could get all of my gear inside with rooom to spare. Set up is kind of a pain, but it takes down and in the bag in 2 min. Use a trekking pole for best setup. Did not leak at all during heavy and persistent rain. Some misting after two days being wet. (cover your stuff with a plastic garbage bag. Pretty excellent.

A.} To get the best answer for your question, I went to two BACKPACKER staffers who can relate: Jon Dorn and Ben Fullerton, both 66. Here are a few of their three-season picks.
