I've had multiple tents over the years and this quickly became my favorite - to the extent that I'm considering selling my other five tents. Dual vestibules makes this tent far roomier than the 19 sq ft of floor space would indicate. Oversize pad (76 x 26 x 3.5) fits with plenty of space left over to move. Gear goes under one vestibule and you use the other as your door.

Mine just arrived 2 days ago and so far had one very wet 'test' night so see how it fared in driving rain and high winds. As expected it leaked but I knew it would and have now sealed it and on 2nd night no leaks. Looking forward to first wild camp. Also added 2 guys to centre pole and spectra cord throughout to zip pulls plus hanging line. Looks like the perfect balance between my Akto and Soulo with flexibility to take whatever poles dependant on season

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.
