I bought this tent in July 2010, and I've used it throroughly in the chilean Andes and Patagonia over the past months.

Under windy conditions (I'm not talking extreme weather), the tent bends in half, and the sides wake you constantly throughout the night with a tapping on your sleeping bag. It's not sturdy at all.

Under rainy conditions it's a bloody mess. Water seeps through the walls and a pool gathers in the bottom.

When it's humid outside, your perspiration condenses on the walls, and you wake in the morning to find a hundred droplets aimed at you. As soon as you move, they all come crashing down on you.

The textile is so fragile it's scary.
The pegs are sharp (they cut your hands when you try to pull them out).

Yes. I sealed the seams.
Yes. I set it up right.
Yes. I let the window open to let air in.
Yes. I have experience. I've been trekking and camping for the past 15 years frequently.

Believe me, the only good thing about this tent is how light it is, but it really is not worth the price you pay. You'd really be better off with a bivy sack.

This is a great tent. It's crazy light (under 3 pounds including poles, stakes AND ground cloth). One person can set it up in a couple of minutes--and from the inside. This is great if you have to put it up in the rain, or while under attack from a hoarde of mosquitos. Does a single walled breathable tent really work? It does! I used it in a 6-hour downpour and not a drop of water got in (you have to thoroughtly seam seal it, which takes a while). And although the fabric is breathable, there will still be condensation in some conditions. In heavy winds it deforms (it's a dome tent after all) but you can guy it out to take care of that. It says it's for 2 people, but it's really a solo+ tent, and for that it's great-- very roomy. The fabric is uber lightweight, but reinforced in the right spots. Still, you need to be careful with it-- like all ultralight gear.

I gave this tent to a friend for Christmas. I have owned one for over 10 years myself and have spent over 250 nights out in it having been a Volunteer Backcountry Ranger in Grand Teton National Park. It does not leak and never has even when gail force winds are driving the rain. It also breaths enough to minimize inside frost on cold nights much better than I expected it would.

I use it for a one-person tent and find it necessary to sleep diagonally in it so I pitch it with that in mind. It is plenty roomy for all my gear. One thing though, since it is ultralight you will need to treat it with care and always, always use a ground cloth with it. There are many complaints on websites about problems with the floor when it is used without a ground cloth. Following these rules, mine is still as good as new.

Another observation about this tent is that you cannot leave the door unzipped if you leave camp with the tent set up unless you know it is not going to rain. In some places I go this is a real drawback since, for example in Grand Teton Park which is home to an overwhelming number of marmots. If the door is not open they will chew a hole in the tent to get in. A vestibule is available for this tent which solves the problem but it is too heavy for me to want to carry it most of the time. In which case, I take the tent down and hang my full pack in a tree if I am going on a day hike away from camp.

All this being said, I love the tent. It is my go-to tent for every time I want to sleep solo. There is no other tent I have seen that is even close.

I love this tent in terms of the weight, robustness of the construction, poles, fabric and overall design. The only drawback is the lack of proper ventilation which causes condensation. I'd like to see extra vents at the very top of the tent, similar to the BD I-Tent. I was considering the I-Tent however the extra weight and price made me go with this one. I plan on using it primarily in winter for backcountry skiing where the weight is a factor. The tent package is very small and does not take much space in the pack (size of Nalgene bottle + the poles). Overall a great shelter for winter and shoulder seasons. I'd definitely recommend this to a friend and probably buy it again if I was deciding again.
