I usually don't give reviews of my stuff, but for this tent I have to!
Looking for a light weight one person tent, big enough to sit in and have space for my 60l pack and gear, I thought I never find one for my money.
And I did! Absolut stunned by the great built quality. Set up within 5 min. Used it in gale winds with few pegs only. Pegs did not move and tent withstood battering wind without any problems.
Used in snow and heavy rain and again, tent performed great. Condensation is no problem at any weather. Love it!

This tent is worth every penny! I bought this tent for a motorcycle trip and wanted a tent that would be light and small when packed, and easy to set up. It did all that very well. I got it set up in under 5 minutes, I didn't even pre-run the set up.

I seam sealed this tent before I took it out on the trail. There was a torrential downpour all night long and I was inside, perfectly dry. No water inside the tent at all. It is a little heavy for a single person tent, but a good value for money. The construction seems very high quality. The ventilation was good. The gear vestibule is a little small and my 49L pack does not fit in there very well. Water did splash into the vestibule area soaking all my gear and boots, next time I will take that stuff into the tent to keep it dry. Pitching the tent is really fast and easy and that does matter when its raining. I would recommend this tent.

Great tent for the money! Have used it in all kinds of weather and terrain- ranging from local over nighters to 4-5 day stents on the Appalachian trail. The light year is well-made and has maintained its water-proofing much better than other tents I have owned. The poles are made of high quality aluminum ensuring durability and also saving weight. My only complaint is that it is not a free-standing tent, but keep in mind that if it were, the poles would have to be bigger and would add to the overall weight...

So far so good. Easy to put up, fairly light and good space to sit up. I have taken it on two trips so far and it has worked very well. You need to be able to stake it down or the lower (smaller) support will collapse. I wanted a one man tent that was well made, easy to put up and not very expensive- it met all those criteria. Not top of the line but a good value for the money.
