-Easy, simple set-up. Seriously, even in the dark it takes no more than 5 minutes.
-Nice mesh pockets and gear hammock at top of the tent that's great for a headlamp or flashlight.
-Large full coverage rain fly
-Very comfortable size for 2 people. 3 might be a bit of a squeeze.
The only kind of negative is that its hard to reach the bottom zipper of the rain fly (because the coverage is so great). Alps thoughtfully added 2 zippers though so it isn't too bad. I've only used this tent 3 times so far, but I'll update this review with anything else I notice.
To summarize: BUY THIS TENT. YOU WONT REGRET IT!
At 6'2", I wanted a tent that would have enough room for my long sleeping bag (that measures 89 inches laid on the ground), and large sleeping pad without having my bag sitting against the tent walls. This tent fits the bill.
I went with the Outfitter version, as I wanted the heavier floor. The bonus was getting the larger zippers as well. Zippers work very well. The reach for the zipper on the bottom of the fly is a stretch, but the trade off is having the large vestibules.
I'll update this in the future if I have issues, but to this point, it has worked well.
Edit : 8/25/2018 - After taking it camping for three weeks here are my thoughts. The rainfly is a condensation magnet no matter how well you ventilate it and the clips that are supposed to hold two poles together tend to not work well as there is nothing to keep the second pole from popping out of place - I would suggest a carabeener style clip if the company ever updates the tent. The mesh is already showing some small holes caused by the clips when rolled up and put away as they press into the mesh panels, and some stitching is coming undone on those panels where they meet the tent fabric as well. The fly is abit of a hassle to put on when you are by your self as it is large and heavy. All that being said it survived the Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. I will use it till it falls apart on me, at that time it will be replaced with a much better tent that I can look at in person.
Biggest improvement is the zippers, I am paranoid of zippers failing because that's men a big problem with tents for me, but these are suitably beefy zippers, and the floor is good, but your gonna want the footprint, trust me on that.
I watched a youtube video of the setup and it looked very easy with the two people that were doing the demonstration. It is slightly more tough to do alone the first time but now that I figured out the technique its not bad to do it alone. Im not sure its a realistic 3 person tent unless you can fit those 3 on a queen sized mattress comfortably. I put a queen air mattress in it and it just fits width wise, perfect for two people in my opinion. No problems in the rain, I set it up in the backyard and we had some severe rain and it stayed bone dry and that was before any waterproofing treatment! Good ventilation with the rain fly on and I usually just leave it on all the time.
The durability is getting tested by my 95lb nearly blind puppy. He tends to go on these "crazy runs" and has plowed into the side of the tent and ran over the vestibules many times and although the vestibule stakes have bent there's no damage to the tent. I guess that is the one good thing about the somewhat crappy stakes it comes with is that they will fail before the fabric tears!
