The Mystique is a two pole, non-freestanding tent and is the most lightweight model in our line. But just because it is lightweight does not mean that we've cut any corners or left out any ideal features. The Mystique comes equipped with #8 zippers, factory sealed fly and floor seams, and 2 mesh doors for great ventilation and easy entry and exit. The weatherproof fly provides a vestibule over each door and has a vent that you can keep open or closed. So if weight is an issue and quality is a must, there's no better choice than the Mystique.

Excellent factory seam seals
Excellent stitching on the tent and fly assembly...not so much the optional floor
HD Aluminum poles 8.5mm with easy (proprietary?) insert design with the tent grommets
Accurate description as a 2-person. Shoulder room to spare, extra room at the feet lengthwise but width at the feet is tight for 2. Again, overall though a 2 man easily.
The zippers are outstanding. Like the title...a fundamental that competitors cheap out on. You'd be hard pressed to jamb these up.
With the tent body staked the assembly is as easy as it gets. A hiker could do it in the dark and blindfolded. Very friendly design.
The no see-um mesh appears very durable.
The fly does not align with the pole set at all. Despite adjustments it failed miserably. The length left portions of the netting exposed to rain, the seam alignment was terrible, even when taut the fly sagged and contacted the mesh repeatedly-an invitation for not just condensation but pouring water.
The tent solid ceiling is a poor idea versus using netting. It sags terribly and there is no way with the tents design to correct this. 2-person tents are naturally tight and this really contributes to the claustrophobic feel. Using a tape measure I found 2-1/2" of flex without forcing the material.
Similar to above, the wall panel at the head sags badly as well. Since it's the third leg between the forward pole (ceiling) and the staked out floor (which is taut) you have no adjustment. Did I mention claustrophobia?
The mesh storage pockets look good. Problem is their short length and the tall height which lets them rub the floor. Consider making them near the length of the wall panel they're on but reducing the depth 25%??? Anything that rubs the panel or floor is asking for condensation.
The optional floor is shameful (and a bit insulting to be honest). It's no secret the hiker needs one so why the extra $20? Making it worse, although the floor aligns with the tent "tub" properly I set it up only to hear a tearing noise the first time I crawled in. Shame on me I thought...stretched it to tight only to remember the floor has no adjustable tethers, they are stretch, set it and forget it. Since they marry with the tent floor and share the stake points you have no choice and no flexibility.
The mesh role up doors on the tent sides need attention. The zipper does not curl around at the base or at its top point. Think basic geometry, unzipped and rolled up you stretch the diagonal so the floor and top sections of the door sag while the "cross" is really tensioned to the point of worry.
The stakes for a backpack tent are much too heavy. Odd since the minimalist aluminum poles are outstanding.
A solid design but it needs to come off the CAD drawings and benefit from some real world use. PLEASE, consider I'm excited by the fundamentals ALPS has invested in the Mystique line. Rock solid materials, durable zippers, excellent poles, much better than average materials coatings, etc. Take some time and reach out to those living with the product repeatedly thru the year. I wish ALPS huge success if this is an example of their company philosophy.
Btw, no freebies, no discounts and no input from me to ALPS. My money... Next up is their entry level 4-Season model.
Cons: On our 2nd night, we did get stuck in a huge thunderstorm. Im sure if we were in grass or a different area we would of been fine but since it was just dirt, there was a lot of water around us outside the tent and since the tarp kind hangs a little above the ground, rain kind of splashed inside through the mesh. I feel walls should be a little higher to accommodate that. I also had a problem with one of the zippers getting stuck but finally got it fixed but after I realized water was getting in from it. There was a little moisture as well coming in around the seams but not enough to really create puddles. Granted we really got dumped on with some rain all night so it was quite a test for it. We had to bring our packs inside the fly wings to keep all our stuff from getting wet. I also wish the tent came in 2 bags, 1 for the tarp and poles and other for the tent itself so it would be easier to split weight between 2 people. Bag it comes in is kind of loose and i prefer tighter fitting sacks so it hangs on the back of my pack better.
All in all Im pretty happy. Yes there's tons of tents out there that are lighter but for a 2 person tent, i was pretty happy. If it was just me, id just do my hammock with a tarp shelter but when i bring friends or the girlfriend, ill be bringing this tent for sure.
