I have takin the Optic snow camping twice in the last month or so and I really love it. While its a little heavy...I will be backpacking it this weekend. Strangely, the size of the doors make a huge difference. They are huge and that makes things so much easier. Over all it is a fantastic tent and I would strongly recommend you consider it.
I do have three complaints...they are small but they are:
1) There doesn't seem to be any ventilation in the rain fly which which means you get condensation when its cold out.
2) It comes with wire stakes and only a minimal guy line for the tie downs.
3) The foot print is sold separately.
The first point is a design decision that has merits I guess (no place for wind or rain to get through the fly) but seems like it could have been handled differently. Either way it is what it is and doesn't really detract from the use so far.
The second two seem to be the same across many manufacturers and are more of an industry pet peeve of mine. I hate to pay good money for a tent and then have to pay another $50 for a footprint, better stakes and more / better guy lines. I expect to do that with a $30 tent from a big box store, but not at this level.
Before this, I had a Kelty Grand Mesa 2 Tent that I absolutely love. I camp about 40 nights a year with Boy Scouts and after 4 years of use I got a rip in the mesh and I decided it was time to try something a little bigger. I will repair the tear and pass that tent down to my daughter.
~~~ Update ~~~
After owning this tent for a year, I can say that I still love it. The side vestibule is huge which is perfect for my pack and that leaves the front opening available to get in and out of the tent. The inside is also spacious and very comfortable. As a test at home, I was even able to dry pitch it. I look forward to trying this aspect in the field.
