The Ionosphere by Snugpak is an extremely small and compact 1 person tent. The Ionosphere has a very low profile and is great for those looking for a 1 person tent to keep out of the elements. Just like The Bunker, the Scorpion 3 and Scorpion 2, the Ionosphere also has a 5000mm PU Coated Fly. The Ionosphere has a single entry point, No-See-Um-Mesh and all seams are seam taped. A very impressive small compact tent by anyone's standard.

Update 2014: This tent continues to function at its best. Since the last review, we have been in the woods for weeks on end. We have deployed to the Joint Readiness Training Center twice and the National Training Center once. We (10th Mountain Division) spent two weeks in the woods for MOUNTAIN PEAK. We (4-31 Infantry) deployed to West Point to train cadets and spent three months in the hills against the Hudson River. This tent was with me every day of it. This tent has made life better for this grunt. I was a Platoon Sergeant throughout these deployments. I have authorized its use within my platoon. The only stipulation is that my boys are out of it when pulling security.
For you Airborne Pathfinder, and Jumpmaster dudes, I've jumped it twice. Both times I packed it in my ruck vertically. Obviously not for Combat.
Set up was easy and the Aluminmum stakes were pretty sturdy standing up to me using either a rock or a piece of wood to hammer in the stakes with, they weren't those cheap "wire" stakes but nicely formed stakes with cut ins to secure the ties and rope with. Well thought out.
The Unit consists of an inner tent made of Mosquito type netting with two alumium hoop type bars that pass through sewn in sleeves which are nicely reinforced for this purpose. I found that securing the bottom part first with the alumium stakes and then stretching out the front part and then staking was the best method for setting it up without any sagging in the middle. The floor was pretty strong appearing and bathtub shaped in case of rain. The ground I set up on was still wet from three days of previous rain storms but the tent never leaked one drop of water through the floor. I always use a "footprint" especially when camping anywhere around pine needles with are famous for puncturing tent floors as well as adding a sticky resin to the material. Entry was made through a double zippered door in the left front section of the tent. One Zipper handles the Mosquito netting and the other the waterproof door. If staked out properly all the rain water will flow off to the sides of the tent giving about a six inch clearance which prevents the water from pooling under the tent and adding the "Footprint" helps as well.
If your a tiny person, you can crawl headfirst into the unit and turn around. I am 5'10" and had to back into the unit. My lady friend is 5'2" and she had no problems crawling in headfirst. After you do it a couple of times it gets easier and you train yourself in what you need to do..If you have two small children to house, the tent is roomy enough for two say ten year olds, or one Adult and one small female etc. etc.
I found it very roomy inside with room for extra clothes, boots, water bottle and assorted other gear you don't want to leave outside. I just wish it had a sewn in loop to hand a flashlight on but I always carry a couple of tiny clothespins for keeping freeze dried meals sealed so I used one of spare ones and hung my headlamp from it..Anything with a Food smell or had been in contact with food, should not be brought into the tent, that is just inviting critters to come visit you. We hang all our food about 10 feet off the ground and away from the immediate camping area. Even with the Unit completely closed up I did not feel at all claustophobic (sp?) as I did in the Bivy Tents..
What I was also very happy with, and Backpackers know this,,is the ease with which it was taken down and actully fit into the Storage Bag without giving me a big fight or having to refold it a number of times..The Storage Bag also has a couple of straps on it for tighting and compression as well as attaching it to the bottom of your backpack. It is a small package and one could place it lengthwise into a large sizee Pack instead of the traditional way of strapping it to the bottom of your pack...
I currently own nine tents, from a monster 12x15 Cabin to the One, Two and Four man Backpacking tents to the bivy's and I like this one now the best now for Backpacking.
Having used a half dozen other one man tents and bivys in the last decade, I will say this is the best yet.
