5.0 out of 5 stars Great tent for the light weight adventurer!
By DC-Outdoors on January 15, 2018
I own several one man tents and they all function great as does the ionosphere, it does have a slight learning curve over my other tents as far as the entrance goes, I am 6’ 250 lbs. and have to go in feet first, also I have to be outside of the tent to get dressed, undressed, etc. but that is what I expected on this much lighter and smaller tent that is definitely worth it at its price point! I just got back from a three day two night in January where we experienced a low of 8 degrees Fahrenheit and a brisk wind all through one night and it did great!

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT TENT!
By T. Mcintyre on December 19, 2016
I have used this both motorbike camping/traveling as well as hunting, and it is a dang good tent. I should have bought one a long time ago. Well worth the money and easy to set up. I am 6'1" and 200 pounds and I had no siiues as far as being too small. A fair amount of room up front to bring in your boots, socks, a small light, etc.

Having used a half dozen other one man tents and bivys in the last decade, I will say this is the best yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for cold weather too.
By T Pick on November 20, 2016
I used this tent on a 32 degree night and it seemed to hold in heat well. It has an open design to let air flow under the rain fly. You can stake the fly closer to the main tent then push leaves around the bottom to close up the air space in cold weather. I used a snugpak softie elite 3 bag and snugpak fleece liner and was super comfy. I'm 6' tall and 175 pounds. I had enough space to squeeze in some of my gear and shoes around me so they were dry the next morning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ionosphere Vs Stratosphere
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 14, 2014
I've had the opportunity to setup both Snugpak bivvie tents: The Ionosphere and the Stratosphere.

The advantages of the stratosphere are that it is lighter, ultra quick to setup, nearly free standing,
has a lower profile, less water gets in during setup and it is warmer in the winter.

As far the Ionosphere, it is more roomy, breathes far better, has a back poll to keep the tent further above your legs,
better defined doorway and the top can be removed or peeled back when the weather allows.

I've seen posts on the internet asking if the extra weight of the Ionosphere is worth it for backpacking. The answer is YES. I've never considered myself to be a claustrophobic person, but the Stratosphere felt like a coffin. I was uncomfortable to the point that I didn't want to zip it up. It is almost like a larger second sleeping bag. But the worst part is not the room, but breathing. I found it difficult to get comfortable enough to sleep. It was simply too enclosed and too hot.

By comparison, the Ionosphere is more like a real tent. I'm 6-3 and wide boned, but the length is enough for me and I can partially sit up to change. This tent doesn't feel at all claustrophobic, apart from being roomier the two Layer construction allows you to partially see around the perimeter which further alleviates any couped up feeling and allows the air to cycle. As far as warmth, I won't comment since I'm the last person to feel cold. The two layer construction can allow some drafts in, but I consider this to be a positive since a small space needs to ventilated.

In conclusion, I wouldn't recommend the stratosphere except for special use cases. On the surface it might seem like it has a lot of advantages, but they are mostly disadvantages when it comes to comfort and the overall feel of the space. For a fairly marginal weight increase, you can get a far more comfortable tent in the Ionosphere with a minimal increase in price.

UPDATE: I just came back from a 3 week backpacking and cycling tour of the Shetlands. Observations:

This tent is structurally strong. I was camped out when the full force of the remnants of hurricane Gonzalo hit with gusts of 60 to 70 mph. The tent took the full force of the wind [Back facing into the wind] with no problems at all. I didn't get wet at all and the drafts were not bad since the back of the tent contains the best wind protection.

A few nights later I was camped out when a similar gale hit but the tent got caught side-on with only a thigh high burm for protection. It pushed the tent nearly flat on top of me, but nothing broke or tore. The pegs all remained firmly staked due to the suspension system that is used. However it was quite breezy even though I did have some side protection from the burm.

I was happy, even grateful for the performance on this tent under extreme wind and rain conditions. But based on my experience, I'm now thinking that the Stratosphere may be a better option for extreme weather especially freezing cold gale force winds. However, I stand by the assertion that the Ionosphere is far more comfortable. I'd definitely take it to the Shetlands in November again.

PROBLEM: I'm a bit disappointed in the inner mesh. It has a lot of 'runs' near the opening where I've been getting in and out and changing. They look like runs in a lady's stocking. At least one looks like it will probably turn into a hole. It hadn't dawned on me that he mesh would be so delicate. I wish they had put a warning label there because by the time I had noticed the issue there were at least half a dozen runs...

ADVICE: Avoid rubbing your head on the inner mesh while getting in and out and changing

It is definitely worthy of a deduction on material grounds though I think the 'runs' can avoided if the user is aware of the issue and takes due care. But I'm ever so grateful for the performance of this tent in extreme wind and rain conditions so I'll stick with the 5 star review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Snug but strong and easy to carry and small to pack
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 26, 2018
Light to carry, well made and strong. Not being able to sit up in it is a disadvantage but plenty of room in the bottom for your kit and held up well to winds and heavy rain in the Brecons. Very easy to erect with no issues. If you want small and light then you can't go wrong with this tent.
