QUOTED from previously written PM
alternately I can share some pics, and could possibly take some specific close-ups or explain any details. I definitely have some critique of it, though it is my first 4 season tent so I do not have a good baseline. it hunkers in the wind great, it is narrower a bit than the specs, if i recall. if you're a 6 footer+, a winter bag will make contact with the walls. The velcro that goes around the poles inside the tent to secure them and keep them in place moreso is an honest pain in the ass as getting it tight around the poles is impossibly to do with gloves on, thus your hand is touching the metal and can get cold really quick (maybe something to secure once you're inside in your bag. The tent has 3 bomber sewed 'triangle pouches' on both sides and the back--they have a velcro closure in which to keep the guylines, i find this very nice for keeping the guys on the tent without them all over the place if you're not using them/when packing--that said if staked out too tightly on the horizontal (as opposed to more downward, immediately next to the tent, it can make the area between the triangle guy attachment and the top of the tent less vertical, which collects snow easier. in addition to those 3 points, you have 4 corners and two spots on each side for stakes, and then on each verticie (vertex?) where the poles are, there are guy loops to stake out. thus the potential for... a total of 7 guy lines if needed? and I think with a long guy-line setup you could make some sort of triangular tensioning system going using 2 pole-guy points and the middle triangle piece. though i do not know where to find the 'ultimate guy-out' instructions..seems more like a from the hip/experience type learning as far as utilizing all guy points.
it should have a window, or a vent or something--though that is not to say due to condensation--the front door/screen can be left cracked in a multitude of ways in more relaxed conditions as well. it would just be nice, say for firing a stove up, or looking out of the tent, to have the opening. the smaller mountainbivy one has a rear 'port' for dumping urine out.. i guess to keep the weight down they did not bring that to this version. a buddy who has a mnt hardware EV2 was extremely skeptical of single wall no vents up at camp muir, but he felt the iced condensation was equal or less than his EV2 with full vents open. food for thought.
The eVent material is good, but i think it may be a little more fragile than other materials--if it gets stretched (like over something somewhat pointy/cornered in your pack or if you try to roll it too tightly) you can see the fabric has distorted a little bit. (sort of like if you push your finger into a cotton shirt to make a point, it gives a localized stretch. it does to a perceptible, but much lesser degree.
pluses--two poles and the tent, thats all, right at 4lbs--it can sleep two, though i probably wouldn't look for a total stranger to be in there with me.
the stakes that come with it are pathetic, and the guylines and zipper-pull string mimics the kelty triptease stuff in that it looks like it has grey reflective fibers in the yellow cord, but alas, it has no reflectivity, wtf? for the cost i find those details lousy. the zipper pulls though have glow-in-the-dark plastic which impressively remains glowing 6, 7, 10 hours later it seems..
in addition it has a hell of a lot of little reflective things on it, from the guy loops to the triangle parts, to if you replace their guy-lines with reflective type--which can be nice in the dark/dark fog.
looking out on what is available on the same level there is the firstlight and the i-tent i think.. the itent being a bit more robust with waterproof fabric vs that new green stuff that is water-resistant.
Okay, well I think i probably criticized it more than i praised it, but I'm just trying to say the pain points as I see/saw them. I do like the tent and never get the impression that it will fail me, it feels bomber when guyed out and inside. the bright red color is also nice, imho--you can see your tent from far away which i think is a plus.
whew, hope that helps!
