I'm extremely interested in this tent but I'm wondering how well a tent without any mesh performs as far as ventilation/condensation goes. I look at the tent and think about using it in the White Mountains in the summer and it just looks, well, HOT. Anyone have experience in mesh-less tents?

It is a breathable fabric. You can blow air through it.

It is highly breathable, but not as much as mesh. I would love that for shoulder season or in sandy/windy places to keep out dirt and spindrift. I would rather see some upper mesh though in wetter humid areas.

It looks like a Fly Creek with full walls. It doesn't look like it has any high venting except the door which will let rain fall on the inner.
