I received mine last week and have only set it up in the backyard so these are just initial impressions:
-I'm amazed at the packed size, which is about the same as my 1 person TT Moment DW;
-the poles (DAC) and stakes (DAC) are very high quality feel very sturdy. The guylines are black? I would have chosen a brighter color, but they do have a reflective tracer so should stand out at night;
-the fabric feels very thin (floor, canopy nylon, and rain fly) and I'm a bit concerned about the durability of the floor on Sierra granite. Time will tell;
-setup is very straight forward and quick to perform. It's a bit difficult to line up the seems of the rain fly in the proper positions. There are hook and loop attachments on the inner of the fly that must be used in order to line everything up;
-it's big! I'm used to much smaller tents and this feels huge to me. I plan to use the tent for our family backpacking trips (me, my wife, and toddler son)
-the single front entry seems large enough for easy ingress/egress and there is a slight overhang that should eliminate rain/condensation on the fly from entering the tent;
-the small pop-up vent is cool, but I'd like to see another towards the rear of the tent;
-with some creativity, it appears that the lower rear of the tent can be cinched up to facilite air flow; and
-I'm happy to report that after the standard hose test, everything remained dry inside. Also, I'm not sure why, but the fabric beads water like glass and dried very quickly - quick than my silnylon tents.
Our family has a trip planned for mid-June, which will be this tent's first trip. Although, I'm doing a solo overnight trip at the end of the week and may just have to indulge myself and bring this palace along. We'll see.
