Rating: 4 / 5

Innovative single wall, double wall design with highly breathable eVENT panels. Weight was 4lbs even and 36 sq. ft. Though bigger than most 2 person shelters, a little tight especially at the foot end of the tent. Vestible is small for storage and for cooking.

The attached rollup fly is awesome for views and fast setup when rain is on the way.

Used the tent in dry 85F weather in the GC, 70F humid weather in the Smokies, 38F high humidity and in 13F with 18 inches of fresh snow fall. The eVENT panels had no condensation ain all situations though the silnylon did have condensation.

The mesh is delicately tough. Gets snags easily.
Setup is a little work with the crossover sleeved pole, especially in colder weather.

The 4 arch setup is strong under snow loads and the silnylon sheds snow well. The eVENT panels would sag under the weight.

Overall a great concept and pretty good execution.

I'd give it a 4.3 actual score.
