I have the 2005 version of this tent. I am extremely happy with this tent. It is sometimes listed as ultralight and I bought it as the lightest double wall tub-bottom tent that I could find at the time. It weighs in at 78.1 ounces by my scales with everything needed for a full set up. I have used this several in full rain, and stayed perfectly dry. The only downside is lack of a vent near the top that could help with condensation, but the inside dimensions are big enough that one night of condensation is not enough to drip down or touch the sleeping bag. The floor is sturdy enough to not need a ground cloth. I have set it up rainfly-only once, but usually carry the entire system.

Price comparison from GearBuyer: The North Face Tadpole 23 priced at: $199.97 - $219.00
