After spending a few weeks in this tent I feel like I can write a comprehensive review.
-All concerns about wind have been calmed. The tent has seen very strong winds (blowing the pot over, lose your hat wind). The option to "lock down" the vestibules and pitch close to the ground keeps the wind out great, and no components have torn or failed.
-Being my first sil shelter, the misting was concerning at first. In the end, it really is no more a problem than mild condensation in a dome tent. A little moisture on the foot of your bag, oh well. I've not had the tent in an all out exposed ridge style cascade storm (nor do I intend too). Big fan of the hike high camp low deal.
-This thing is huge inside. Two doors, two vestibules, and vertical walls. We took it car camping because its nicer than our 2 walled dome, and condensation never touches the bags because of the distance of the sil from the netting. It's very cush :)
-I'm 6'5", and it is plenty long. No more brushing my head and feet against the walls, hurray!
-I have a weight of 44oz with aluminium stakes and polycro footprint. I'm very happy with the weight, I move a bunch in my sleep and will gladly carry the difference in weight for some freedom of movement.
-The pitch really isn't difficult after the first time or two, and its only a couple of minutes for a nice taut setup. The guys in the middle of the "head" and "foot" ends help tremendously in foul weather.
The wife and I are super happy with this tent. It's less than half the weight of our last backpacking dome tent and it is far more functional.
