|Review:||Basically a long, narrow wedge, like an axe head standing blade-edge up. The body is all mesh, so it's very nice in warm weather.|
Roomy enough for me (5'11") and my pack, with boots, stove, water bottle in the "vestibule". I can sit up, but my head rubs the walls (they get close at the ridge). Very well made with nice details. Seal the tie-downs on the fly, as the instructions advise, and it will stand up to any storm.
The big "con" for me is the sloping door of the fly. It is difficult to open it without getting the night's condensation raining into the tent.
The "chemical" smell of the fly fades eventually.
As the other review mentioned, there's no pole bag, but there's only one long, shock-corded pole. I just put a rubber band around it and stick it in my pack.
