For Harry, one of our intrepid tent testers, this is the best two person tent he has ever ever used. He got one for his 18th birthday and have used for weeks on end every year since. He thrashed this tent and it finally got moved on to light duty last summer, so had ten full years of hard hard use in all weather from the highlands of Scotland to Kazakstan and back to Kent.
At just 1.54 Kg it is super light. There are certainly slightly lighter tents available but none that have the habitability, space and build quality that MSR manage to pack into such a small four season (outside deep snow) package.
The dual doors mean that you can both have your own personal vestibule come storage space and don't have to climb over each other in the middle of the night.
The single pole construction is such that you don't need to peg out the inner body, which makes it perfect for pitching on the beach or where pegs are challenging.
MSR's attention to quality is clear from the detailing and the manufacturing standards of the hardware, it is details like this that mean these tents have years of life in them.
