I bought this tent in an attempt to really lighten my gear as much as possible. As far as weight goes, I dont think there is another tent on the market that offers what this tent does for its sub 2 lbs. weight. I have always used a 2 person tent for camping/hiking just so I can have a lot of stuff within reach at night. This tent leaves enough room at the head of the tent to have a few things with you inside, but its by no means spacious. My only knocks on the tent were the steaks are pretty weak, the vestibule area is exposed to the ground (i wish the footprint covered the vestibule area) and its really awkward getting in and out with the rain fly on. I felt like I had to plank to get in and out without messing up the door/rain fly area, so I think that could be improved. My tent also came with a small hole in the mesh, but customer service exchanged it promptly. The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the entry/exit issue I had (which really wasnt a huge problem....just awkward).
I would recommend this product.

I really do love his tent. I bought it for use during my thru hike in the Arizona Trail next March, and I have been using it every trip since I bought it. This tent is simple, easy to put up and has just enough room to get the important thing inside without leaving me cramped. The only reason I gave it a 4 in quality is because I noticed that there are some minor defects in the mesh. It's nothing serious, no bugs are getting in but they are there. I gave it a 5 in function because it definitely works WELL, but the foot print that I purchased DOES need a little reworking. It doesn't fit this tent well
I would recommend this product.

Purchased the SuperMega UL 1 to replace my heavier bivy sack. More room is nicer for longer trips. I used the tent on an Arctic Alaska packraft trip, so lightweight was critical. The weather was good, so it wasn't a true test of strength; however, one issue was clear, the rain fly doesn't go close enough to the ground and the sides are too far open. The worst weather was ~20mph wind and rain. The wind would blow the rain into the tent under the sides of the tent. Also, the flap over the entry zipper would blow open in the wind, so rain would trickle through the zipper. If the wind blows sideways on the tent, then the center bends over dramatically; however, I don't think it was every near breaking. The tent feels like tissue paper, so I was worried when it got windy, which led to sleepless nights.
Summary: good tent for mellow weather without much wind.
I would recommend this product.
