Have used it on about 10 trips this year, including 4 winter trips, no storms, only light snow; 1 trip up to the Continental Divide Trail in the Weminuche Wilderness. Goes up easy, very light weight (a little over 3 lbs). I don’t need all the stakes, just a front and rear to hold it down. Huge front and rear vestible. Lots of inside pockets, and 2 nice upper pockets to tuck open the screen. It’s lightweight due to its all net upper, but so what, with the fly it becomes bullet proof. The poles are a little fragile, so not sure about long term storms or durability on a glacier, but when the fly is up it would take a giant storm to do any damage. The inside is ‘boxie’ i.e. the head room is squared off so plenty of usable space. I love this tent.
