I’ve had this tent for a little over a year, taken it on a few backpacking trips and I really like it. It’s definitely closer to a 1.5 person tent, so if your planning on sharing it with someone know it will be an intimate experience. For me, it’s the perfect size for me and my dog. It’s really quick to set up, and I like that there’s so much room to pack it up in the bag. For me a couple ounces of weight is totally worth not having to wrestle to put it away in the middle of the woods.

That's an odd looking Xmid tent...

I bought this through Amazon last year and I can HIGHLY recommend it, especially at its price on here. I've used it multiple times since. Notably on a weekend beach camping trip during a torrential thunder storm. I was the only one who woke up dry the morning after that haha. It packs down small and is easy and light to carry. It can fit two albeit very snugly and your packs/belongings can still be tucked under the front flaps from the rain. For the solo adventurer it's a no brainer.

Is there anyway to buy just the footprint? I bought this a few days ago from another site and the footprint is now difficult to find at any reputable site

Hey man seriously I really wouldn't bother buying the footprint. Buy either a sheet of Polycro or a sheet of Tyvek/Tyvek 1443R if possible, either will work and just cut it to size. I promise you it's more waterproof, LIGHTER and cheaper. You can find either one on Amazon or Ebay. You can make a small ground sheet to carry around to set your things on to keep them clean with the leftover. Hope this helps.

Def looking forward to getting mine. It'll give me another option next to my Warbonnet Blackbird XLC hammock.

This says two person, but what if one of them is 6'5"? The length is listed at 84", but is that the TOTAL length with fly/porch thing or the interior area length?

From the Backpacker review:
"Those of us taller than 6 feet reported feeling cramped by the 84-inch length."

I'm curious, does anyone know how they get the pack weight down to the 3# 10oz??? I mean the stakes can't weight that much, right? As I watched the video I didn't see any way there was an option to Not carry everything. Sure you can ultalite w/ aftermarket stakes, but I don't see the stakes as being 3/4# of weight. Also, I'm wondering what happened when that little clip at the top doesn't perform. It isn't like one could just use some floss or a small nite ize reusable cable tie to correct that if it failed in the field, not my my eyes anyway, anyone have any other input on this? I love the price, but, I'm leery.

I'm kicking my self because this tent just arrived two days ago from Amazon for alittle bit more than the cost here.
I can't answer the second question, the rain has kept me from doing a test of the tent, good companies would stand by there product and replace broken bits usually.
But the stakes are about as heavy as the poles remarkably. They seem to be anodized aluminum, I don't have a scale to weigh it all, but you would easily cut a third of the weight, it is free standing. I live in a place where wind can get up to 80km/h so I wouldn't dare try. All three components that make up the tent are already pretty light though.

Fairly good review from Backpacker magazine: https://www.backpacker.com/gear/kelty-horizon-2 I've not seen a lower price anywhere for this also.
