First time seeing this, I have the Dan Durston XP-2 and love it, but I can see this tent being a nice light two person option for someone who is scared of non-freestanding tents. To get a free standing tent of this size and weight is a nice option. I would imagine using this for summer thunderstorms. Can sleep with doors open on nice nights and then zip up in the rain. Clearly you will get condensation in a single wall tent. Also with the DD XP-2, you need to use your hiking poles, so if you don't like that option, this is an answer. I also have the Mountainsmith Mountain Shelter LT Tarp and this set up looks a bit easier, and has a floor and is better for keeping bugs out (although the Mountainsmith is soooo much cheaper). I definitely see a niche for this type of light two-person shelter

$400 worth of condensation for those of you who like to recycle your body's moisture.

My thoughts exactly. This tiny vent on the top for two people in moist night will not be enough.

Probably ok for some climates, but I couldn't see using this in the midwest.

1200mm water head on a single skin worries me.

Vargo makes some good trail equipment, although I feel on the bit pricey side..this might be a good tent. I'm not spending $400 to find out though. It's a cool idea though
Wow, I'm really intrigued by this tent, and it seems pretty great for its price. I bought the Nemo Dagger recently for the same price and that weighs about a pound more and has less interior space. Kinda wish I'd known about this. Really want to know how well it holds up in bad weather and over time. And as @rumblechick noted, it is strange that it seems to be missing 4 stakes, though I would venture to guess that they consider it a way to save weight. But it begs the question why this wouldn't come with 8 of the Vargo Titanium Stakes though, right?

I've had the dagger 2 for 3 years now. So far it's been a solid performer! I don't think you'd have any regrets camping with it. It's withstood up to 60 kph winds in open beach with minimal no worries of condensation. Hope you don't return it for this one. But this Vargo one is also interesting. Maybe this could be a second tent?

Seriously? Needs 8 stakes but only comes with 4? Way to cheap out! But like the color, dimensions & being able to access the vents from inside with the zipper.
I'm not going to stir this conversation to a higher temper than it is already heading. But I AM going to point out my original response to you seven weeks ago in which I referred you to Brian Vargo's own set-up video for this tent, in which he very clearly does not use corner stakes at all. Stakes are used only one in the middle of each of the four sides. Since it is his product, it seems just as clear to me that is his intent for it. Now, could I ask that tempers be reeled in?
Sorry to raise such ire, especially such an old post, but it really wasn't meant for just you. Rather, it was meant to point out to newer onlookers that the number of stakes it came with was not a flaw. And it was meant for those who might post, as you did, incorrect info that you only suppose to be true, but actually is not due to the product being more technical in nature. You don't have to add anything for minimum use - sorry you feel that way, but its completely incorrect. Just pointing that out.
