Ok, picked this sucker up on SnC after looking at probably 20 tents on various sites in great detail. This one was my pick out of the lot. It's got enough room for me, my woman, and our dog (large dog, but she cuddles).
When its setup, the 1 pole system with the 2nd guide pole are awesome together. It makes the sidewalls are almost verticle and the thing weights under 6lbs packed. Stuff sack is large enough to not have to worry about precise folding/rolling in order to get it in there and the 1 pole packs/unpacks very quickly.
First time setting this thing up took literally 3 minutes and I was done(not including fly or guide lines). If you want a 2 man tent, get this one. Haven't gotten rained on yet, but there are other reviews about the chaos 3 that atest to it's abilities. Oh, i'm 5'10'' and my girls a bit smaller than me. If you're a burly outdoorsy lumberjack, get the chaos 3 unless you wanna use this as a single man tent.
