So we had the great idea to test our new tents out in some rain. The rain it turned into 8 hours of down pour and up to 60 mph winds. This tent held up to it all (pic is from morning after). The inside was completely dry in the morning (I did use a tarp underneath it)!! Having it packed down to about 6" x 8" in a compression sack without the poles, this tent has become my ultimate backpacking tent for how inexpensive it was. A buddy of mine actually just bought one of these he was so impressed. It fit myself and another person quite comfortably for sleeping thanks to the vestibules holding our gear. I don't think 2 people could do much else in it. All in all I would say this is one of the best tents as far as bang for your buck. Especially if you can find it on SAC.

Very happy with this tent. Used it at Sasquatch music festival over 4 nights, it was sunny most of the time but it did rain overnight a couple time and the tent kept us (me and the gf) completely dry. No moisture/condensation in the tent either at all. We did have a tarp underneath to keep the bottom dry, that worked great. In terms of room, it's great for two people, little cozy but a good size, doesn't feel cramped. That said, there wasn't really any room for our bags inside the tent. I suppose you could fit your bag under the vestibule but we just kept them in the car. Great tent overall!
It does not come with one and unfortunately we do not sell one either.

I love this tent. I use mine as a solo tent and you can fit yourself and all your gear, no problem! The fly creates a vestibule outside of each door so storing gear for 2 people should not be a problem. You would have to be especially close to share this tent with another. It has enough room for 2 people to sleep but you will be very close to that other person. All in all a great tent and a great deal!!!

I got this tent about 6 months ago and have used it three times. The first night I used it there was a steady rain all night and I had not waterproofed it at all, I just relied on the factory sealing. The tent worked perfectly, no moisture inside, the fly held up nicely, and no condensation at all. The ventilation on this tent is amazing. Vestibules are nice and big too. It is light enough to carry for extended periods of time yourself, but splitting up the pieces between two people is nice too.
All in all, a great tent!
How reliable are the pole clips in heavy wind, and bad weather ?

Very, they snap on really tight to the poles. The only thing that I would say would be a bit iffy would be the center "C" clip that holds the tent body to the main poles. Everything else is money.
