This was my first technical tent purchase, and so far so good. I used it in very nice weather, so at this point I cannot vouch for how it will stand up in the snow. But I can testify to its excellent airiness, and comfort in warm weather. It was easy to put up except for inserting and removing the poles. It is a bit tight where the poles cross over, and they got stuck, and then separated, so this was kind of a mess, but probably just my lack of experience. The separate vestibules are sweet! And really necessary, because there is no extra room inside. It looks nice, and the rain fly worked well. The floor stayed dry, but as I said I have not used it on snow or ice yet.
