This thing is huge, heavy and a bit of a bear to set up, however, those are sacrifices I am more than willing to take due to how bomber strong this tent is, and how much space there is on the inside. Super comfy, huge vestibules x2, more than enough room for you and a friend (unless you are both very big people) and, the most important stat for me, the interior height is a whopping 42 inches, and it doesn't lose that height to much on the edges of the tent. Ive been on to many solo trips in my ultralight two pole tent that I couldn't sit-up in. Comfort and room make a happy camper.
another nice feature, the doors on each side are oriented so that if you sleep head to toe with a friend, its super easy to get out. head to toe makes for a better fit for two people in the tent. works nicely.
I would not recommend this tent for those that are trying to cut down on weight. Its a heavy one, but not so heavy that its unthinkable to go soloing in, or to split the weight with a friend.
I love it.
This tent is bomb proof. Held up to rain and snow and plenty of wind with no problem. Takes a little bit of time to set up with so many stakes to put in the ground (10 total). Not the lightest tent in the world, but I have taken it backpacking a few times and it has worked for myself and a friend. Just head to toe it and it works just fine. Not a ton of room, but there wasn't any spooning going on!
Used the tent backpack around New Zealand. Lightweight, sets up in minutes, keeps water and insects on the outside looking in. Room for two if you're friendly.
I have the Extreme 2, 3 person tent, and if the 2 is anything like the 3, bring a bathing suit.
First time this happened, I checked all the zippers and the top of the fly was a tad open, which I thought resulted in the bathtub inside.
Second time this happened, it rained 10+ inches in 5 hours. I woke up to puddles all over the place. I use a footprint, had the fly staked and guy'd, but this thing just loves to leak.
It is a great tent, easy and fast to setup, but has now been relegated to spring, summer only, when there is no rain in the forecast.
