The MSR Fury 2-person mountaineering tent offers unmatched double-wall strength and reliability. Its small footprint allows it to be pitched with minimal platform prep on steep slopes and ridges and it weighs just 6 lbs. 4 oz. (2.84 kg). A roomy, hooped front vestibule maximizes critical interior space and a large rear window keeps weight down without compromising the excellent cross-ventilation that’s mandatory in a tent of this size.

I have the Moss Stardome II, which is the fury with two doors. I'm actually jealous of the weight savings from taking out one door, but I love this tent too much to really complain. The old version had a transition-tent-like ceiling panel that made this into a very good backpacking tent for the Sierras or the Wind Rivers, but I've also used this tent in Rocky Mountain National Park during an impressively rainy 4-day trip. Stayed dry and secure through thundersnow and thunder showers, high winds and cold nights.
My only complaint is that this tent is not really designed for tall people. My brother and I (both 6'1") were COZY in the tent, and consistently had to sort of crab-walk out of the vestibule door in the mornings. This made for rather awkward procedures when it rained, as brushing against the zipper tended to put water on us.
I could definitely see this working differently if you were camped on snow, and could therefore dig out under the vestibule a bit. Still, I cannot imagine a better double-wall tent for mountaineering, and look forward to kicking the crap out of it in the future.
After 8,500 miles of walking in three years with one primary tent I guess I can say a few words about MSR tents. I carried the Fusion II but this tent looks like a close relative. From every extreme to include getting shot in New Mexico ( the tent with me in it...tent repaired with dental floss...me? no holes.) I crossed the Rockies three times in winter, and every other major range in North America's lower 48. I adored this tent. The color was perfect as I often had to disappear once the sun went down...you name it I saw it...as did my tent. I have no complaints. If I could find another for my next adventure I would own it...or maybe two.
I have to agree with Chilly52. The vestibule is annoying to enter/exit.
However I love the tent and could not find the same qualities (big vestibule, double wall, lightweight) in any other tent out there.
Just fyi, I had to use it in Alaskan summer and had not much condensation until about 40 degrees in a humid weather.
Tent is easy to set up with the new clip system - I'm glad they went away from the sleeves. Tons of guy points, ventilation zips are nice (we experienced minimal condensation at 10,000' on Rainier), vestibule is just big enough for two climber's packs/stove/boots/etc. Recommended for mountaineering and winter camping.
I've owned 2 of these tents when they were made by Moss. I have never, ever entered or exited the tent through the vestibule. I would buy this tent again if it had anothe door.
