Was looking for an entry-level backpacking tent and came across this. Seems like a good deal and allows for free return shipping. Expires in 7 hours.

Weighs less than 5lbs and folds up compactly into the 13 x 15 inch stuff sack.

It's $115 on Amazon and $150 on REI.

Great deal on a great quality lightweight backpacking tent indeed! Anyone looking for under 3lbs will pay so much more

This is what I was looking into.. the only concern is its a little smaller than other 2p tents.. Is passage 2 (on a deal 2-3 weeks back was $99 ) or half dome right now ($159) better ?

I was eyeing both of these. The Half Dome is much roomier but the weight of it made me decide against it. The Passage 2 give you about 0.6sq feet extra of floor space but also weighs more (about 1lb if memory serves), it's also about 3-4" shorter in height.

Reviews seem to agree that it's a small 2 person tent, meaning it fits 2 but not comfortably. May stick with my heavier ALPS Taurus for now..

So just an FYI that this tent has been this price for definitely a week now and to my knowledge does not come with a footprint (~$25). It's definitely a good tent. It does have complaints of condensation but otherwise is a really good small 2 man. Spending more will get you size AND weight unless you spend ALOT more. This is probably the best of the lightest 2 man under 200.00 but maybe check out the ALPS Zephyr 2.

For higher quality but heavier tents, the Northface Storm break is 129.99 currently. The Marmot Tungsten 2 is around 149 including fp. REI's half dome is 159.99 w/o footprint but it's really well reviewed. Also the Big Agnes Frying Pan 2 is 179.99 including fp as is the Nemo Galaxi 2. I ended up with the Northface Talus from EMS for $120 including fp.
Good luck!
