5-8lb is ridiculous for a "backpacking" tent. For $80 not sure what else is out there though. If it's quality, seems like a good deal for a car camping tent.

Edit: the weight definitely does include the second set of stakes and a bag. So I'm guessing you can subtract almost a pound, which is still not great but not too awful if you're splitting it with others. But this is really still more of a car camping tent, no matter what they call it.
I would argue that it's too light for car camping. I'm not saving weight in a car, I'd like to stand up in the tent. If money is what's stopping someone from trying out backpacking, a couple extra lbs is better than not going on a trip at all.

I don't really disagree... nothing wrong with a big ol' Coleman for car camping. I do think it's kind of a weird in-between tent... heavy for backpacking, short for car camping. But if you want a lighter tent for backpacking it is going to be significantly more money. Seems like 4-ish pounds is all you can get until the $200 area.

Want to pull the trigger but I keep staring at the seam that runs the bottom from door to door
I thought the seams looked great when I used it 2 weeks ago. Highly recommend at this price.

I'd consider this more a car camping tent. And NTK makes better rents around this price. https://ntkglobal.com/products/ch...ping-tent/

Received the 2p tent today and set it up in my basement. My one point of comparison is the Eureka Mountain Pass 2. My initial thoughts:
1. A bit of a challenge to setup for 1 person, but doable. Took me 15 minutes the first time. The poles want to bend in and pop out of the corner holes. Would have been easier if I could stake two corners before setting it up. The Eureka MP2 is much, much, easier. The rain fly corner attachment is unusual and not intuitive, but I think it will work. You need a minimum of 6 stakes (4 corners + 2 vestibules). 2 more stakes to guy out the end vents and 2 for guy lines above the doors in rough weather. The stake loops are a bit thick, so I'm not sure how well the Y-stakes will hold the corners.
2. Inside the walls are almost vertical and there's plenty of space to sit up. Plenty of length for me (6' 1") not to bump the end walls, even without the corners staked. The width is tight; too tight for two of me but should be fine for me and my 12yo son. (gear will have to go in the vestibules) The Eureka MP2 length is tighter, but the width is roomier. For 1p, I would pick the extra length, for 2p, the extra width.
3. Zippers, seams, stitching, etc. are all neat and appear to be good quality. Zippers move very easily and didn't snag.
4. Interior is sparse. No gear storage pockets, just a single hook suspended from the ceiling.
5. Easily packs back into its bag and compresses to 6"D x 18"L.

Weight breakdown (not exact due to rounding):
Total as received: 2350g (5 lb, 3oz)
Tent: 711g (25.1oz)
Fly: 575g (20.3oz)
Poles: 530g (18.7oz)
Pole Bag: 17g (0.6oz)
Tent Bag: 69g (2.4oz)
Stakes, 8 aluminum, hook + bag: 124g (4.4oz)
Total, Setup without footprint: 2026g (4 lbs, 7oz)

Extras:
Footprint: 220g (7.8oz)
Bag for footprint: 10g (0.35oz)
Stakes, 6 aluminum, Y: 77g (2.7oz)
Strap to bundle everything together: 17g (0.6oz)

The NTK tent has fiberglass poles and polyester fabric. Those are much cheaper, inferior materials. The NTK tent is not better by any means.

This thing looks identical to my REI passage 2. Canopy and all, same color scheme as well.
This one [rei.com]? Not seeing it.

It is on sale for $110 now! I received this and set it up in the backyard. Fly is interesting to set up but should be easier now that I've done it once. Mine is going back because a strap is sewn on upside down but I will probably reorder at $110.

Thanks for info! I saw that it even cheaper now. Wonder what if we can wait? Maybe it can be had for less than $100?

I used my new 2p tent this weekend for two nights. Great tent for $80 (or less). A bit wonky to setup, but once up, it's sturdy and well made. My biggest complaint is that you can't adjust the ventilation without unzipping the door to either: open/close a vestibule, or adjust the guy line on either end. As a bonus, you can setup to tent with just the footprint, poles, fly, and stakes. Great option if you want to save 25oz and/or want a more open air experience.

I got this tent as well and also thought it was unusual to set up. I ended up returning it but on the rainfly, did you just strap it onto the poles where the tent attaches to the poles?
