Deceitfully spacious, highly breathable, and durable. Those are the characteristics that I would use to describe the Flash 2. I'm 6' 3" and my wife is 5' 9". We both fit comfortably side to side... plus our two dogs (granted, they are small lap dogs). Having the two entrances is perfect for us so we don't walk over each other. Also, the vestibules are very useful to store gear. And did I mention that this tent is highly breathable? Seriously, first time I've slept in a full featured tent without waking up to condensation. Complaints? It's not exactly the lightest backpacking tent in the market, but I was willing to sacrifice the weight for the durability. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with it and don't foresee having any issues. BTW, I highly recommend getting the footprint for this tent as well! Ricardo on Aug 7th 2015
Great tent for your average North American camping, breathes well, easy to setup. As the other reviewer suggested, not ideal for alpine environments, nor for super humid places like Norway, the single wall foot area just can't handle extreme humidity, you'll end up with water pooled on the floor. My go to for California hiking. Darin on Jul 15th 2015
Initial impressions indicate this is a great tent, with some useful updates on the classic design. While I would probably not use it for any sort of extreme or super rainy conditions, such as those found regularly guiding glaciated routes in the Pacific Northwest, for the vast majority of non-alpine applications it would be outstanding. The vestibules / wings seem useful for minimal storage and can be rigged to provide cooking space with a Jetboil or similar canister stove that does not create extensive flame hazards. The supplied guy points are excellent for staking out the tent further, a necessary feature for windy environments. Sitting clearance was great, and sleeping room is fine for two. At 6'1", I can stretch out, which is awesome. The tent seems durable and well made, and a pretty reasonable weight. Since not freestanding, plenty of extra cord would be needed if one was on a surface that was not dirt, such as bare rock, in order to properly anchor it. This would b a definite downside for alpine applications, but that is not what the application for which the tent was designed. I'll definitely take it out and use it in the next couple of weekends and give you a more detailed report. Scott on Apr 22nd 2014
