Tough 4 season tent with easy set upI bought this tent a little over 3 years ago. I needed one tent that could be used for backpacking and hunting in the fall. I knew I wanted a lightweight four season tent. I ended up with Cabelas Instinct 2 person tent(prior to the "Scout"). The first thing you will notice is the ease of set up. Two poles in two individual sleeves and stake it down, that's it. In inclement weather the inside stays dry since the fly and foot print are all attached(probably my favorite feature). I have used this tent in temps ranging from 100 to 10 degrees. It has held up fine in all kinds of weather ranging from high winds 30+, rain, sleet and snow. The foot print is also small which is very convenient when you are in the back country and don't want to have to search for a big site. The tent is a little warm in the summer, but after all it is a four season tent. It truly shines in cold weather as it stays very warm, with very little condensation. If I was to recommend one backpacking tent for all seasons of the year this will be it. After 3 years averaging 30 nights a year this tent is still in great condition. If I could change one thing it would be the vestibule size. It is a little small, but again it is a trade off for a nice small footprint.

Storm proofThis tent is a tank, a super lightweight bomb proof bunker. Extremely easy to set up. I can do it blind folded.

Instinct.Solid four season tent for the price. Successfully housed me on a recent backcountry hike into the Cloud Peak Wilderness in Wyoming, despite record snowpack and high winds and some rain.
