Helped set up this tent at the Sacramento, California REI store. Really wanted to like it. Air beam technology worked great and I hope to see it in future tent variations.
Even in the pretty well air conditioned store it was got stuffy after a while: ventilation not adequate for our 100+ degree summer heat.
For a big guy or two people, normal activity included a lot of tent wall contact. This would mean condensation wetness will communicate to you and your stuff.
Vestibules not adequate size for much gear.
The other customer who did nuch of the setup was several inches taller than my 6'2+". His evaluation the same only more so.
Verdict: this is not a hot weather / climate tent, and will be a problem for bigger folk.
Really liked the technology.
