I used this tent on a recent month-long trip to India. The tent had plenty of room for 2, with gear. In particular, the design provides for excellent headspace while sitting up, even when your head is near an end of the tent. The two-door design makes it easy for each person to get in an out, and the rainfly has enough space for packs on either side. With the roof-vents and rainfly doors open, I stayed plenty cool. The stakes that it comes with are traditional cylinder-shaped hook types, so if you prefer the three-sided ones that are more common these days, you may want to upgrade them.
This is my second C2 tent. I use it in Mongolia for extended back-country trips. The weather can be 20F to 104F, always wind with some snow or heavy rain. The tent has always performed wonderfully- excellent ventilation, quick set up, and withstands the rain and wind w no problem. The double door option is great to regulate heat or ventilation and tuck in pocket for door cover is convenient. The tent is roomy with the wall, floor and vestibulr configuration. Suggestion would be to have footprint ground sheet available.
Just finished 18 day remote countryside trip in Mongolia with this tent. Was in altitude from 3000ft to 8500ft. Temperstures were from 28F to 100F. Wind was constant with gusts to 40 mph, rain sometimes heavy and pea sized hail. I was in tent by myself with large duffle bag and daypack. Lots of room and easy in and out. The tent was easy to set up by myself even in winds. Just put 2 stakes in orange loops on upwind end. The double doors are really good for regulating inside temp and ventilation. Even with solid inner door closed, no condensation in inside tent. When temps rose above 50F, opened inner door and still had bug protection. I never closed ceiling vents even when outside temps were below 50F. Several things could be improved:
1. toggle and loop fly fastener is really difficult to work one-handed in dark. Why not "velcro" pass through loop?
2. tent stuff sack was severely worn after 18 packings, throwing around and stuffing in Russian van. Why not reinforce the bottom? Won't increase weight and will last much longer.
3. there are two clips on underside of fly that attach to lateral roof poles, not mentioned in set up directions. Attaching really helps keeping fly in place.
4. REI 1/4 dome foot print fits perfectly for ground-sheet.
