Rated 3 out of 5 by MHW Bring Back the Original Skyledge While there are some improvements in the 2.1. The original was better. I sometimes backpack alone and the old tent was a breeze to put up, even in the dark. This version has the two tent poles permanently connected. Why?? There are other bothersome differences that were immediately apparent, too. The worst of it is the foot print which is made out of tyvek paper. It doesn't pack well and it's noisy. Why?, MHW. Why?? I'm very disappointed. November 28, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Skyledge 2.1 Great 3 season tent. Light, easy to set up and holds up well in the wind. Had 40+ MPH winds a few different times I took it out here in CO, performed fine. I think it would be a little tight with 2 people, but great for one and gear. I did not give it 5 stars as we will have to see how well it holds up. November 6, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Epic Tent This tent has been my second home for the three seasons now. There is nothing this tent has not seen. Snow, ice, heat, WIND and yet this tent stuck it out. Even once in the mountains when the wind got blowing over 60 mph this tent was excellent. The tent had pulled up from the ground and was blown into a tree where it beat on branches for several hours before I found it. Not A Single Rip! I have since invested in longer and lighter steaks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great, Lightweight Tent Keep in mind I've only had the luxury of using this tent once. All-in-all, this is a great, lightweight tent. It's well constructed and takes minutes to set-up. There were only two, minor "issues" that prevented me from rating this tent as excellent: 1. In the morning, there was a considerable amount of condensation that had built up on the underside of the rain fly. So much, that the end of my sleeping bag was wet. This was on a night without any precipitation. I'm hoping this was a factor of location, weather and elevation. 2. The doors to the tent seem to be a bit high off the ground. I'm noting this for a possible design change. And the reason I mention it, is the fact I kept catching my feet or legs each time I entered/exited the tent. If item number one does not occur that often, then the Skyledge 2.1 would be the best two-person tent I've owned. August 27, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by A little small for comfort I bought this tent as a warm weather backpacker for my wife and I. We found the doors to be a little strange, the bottom of the zipper is a long way from the ground, and with the fly staked, it is a little difficult to get out of without contortions, particularly if you want to stay dry. It is also a little small for two people. You WILL be touching, which is uncomfortable on 90 degree nights with rain. We moved up to the 3.0 which is much roomier. The fly is well designed and keeps the rain off. August 20, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dont Sneaze on it This tent is light. Interior design: plenty of head space, two sleeping pads lay side by side with no extra room except at the feet where there is about 6" of uncovered floor space. That means be comfortable with your tent mate being close. Material: Vestibule feels like plastic. This vestibule has a wrip stop weeve in some fancy Plastic like material. The tents clip points on the poles seem like they are going to be serious friction points on an already fragile vestibule material. I like the pole design and configuration but I haven't perfected the one person set up just yet, kinda tricky. This is my third tent. First one was a roadrunner north face which lasted me 13+yrs with me living out of it for about half the year. They discontinued it and I couldn't get a new fly...uv damage. Second tent was a sierra design which I killed taking it to burning man...my bad. Third tent skyledge 2.1 mhw, first trip out the tent ended up with a small tear in the vestibule. I've spent a lot of time in tents and have never ripped a tent, especially on the first outing. mhw repaired it with hot tape and had it back to me faster than any warranty department ever. Thankyou mhw. Pros: Breathed very well and had plenty of air flow. Kept out medium rain and light snow. Design looks like it would hold strong in heavy winds. Light and packs well Conclusion: This Tent is lite. That came with a cost of durability. If you plan on using this tent be careful with it. The phrase "walking on egg shells" comes to mind in regards to this tent. I like this tent, I really do but now I understand it will be a limited duty tent. If you are looking for a light tent that isn't going to be abused to badly this is a good tent. If you like to ride'em hard and put'em away wet then this might not be built with a solid enough material for you. Good tent if you know what you are getting. March 31, 2012
