Great tent!

First-time use. The tent sets up easily and there really isn't a need for instructions. Very intuitive. The double door, double vestibule design is great, no crawling over your tent mate to exit; and you each get a vestibule for storage. I left my shoes and pack in the vestibule. I sat through a 1 hour rain shower and my new Lynx 2 did its job, splendidly. The vestibules stayed dry, too. The rain fly leaves plenty of space between it and the tent body. There are also two top vents that keep the air moving inside. I was impressed that there were no leaks and there was no dampness in the tent or on my gear. Dry as a bone! The gear loft, interior pockets and gear loops are handy. Plenty of room for two sleepers and some gear. I am 6" tall and my son is 6"2' we had plenty of room.

First time use. Seems to be a Solid Tent.

Just used my Lynx-2 this weekend for the first time. Seems to be a solid tent. Only complaint is that two of the stakes are completely destroyed since the ground was a little hard. Happy that I brought other stakes from my previous tent that didn't bend or I would have been screwed.

Easy to pitch, lightweight and roomy for one

I bought this because I was tired of the complicated setup of my older North Face Boulder tent. I'm able to pitch the Lynx in about 2-3 minutes, fully staked out with ground cloth. I love the double vestibule so I can get a cross breeze in warmer nights. The tent is great for one person, I sleep on a Klymit Static V Luxe wide mattress and have plenty to room around me for gear. For the quality, weight and features, this is a great purchase.
