I'm throwing my fav tent - Marmot Alpinist 2 - in the mix, too, for a couple of reasons:

1. despite the name brand, it's cheap - I got it at Dick's for about $100. People who pay more for Marmots say this isn't one of their "real" tents, but it's pretty feature-rich if you ask me... did I mention it's only $100?

2. for a 2m tent, it's looong. I can stretch my 6'4" out in this and not have my feet pressing against the end. I have a Cabela's XPG which does exactly that- too short for me.

3. 2 vestibules. luggage in one, boots and entry/exit from the other.


Having said that, I've notice the underside of the fly gathers what seems like a lot of condensation - I usually shake or hang it out and pack it last.

Lol.. and now looking at the pic- front tire buried in sand. That was a sucky site.
