I think they're too big, heavy and expensive. I believe they're 15 lbs packed. There's no way to carry one on anything but the largest bikes, at least not if you're trying to pack light. And my PERSONAL opinion, which I know will piss off some people, is that they're the ultimate poser tent to go along with the ultimate poser bikes.

I suppose if you have the money and the space to carry it, not to mention the time to set it up and tear it down, it's a nice tent. I don't doubt it's a quality piece. But I'll stick with my REI Half Dome that I paid $100 for brand new during a sale. Sets up in about three minutes and weighs very little.
