I used this tent both for two folks and solo. When I used it for the two of us it rained for 4 days...I mean it rained. We stayed bone dry! I like this little tent. Comes WITH footprint and a small gear loft, included which is awesome. I like the room for solo but it weighs 5 lbs with everything. (This is a little heavy when you take like a 50 lb pack that is 10% of the total weight.) So I like the room, inside pockets, easy to set up, room for two without much gear, Lots of room for one. Oh did I say easy to set up? It is REAL easy and fast and freestanding. Only drawback is one door and vestibule, but alone isnt a problem.
Lots of thumbs up for the money

I have the limelight 3 which isn't listed, but it's the same exact design as the 2, with an extra door. Easy to set up, the limelight 3 fits 2 people and gear easily. It is thoughtfully designed. Nice little gear loft for your stuff or to place a light in for night time. Pockets at all four corners store your last minute things. Vents well, great in the rain. I love the double door set up. Gives you 2 vestibules so you don't have to crawl over anyone to exit. You can take the whole thing along-with the footprint, rain fly etc. or strip it down to the bare basics. Inadvertently I set up on a pad that flooded, picked up the whole thing and moved it..not a drop had leaked thru the floor. I was amazed. It's my home away from home to me.
