    I bought this a few months ago and used it on one trip. I just pulled it out this weekend to see if I could set it up by myself. Sure enough, if you follow the included instructions, it's pretty easy to do on your own. It took me 40 minutes, but that was with going back, double-checking instructions. I think with practice, I could cut that time in half.

    Included in the package was the outfitter series stove. This thing, while not perfect, is going to be a VERY welcome piece of equipment this fall/winter. It heats up fast and raised the temp of the tent 30 degrees within a few minutes!

    What does that come out weighing when all packed up with all the widgets and what-nots?

    IIRC, shipping weight was 56lbs. I believe that was just for the tent, poles & stakes. I would guestimate the stove to be about ~20lbs. I was going to weigh it when I got it packed back up. The tent comes with separate bags for the poles & tent, so you don't have to haul one big heavy package around.

    60lbs isn't bad at all for that kind of room. A wall tent that size would be probably a bit over that just for the poles.

    I've frozen my ass in a bivy sack for a week or more at a time. A big tent with a stove and cot sure makes life a lot nicer. That looks like a good compromise to a wall tent.

    It is as big as a small condo.

    Where is the bathroom?
