Thoughts and Impressions : 

Weight : 3.2lbs for the tent without any trekking poles means this is still a somewhat heavy tent.  If you are carrying trekking poles anyways then great, this tent could be of a benefit. If you are having to carry poles for this tent specifically and you normally wouldn’t carry them, then this is a heft system for what it is. 

Size : This tent is small and I would say only for users around 5’3” – There is a picture of a man sleeping in the tent on the NH website and you can see that his legs aren’t even straight in the tent.
