Definitely buy all things BIG AGNES!
I used the C bar 2 for three nights at a gravel bottom camp site in Ouray, CO last week. Two nights of heavy rain and some 20 mph gust and this tent performed flawlessly! Not a drop of water inside the tent! Even though this tent is rated a 2 man, it just fit me and all my motorcycle gear. I'm 6 feet tall and had plenty of leg room. There's not enough tent stakes supplied for all guy lines but pretty sure that's stated in description. Weight is as stated in description. Super easy setup. Oh yeah, the footprint does not attach to the tent and I understand it's designed that way so it can be used with just the fly but I doubt I'll use it that way so I just used rubber bands to tie them together at the corners. Now I just wrap up the footprint and tent together when I'm done. I would definitely recommend this tent and buy it again! And just so you all know, had a little issue with a leaking air mattress a few months ago ... exceptional customer service and problem solved within a week!

best tent so far
Great great Tent. I absolutely enjoy the weight, resistance and how easy it is to set it up. When you have to set your tent everyday for 3month you enjoy so much doing it fast!
Additionnally being able to realize it when it is rainy by setting the external part first is great (I avoided several getting my back pack an inner tent wet..
I sometimes got a bit scared for the tent when it was very winddy but so far it resisted.

2 points I would improve:
- entrance a bit bigger: 2backpacks and shoes: it is really small and not easy to get in and out the tent - though it is possible.
- add a button to the upper pocket - when I put something inside very often it falls down because of the weight: eg my headlamp. So I added myself a button (see in the picture)

Overwhise the tent is amazing ! Thank :)

Great tent just personal preference.
Great tent and unique shape. Good compact size and super light. Poles are good quality; however, the plastic Y at front and rear on poles are probably stronger than I think they are. 😁🇺🇸

Its a great tent contruction wise, but if your traveling with another person i would suggest a tent with two doors. Also condensation builds up like crazy and makes it really wet inside

Easy to use!
I love my C Bar 2! It is easy to set up and take down. So far I have used the tent backpacking for 6 days and base camping for 5 days. Once in a while, I'll use it at a campground for a night or two. Each time I use the tent, I enjoyed the space it gave me. The C Bar 2 is perfect for a single camper who enjoys having space. It fits my gear (a 70 L backpack) and myself perfectly. I often travel in a large group, including my students, so I like that there is plenty of space to dress and get ready. I experienced a stormy night and several windy nights in my tent without any issues.

LOVE IT! But could use some improvements
I was surprised at how light it is! Before getting this one, I debated whether I should get this C-Bar 2 or the HV UL2, however I wanted it to be fully free standing. The tent is super easy to set up, the poles can be put together and taken apart easily. The rainfly attaches easily, however the vestibule is a bit small for two backpacks and shoes. We got a surprise middle of the night thunderstorm, no leaks. No condensation during the hot months, probably will happen during the cold months.

However, here are a few things I noticed. It is a bit narrow for two adults; you might feel a little cramped in there. I have broad shoulders, so trying to get comfortable next to my wife wasn't easy. Our air sleeping pads were too wide; the corners poked out the tent sidewall causing it to stretch. You might want to consider the C-Bar 3 or even the HV UL3 (since the 3 person version is fully freestanding) and they're still fairly light. The bottom red sidewall is a bit too tall and the mesh is too high on top, so you don't get much breeze in. I tried it during the heat wave, and it was a bit too warm inside especially with the high humidity.

BA: What I would recommend is bring the ceiling down a little bit, maybe 6" and widen the tent by 6" to 10", it will make a big difference. In reality, you don't need too much headroom since most of the time, most backpackers stay outside the tent. Most of us just go in during sundown and sleep since we're tired after miles of carrying our stuff. But having width would be more crucial. This way you can keep the material use low to keep the same low weight. The sidewall should come down a few inches as well, increase the mesh.
