An overhead ventilation tunnel allows air flow to reduce condensation build up. The Dragontail has 1 door protected by a spacious vestibule, holding even more gear if you dig an entrance hole into the snow.

I got soaked from the inside. I've tested over a dozen different backpacking tents in the last few years. This one had more condensation than any of them. I left both the top vents open all night and got soaked from condensation. Water was running down the walls and into the floor the next morning. It is easy to setup and has a large vestibule.
