Tadpole is a good 2 man tent!
This is a smart little tent and light weight and well designed. Quick to put up, it packs into a small size when heading out. Ingenious, really. The fly does touch the interior toward the foot-end, and some dew can collect there. But it stays dry in the rain. It would be nice if North Face had included some extra pins, as there seems an extra pair could be used on the fly near the foot end.

Great Tent for Beginners!
Tadpole is a really easy tent for beginners. Very easy set up, pretty spacious as long as you aren't too tall. Perfect for one person and a four legged bundle of love. Would recommend it to anyone, very waterproof, love the mesh ceiling, perfect for stargazing while falling asleep. Great product. Buy the footprint to prolong the life of the tent. Love the color name: yam. =)
