I cannot claim to be any sort of expert on tents, or much of anything else. However, a very close uncle once said to (my then girlfriend and now wife) "if Chad desire to know something, he'll soon learn all there is to know of a subject". That is not necessarily a compliment. However, regarding tents, I got a motorcycle camping bug a few years ago and the first tent I bought was a Slumberjack 2 person tent. I've used it a few times now, with a footprint, and for the dollar, it is absolutely one of the better buys. Mine has sat on a ridgeline in the Smokies during a late fall thunderstorm ('cus I was stupid) and took the gusts and steady winds just fine with two guys, and sat in water 4" (four) inches deep - and I have the pictures - with no collapse and no leaks. I am impressed. There is plenty of room for a motorcycle camper, lots of ventilation with the mesh netting, fairly easy set up (quick) and the footprint is spot on for the floor (highly recommend). I had my first set up on the windy ridgeline - stupid, but I did it - and no collapse at all during quite heavy winds (I did not sleep much being fairly new to the concept). The only complaint I have with the two person tent is the single door - they should add the second door and if buying I would instead buy the three man with two doors. I now own a USMC combat tent, as well as a mountain 4-season tent - and am eyeing a few other things much to my wife's dismay. I am not getting rid of the SlumberJack - it simply works and it is quite workable and recommended for backpacking (which I now do) and motorcycle camping. The netting is really great for summer, and the tent does OK for windy winter. I think I made a really good buy for the money and features, especially compared to the plethora of choices available (at a very wide price swing).
