I have an older versionI have an older version (2009) of this tent that I have been using for many years now. I'm not a fair weather camper and normally use this out of season when the British weather is at it's most variable. I can testify after experiencing gales, snow, thunder, all at it's worst (for the UK) that this tent will not let you down.
The orange interior that some may not like has a plus of giving the tent a warmer feel, if only phycologicaly but every little helps. The pourch area is big enough (350 model) for two people to sit and be able to cook, whilst the sleeping area has ample room for a double airbed (if you can carry one) plus rucksacks etc.
The TBS tension bands really work though you will have to keep tightening them in very bad weather (do not over tighten as this will miss shape the poles).
Overall I really like this tent as it has plenty of room, it's stable even in very strong winds and it's reasonably lightweight, though the 350 is probably better suited for car use.
My only gripe is the older models didn't come with a goundsheet for the pourch area, possibly to keep the weight down, I believe that this is no longer the case but might be worth checking if this is important to you, I bought a seperate one for a coupple of pounds which makes a big difference as you gain another dry area.
