GoLite Shangri-la 5
10 days around the Hawaiian islands and it was great. Room for movement, held all our gear, and kept us dry. Best lightweight tent that I've owned. Glad I was able to get one before they sold out.

Won't hold up
I really wanted to love this tent, but just can't. I take extremely good care of my gear. I have had another brand 4 season tent for 15 years, and have used it from Denali NP to the deserts of Utah. Other than the zipper getting a little tired, it's in perfect shape. I bought the SL 5 May of 2013 for more room for my growing family. After less then a year, it had a 3 inch tear near the door of the fly from velcro on my sons jacket when he was getting out of the tent. Golite would not replace it under warranty, even though the sales associate told me the material is "delicate". Not my words, theirs. Fast forward 3 months later. The fly gets another tear right by the stitching of the Velcro on the door. This tent has been treated with kid gloves on my part, and still won't hold up. Heck, I still keep the pole in the plastic wrap it came in. This is a gear issue, not a user issue.

Best tents I've seen.
These are the best tents I've owned. To have all the extra room, be able to stand up for the same weight as other smaller tents is great. To have the option to pitch the fly only, and to use hiking poles for the support - great design!
