Could use a new 2 persons tent but don't have the budget for it (UL, semi free standing). The Featherstone UL Granite is a cheap Hubba Hubba knock-off that gets some positive reviews, not super light but OK. Anybody experience with this tent? Quirks or durability issues?

Not familiar with it, but I would probably get something else. I have an REI Passage 1 and like it a lot. THe Passage 1 is larger than most one person tents. The two person version, the Passage 2, is on sale right now for $110.93, and it comes with the footprint. I'm always a little skeptical of budget tents sold on Amazon. I like the fact I can actually get help from REI if I have an issue.

I will say I had one issue with my Passage 1. The tie off for the vestibule door is on the inside, and it acted as a drip line. A little water got inside the fly when I first tested it, and it followed the line and dripped on the netting of the main tent wall. I exchanged it for a new one, and it has not leaked. I also am sure to position the tie so it is not hanging down. I love the Passage 1. The poles are the perfect length to be attached to my top tube if I so choose. I have been using it for motorcycle camping so far. though.
