nice review. Being somewhat of a MH tent fan, I noticed the small tent in your trip report last week.
In addition to an MSR Twin Sisters tarp, I use the EV2 and EV3, so I really can't justify another 4-season tent - weight is always an issue, but the bomb proof part is what sold me on the EV series. 50mph gusts don't even rattle the fabric on these tents.
I agree with the doors being a bit small and sometimes difficult to use when you pile gear inside. The dimensions are really tight for the ratings - for me the EV2 is really a large solo tent, while the EV3 is a comfortable a 2-person tent with room for gear. They must test these tents with midgets to get the person ratings, because I see no way to fit 3 adults into the EV3 and not have some sort of ground pad fight going on.
EV3 on Saturday at 11,600 feet on the MR - somewhere well above Frog Pond
