Mine is sitting on the kitchen counter waiting for me to give it a pitch.
On the Massdrop discussion board, Dan did say that there were a couple of places you could get suitable carbon fiber or aluminum poles if you did not wish to use your trekking poles.I think Zpacks has carbon fiber tent poles that work with this so that's an option.

The vents are quite large and have a strut to hold them open. That being said I'm beginning to think condensation in a single wall tent is inevitable. I have six trail nights in the tent and had condensation on the outer which was expected, along with some on my sleeping bag on a few of the nights. This was even when I kept both vents open and one of the doors open all night. It was at or near freezing most of those nights and had frost on the outer on a few of them. I did stay in some low-lying areas when it was the worst but still had some on top of a small ridge. Perhaps the conditions were such that condensation was inevitable.How do you like the vents on it? I love my Stratospire 2, which is similar to this one, but the vents are definitely the worst aspect of it for me. I can't remember the last time I spent a night in it without getting any condensation. The vents on this one look a lot bigger and like they would stay open better. And I've been thinking about getting a 1-person backpacking tent now that I'm more willing to go solo.
Yeah not sure about that one. I'm 5' 10" and have a 20 degree bag on a Thermarest NeoAir XTherm long (25 X 77) and have plenty of room. So you *might* be okay.Hope you'll also find someone 6'5", put 'im in a 15-degree bag on a 2.5-inch air mat and tell me if he fits.
