Gear Guy Review - Paria Tents

Looking for a great tent but don't want to break the bank.. Here is one to take a look at ..  Paria has great quality products with a lifetime warranty..  They have tents with features that some really high end tent have at a lower costs.. 
So if you have looked at the REI or MSR tents you also know they are nearing $300+
I feel the Paria brand had quality items that have th equality of the MSR and are just a bit more than Kelty.. 

This particular tent catches my attention because the rain fly can be setup without the actual tent enclosure.. so you can use it alone, if that is all you need.. 

At just under 4 pounds this is a try backpacking tent. (for 2 of course)
