Anyone ever use an Exped tent?

I'm currently in the market for a new tent. I like the exoskeleton concept and want something that is a good 3-4 season. My general complaint with most 4 season tents is the lack of ventilation for use during the warmer months. I'm currently looking at the Exped Orion 2 or 3 and the Venus 2 or 3.

I typically "size up" when it comes to tents but I've been reading as many reviews as I can and some claim that a Exped 2-person is plenty for two people and gear in the vestibule. Any input or even other brand recommendations would be appreciated. I should note, that I'm also seriously considering a Hille but I feel as though the ventilation may be an issue with some of those.

Thanks!

Yep. It's basically a heavier version of the hilleberg. At least the one I used was.

Zero, thanks for the quick response. I should've clarified that I am looking at more free standing models rather than the "tubes". Did you use one of the free standing models?

Also, did the quality of them seem comparable to a Hille?

Thanks again,
