Marmot Force 2p - good tent?

I got some warranty credit from marmot so I am looking for a new tent. This looks like the best 2 person tent on there, what do you guys think?

Kind of depends upon where and when you're using it. Mountains? Desert? Winter? Summer? all of the above? Looks like a great 4 season tent for 2 people in SoCal. Relatively light at 3.8 lbs for a 2 person tent. I recently purchased a MSR Hubba Hubba for backpacking with the wife and/or winter use in the local mountains. Great tent. Very sturdy. My all-time favorite tent is the Tarptent Rainbow. It's a single wall tent that weighs just 2 lbs. (after a little trimming). Spacious for 1 person, but you could probably squeeze 2 people in a pinch. Great tent for summer/fall in the mountains and winter in the desert, but not the tent for snow use.

Ok, I got it! It was the most comparable to the one I was replacing anyway.

I will be using it just around here, the desert and san jacinto, year round. It should be great!
