I can't determine if this tent is free standing. Did I miss that in the description? Does anyone know?

Yes, these tents are freestanding.
This is intriguing - mainly because it looks fast and easy to set up/take down. Right now we have a Tarptent Cloudburst 3. CAN'T beat it for ROOM!! 2 vestibules (8sf each) and lots of headroom. Luxury for 2 ppl. But......with their pole-in-sleeve design, it is a pain to set up and take down; esp when wet (and, that seems to be every day! lol) Still, same price (new) as this is on "drop", so not sure its worth the exchange...esp for only dropping 2 oz. :(
Thanks to stepbystep for posting the link to the sectionhiker review; I'll give this a miss. The BA Fly Creek UL1 HV looks much better to me.
Ghost UL 3 Tent vs Big Agnes UL3?

Here's a good review of the Ghost 2 where you can see the rear of the fly. Once I saw that in person last year on the 1 and 2 that was a real deal killer (and a surprise really). I assume it's the same on the 3 but can't find anything showing a good angle. http://sectionhiker.com/mountain-hardwear-ghost-ul-2-tent-review/

I own the ba hv ul3 and it is a fantastic tent. Its a freestanding backpacking 3 person tent that can actually fit 3 people and a trail weight of 3.5 pounds... and also easy to set up, light while remaining durable.
While a better comparison would be to the ba fly Creek line; if you're willing to accept the somewhat heavier weight of the hv ul3 it is a much better buy for most applications.
Love the name of this tent!!
I'm thrilled to begin working with Mountain Hardwear on their lightest line of tents. The Ghost UL are pretty amazing - free standing, mostly double-wall, and super light. They share a likeness with several Big Agnes tents, and similarly are a bit skimpy in floorspace. If you want to save weight, this is a great tent. But if you want to save weight but have a bit more elbow room, then I suggest moving up in size. For example, if you're looking for a light yet roomy 2-person tent, consider the 3-person version. If you really like your camping partner and weight is paramount, stick with the 2-person.
