I've been looking for a new tent.
I like the way this tent sets up and keeps the interior dry while setting up.

I finally pulled the trigger on the Trango 3. I really wanted the Hilleberg Staika but realistically the Trango does everything I need but costs £400 less. So I used some of the savings to buy a Jetboil flash2 as well.

That's a really nice feature and what I'm looking for in my next tent. I remember getting soaked setting up my Kelty in the rain.

I’d stay away from any tent that you have to push the poles through sleeves. Modern clips that attach to the poles are better in every way.

That is for sure!
I see this tent does push the poles through a sleeve for a short way, That is why I haven't pulled the trigger yet. I might be able to live with it for all the other advantages.

Just taken delivery of the Mountain Hardware Trango 3. I haven’t pitched it yet but I’ve opened it up for a good look. First impressions are that materials are good quality and the DAC poles are heavy duty so I have no concerns about wind stability or snow loading. But the thing is covered in seam seals which were not mentioned in the info I read. I’m very dubious about seam seals being the weak point on a tent based on my experience with a Coleman tent that just fell apart. Now considering sending it back and changing to another make.
