I knowvery little about the Quests, and have been out of the loop for a 
year or so, I don't know what's current.  I'd point out that that little 
non-vestibule/hood thing that I think was on the Glacier Bay, BP mag said 
tended to dump water over the enterance (and I don't think they were 
impressed with is waterproofness overall - this was about a year or so 
ago  when they did a round up of tents that 2-3 people could spend a lot 
of time in).

Check out Kelty (great warantee service too, from what I have heard, just 
in case...) Domolite line for cheaper, Quatro line for fancier.
