The Fury ($399) is a great-looking tent; well designed, sturdy and at about seven pounds not too heavy for a true winter-oriented tent. Its hooped vestibule is a particularly useful feature for winter camping, as you can store lots of stuff there or use it as a kitchen (with good ventilation, of course). The Fusion 2 ($299) will work, but has more ventilation than the Fury so will be a little colder at night. Plus, it has a stake-out vestibule, which is almost impossible to use for more than gear storage. Better for occasional winter use in fair conditions, rather than regular, serious winter use.
There are many other fine tents out there, of course. Mountain Hardwear's Trango Assault ($395), Sierra Designs Tiros AST ($425), and Dana Designs' Jana ($475) are all tough, winter-tested two-person tents.
