I just used my tent this past weekend for the first time and was very pleased with it. My husband and I hiked with the tent and other gear for about an hour up and off a fairly steep forest trail. The tent was lightweight, and the small footprint made it easy to find a good spot where there wasn't a... Read More

    Easy to set up, just roomy enough for a 6'4'' person and his partner, roomy vestibules, cool design, but it leaked in the rain. Heavy rain caused water to come through the zippers. This was remedied by putting our rain coats on the inner tent under the zippers. There was also slight spray coming through towards our heads, but I'm not sure where that was coming from and it wasn't a big issue. We woke up dry so we will not be returning the tent. It did it's job with a little help from us.

    This tent had all the qualities I was looking for - a relatively lightweight two person tent. However, on its maiden voyage it rained, and water pooled in the triangular flat top and leaked into the tent. This is a non-starter for me and the tent unfortunately needs to be returned.

    I bought this tent a couple of years ago and thought I'd toss up a review. Not mechanically inclined and not a particularly rugged outdoors chick, this tent kinda makes me want to go camping when I initially had no interest. I Initially purchased it with the intent of putting it up on the roof of my house (which is obviously flat, lol). I needed a freestanding tent that didn't require staking, and this worked great. No sagging, and the rain fly fits great. It is so easy to put up, even for me, that I've added some more gear and I'm ready to venture further out into the world. I was really surprised that it stayed completely dry inside during a very hard and sustained rain, so yay. And I will be car camping, so I am unconcerned with the weight. All in all, for the $$ I don't think you could do better! Really nice tent!

    You can tell that whoever designed this tent has backpacking experience, as there are lots of little details that make it nice. For example:

    high spot for sitting up>you dont swish your head against the top of the tent when you sit up
    poles fold down to a decent length so the tent can be rolled up long/thin or short/stubby, depending on your pack
    doors on both sides for not disturbing your partner
    extra pieces of cloth for patching repairs

    Tent is a decent weight, fits two people (snuggly), is cosy in the rain, easy to put up, and the green blends nicely into surrounding nature (not sure why people love bright garish colors for their tents)

    The only critique I have is that it did not come with a footprint, but that is true of most tents out there. It seems strange that everyone "highly recommends" having a tent-footprint, but no companies supply them with the tent.

    One other thing, is that the zippers seem thin. They do not show any signs of giving out, so maybe they will last a long time; however, I have another tent (made by the North Face) which has a much heavier-duty zipper. I guess time will tell, as I plan on using this tent for all of my trips coming up.
