I'm impressed with the well-designed details of this tent--the included gear loft, well placed stretchable transparent panels at the top of each door, the additional velcro pole attachment points (that can be fastened after setting the tent up), ample outside guy points for adding additonal lines if...

    I purchased this tent about 4-5 years ago and have used it for backpacking and camping all over the Western US. This has kept me dry in multiple torrential downpours (without doing any additional waterproofing, just the factory seam seals) and is light, easy to set up and extremely comfortable (by backpacking standards) for my dog, wife and myself. It has a vent on the top of the fly, a very small "gear loft" that can fit headlamps, phones etc. One of the underappreciated elements about the tent is the color. Many tents come in obnoxious loud colors, but the green/brown coloring on this practically blends right into most of the terrain in the mountains. Overall, I don't think you can beat the price to value ratio...I'm thinking about buying another one just to have in the future if mine needs replacement...but it doens't look like that will be anytime soon.

    A note, this tent, like all tents, performs better when it is completely guyed out so don't expect peak performance if you don't use all of the guy lines.

    I purchased this tent for my 3 sons in scouts. They were heading out for the weekend and ended up camping in a complete deluge. This tent for it's first use performed perfectly. Completely dry and my 12 year old was able to figure out how to put it up after 5 min. A good investment and I hope it will last for years.

    Easy tent to set it up. Haven't gotten the chance to get it out in the elements yet, but looking forward to it. Going to be tough to fit 3 full size males in the tent, will be better to have two and a bag or two.

    Roomy, with excellent head room, dry, and with lots of room under fly for gear.

    This is a great tent for the price. I got a really good deal on this a few years ago on Sierra, but i still think it's worth the going price currently. The main thing that sold me on this versus other reasonably priced tents was the aluminum poles. They almost snap together by themselves. Setup couldn't be easier. I have been through numerous heavy rainstorms and never had any water in the tent. It fits two perfectly. With the addition on my 90 lb dog it gets a little tight, but is still doable. The double entry and vestibules are great for two.
