Used the tent this weekend for the first time. Very easy to set-up. Very packable for an adventure motorcycle. Weather was good, so I don't know about ability in the rain, but all of the tent seams appear to be of high quality.

There is no footprint; I used a cheap 8x10 tarp. The short side of t... Read More

    I give it 4 stars because I have not used it in the rain yet. 30 mph wind and temp in 40s with fly on, very comfy. Minimal breeze, full moon, temp in low 50s, no fly, great night sleep! It is easy to put up and take down and it packs small.
    Yes, I had to add stakes , lines and footprint but.. so what... A good buy and I hope for years of use from this tent.

    First night I had the tent out I didn't check the weather prior to going and was surprised with severe thunderstorms, gusting winds, and torrential rains. The tent held up great. No leaking, didn't blow away. Only dislike is when crawling out through the vestibule my back hits the other half and what rain droplets have remained on their do get you wet. Have yet to try the tent without the fly. Would buy again and would recommend.

    This review may not be worth much as I have not used this tent yet and am a very novice backpacker. I did consider my needs and did do some research, however. I decided on this tent and am excited to give it some use this summer. It looks like it will work well and meet our needs. I have no reason not to give it 5 stars at this point. I'd rather review items after some use.

    We have used this tent twice since it arrived. Overall it has been a nice tent. I am glad we set it up at home before taking it camping. It comes with 9 tent stakes. I'm not sure why 9 stakes. This is more than you would need for just the tent and 2 vestibules but not enough to stake out the entire rainfly. You would need 4 for the tent corners, 2 for the vestibules, 4 for the lines from each corner midway up the rainfly and 2 for the lower middle of each side of the rainfly so that's 12 total. As far as I know tents usually come with enough stakes for the tent and rainfly. We ended up taking extra stakes so we would have enough to stake out the rainfly as is should be. The black lines to attach the rainfly to the stakes was included. Otherwise the tent has been nice, high quality, and is very easy to set up.

    ok, so i reviewed this tent before and I'm reviewing it again. I still give it 5 stars, because I love the tent, but, it is clearly for specific applications and some of the specs on STP are just not correct.

    1: there is no way this tent is 93x66" sized on the floor. I just set ours up and tape measured and i got 62" on the floor from seam to seam (and those seams are off the ground when tent is pitched, so realistic numbers are in the high 50's) also, its not 93" long inside. BUT, that said, its a super comfy 2 person tent. 3 people? you'd be working very hard to get 3 x 20" sleeping pads in there at all... maybe two adults and an infant or a pet (pets count as people, right?) Still, you can sit up comfortably in this tent, and it is a fantastic 2 person option.

    2: 6lbs 2oz is a wishful thinking number, and if you include stakes and lines and a footprint, you're going to be well over 7 lbs. BUT... you can leave stuff sacks at home and get it bare bones it MIGHT get close to that number. Also, we just set it up in our back yard with the footprint (not included), fly, and poles only and then you have a sub 4 lb roomy shelter. Of course, this style is quite exposed with no bug or critter protection and water could splash in under the fly as well, but the option does exist.

    3: I've taken this tent to backcountry Alaska (yeah, it was heavy) and the backcountry in the PNW and its a great tent. It's a great car camping and heavier but roomy backcountry option. it's also a *super* quick, simple set up, good protection from the elements, has a durable build and is priced extremely well for what it is.

    We will probably get a lighter, tighter, more expensive backpacking tent, but this is a solid tent and we will likely keep it as well. we may even opt to carry it in our packs when we want extra room and don't have a ton of other heavy gear to take. so, still 5 stars, but take the weight/space measurements with a giant grain of salt.
