    This tent was impossible for me to set up. The instructions were pictures of poor quality. I tried to figure it out but with no success. It has several poles, not the 3 I thought it had.I wanted to keep this but had to return. The poles were good quality as well as the tent fabric and fly. I did not call the manufacture so no knowledge of their customer service. STP was great with the return though!!

    Tent was delivered quickly even though there was no real rush for me to get it. I live in Minnesota and won't be doing any backpacking anytime real soon. I put the tent up in my living room to make sure everything was there and nothing was broken. Was not disappointed everything arrived in great condition and it took me about 10 minutes to put the tent up. I am not great at putting tents up so the setup up is really easy and will probably take about 5 minutes the next time I set it up. It is also nice because it has reflective markers to guide you through a night setup which will come in handy on a kayak trip I plan to take this summer and arriving at camp after dark on occasion. Does not come with a footprint but I just purchased a tarp that is much cheaper (about $5) probably more durable than most footprints. Will have to do some modifications to have it fit the tent properly but that should not be too difficult. Can't wait to use it this summer! Get this tent, it is a great price with the extra % off Sierra offers on a regular basis.

    I shopped REALLY hard for a backpacking tent that would suit my needs, and am so happy to have found this. My research included extensive reading of gear guides, product reviews and hiker trail journals as well as multiple trips to REI and Dick's. My requirements: Lightweight, freestanding, sturdy, the roomier end of 2 person sizing, easy to pitch, well ventilated, plenty of options for hanging gear inside, making room for gear via the fly, and having a 'quick pitch' option.
    This has it all. It took me around 20 min to figure out how to get it up the first time, but after that it's a job that doesn't even take 5 min. The design is really clever- no threading poles or fighting with it to get it up. All the zippers and stitching look good, as do the stakes, which come with pre tied line. I love that it has 2 doors, loops inside for a little light or bag, and a huge mesh pocket. It took me some effort to track down a footprint, but I found a Tyvek one specifically made for this tent.
    I have not had any terrible weather yet, but feel confident this would hold up- it's designed so that there's a lot of points to securely stake/guy it. I would even go so far as saying that this is a three and a half season, mainly because the fly is pretty substantial. I am surprised this tent is not better known, I feel like I stumbled onto one of the best kept secrets out there. For the price I got I almost wish I had bought two.
    I will say this: my partner and I are not large people, and we travel with one big pack each- we are not ultralight, but we are getting close, as far as most of what we carry. With the two of us and our gear, we will be fairly tight in here. Comfy, but tight- so what I am saying is do not be a 6'+ guy with your wife or friend and a ton of stuff and expect to fit it all in here easily. You won't.
    That said- the price vs quality vs weight vs space balance that we all try to achieve is pretty darned good with this tent.
