disappointed

I really wanted and to like this tent. However, I am extremely disappointed with it.

This past weekend was the first time I had the chance to use it. We traveled down to Baja, Mexico for a little camping and surfing. The Surf was non exististant and the wind was was pretty moderate to heavy. This tent was practically useless in the wind while many lesser brands and quality held fine. I had lent a friend my old faithful North Face Talus 23 tent to use on this trip and you couldnt even tell the wind was blowing when looking at it.

I put out the guy lines to the tent and they helped some, but not much. When packing up the tent I found that the clip that hold the top of the tent to the tent polls was bent and one of the metal peices had been poking holes and making small tears in the rain fly. The wind had also caused some of the polls to come loose.

I know Mountain Hardware makes some great products. I own several items from them. But, this isnt one of them!
  • Cons: Collapses in Wind, Flimsy Construction, Poor Fly Design
