We have now used this tent on several car camping trips (although, I feel it is definitely light enough to be shared by three people backpacking; haven't taken it on a backpacking trip yet.) We usually have two people and a LOT of gear in it (lots of technical gear for canyoneering - wetsuits/ropes... Read More

    We used this tent via a friend before we bought it; fell in love within 3 minutes; incidentally that's the same amount of time it takes to set up. Super easy, super cool, and super economical. Fits 2 plus gear or 4 snugglers. We LOVE the attic; perfect place for a protective equipment and a super bright flashlight, or in the latter case snuggling gear. We stayed at 14 degree temperatures and it kept us snug as a bug all night; is the only tent we didnt freeze to death in actually.

    Liked the reviews and am looking for something a tad lighted than my big cabin tent. Will see in the spring!

    This tent is huge. Love the bathtub bottom, the dual openings, the gear loft, easy to put up rain fly (can even go up without ground tethers) and the quality of aluminum poles versus fiberglass. Sets up in a snap--they even color code which poles go where. Very, very impressed. And, as the lady of the all male house, I love the color!

    This is a basic square tent, but it's lightweight for its size and packed with little features. It is super easy to set up and the double entry/vestibule is nice for keeping gear dry outside the tent. Like the ratings on all tents, it would be cramped with 4 adults, but 3 adults or 2kids and 2 adults fit fine. There were a couple of minor stitching issues but nothing that compromises the functionality. Hopefully it stands up to the test of time

    I purchased this tent initially for car camping for my family -- my wife, daughter, and I plus our small dog. I have an old Kelty backpacking tent that I've had for years, but it's only suitable for two people and is actually heavier since it's about twenty years old at this point. I trust the Mountainsmith name, and I managed to get an amazing deal on this tent through STP.

    I took it out for the first time (car camping) this past weekend, and I was very pleased. It's very easy to set up, and I was exceptionally pleased to see that the included tent stakes are actually good quality ones and not the piece of garbage bent aluminum ones that are only useful for recycling. One did bend slightly, but I was pounding them into very hard ground with my hatchet. Still, much better than the usual ones. My daughter and I had the tent up in minutes, and the instructions were easy to follow printed on the tent sack, which is handy. The rainfly is really easy to install with buckles at each corner -- honestly couldn't be any simpler.

    I like the copious amounts of mesh on the tent, and the twin doors are nice. One downside of all the mesh is that you require the rainfly if you're using the tent for changing. That's not a negative on the tent, really -- just part of the design which is not unique to the Equinox. Besides, if you're camping in the middle of the forest instead of a campground, it's not really a problem anyway.

    Takedown was just as easy as setting up, and the shocking thing was that putting it back into the stuff sack was easy without really trying. I'm typically challenged to roll things up tightly enough to fit, but the Equinox was not a problem whatsoever.

    I would recommend a tarp for underneath. I bought one and was glad I did when I found out that our campsite was dirt with gravel and acorns. The tent material seems sturdy, but I wouldn't want to tempt it with sharp rocks and the pressure of feet or knees. The only downside I can think of is that the tent is short inside. Don't expect to be walking around, and I'm on the shorter side for a guy. But there's plenty of room to sprawl out, at least for average folks.

    At the weight and size, I would think you'd be hard pressed to find a better tent especially anywhere near the price. I can't vouch for longevity yet, but I expect that I'll have this tent for awhile.
