Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Reviewed by Inua from Massachusetts on Sunday, April 9, 2017I bought this as a replacement for a Cabela Pine Ridge Dome 4 that I had for 15 years. I chose this as it was incredibly light, and would be packed for airplane travel for the 3 of us to use. The weight is fantastic, however the size is small. This would be tight for 3 - I can't see 4. Perfect for two, and I use this tent for solo camping most often.
It has withstood torrential rains- but be cautious of the door in the rain- it opens directly above the bathtub floor- and if you have gear by the door- it WILL get wet. My suggestion is to keep the fly as closed as possible and crawl in as low as you can go.
Be careful of the screens on the doors- they seem thin- So I have been extra cautious with zipping.
The features of the tent are great- nice and breezy- good airflow when needed, and nice and buttoned up when that is needed too.
Easy set up. Directions are on the bag, which is helpful.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mitch from CO on Saturday, April 1, 2017I got this tent for myself and my 2 children (6 y/o & 8y/o)and our little dog. I was blown away by the actual floor space. Definitely room for us all and our gear. Very simple to set up and tear down. The rainfly is great. Would definitely recommend! I am interested in purchasing another one to have down the road.
Reviewed by Antonio O. from San Francisco on Wednesday, February 22, 2017This tent uses very good materials; check out more expensive tents. they use aluminum rods, aluminum stakes. This one does so, also. Went to Joshua Tree for a 4-night stay and it rained 2 of 4 days, on both nights the wind was also very heavy. except for soft ground in one of the 6 spots we staked the tent leading to the stake coming loose, we had no issues. Great Great tent.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by SuperSkier from Hood River on Wednesday, December 21, 2016Haven't used the tent yet, but it'll provide ample room for car or raft camping.
Reviewed by Eric from Wisonsin on Monday, November 7, 2016We have recently started putting our base camping gear in our flight luggage. Tent, air mattresses, Sleeping bags, and single burner stove. This tent takes up little space, is lightweight, sturdy, and sets up quickly. Lot's of room for my wife and I. I'm 6'2". Love it.

No, it doesn't. You'll have to buy one.
This item does not come with a foot print.
“Looking for a lightweight tent for 3 oeople for backpacking Appalachian trail. What is the weight of this tent?”
About 7 1/2 lbs I think. Pretty light for a 4 man tent but also kinda tight spaced for 4. It's huge for 3 though.

I believe the 96 is the door side. I am fairly tall, I usually sleep parallel with the door and I believe that was why.
Yes, the doors are on the long side. It is quite roomy - we slept comfortably this summer: 2 tall adults, a 9 year old, and a 60 pound golden retriever. :)
“The specs for the Vestibule: 15 sq.ft. each has to be wrong. The 2013 model from mountainsmith has them at 21 ft² for both. Just wandering if anyone knows the correct Vestibule space on each side of the tent? Thanks”
I helped a friend with essentially this same question last summer and set up my tent and made some rough measurements for him. By my calculations, each vestibule is about 8 sq ft. 21 sounds like it might be a cubic foot specification for the total volume of the vestibules.
The tent floor dimensions are 98"x84" the ALPS (#4195F) queen size air mattress is 80"x60", so it should fit.
