i love tents. i have not been able to always afford the best. but this tent comes close that......engineering is alsome. ived own the best that said it is a moss tent, ive enjoyed a 2 person 3 season and the best tent ever made was the 4 season 3 person moss tent..i let someone talk me out of it , i was saving it for a expedition that never happened...i do not question this design it has every bell and whistle a tent can have....there was not enough specs for me. wheres the water proof rating? i checked the wenger site ,still no more info..that said i would not go to everst in this untill i personally get to test it in some 4 season conditions..thats going to take a couple of years..but i look forward to making this a storm proof base camp tent....too heavy to pack any where. its probable too small for a base tent too. but ive tried rei base, and marmont base, they couldnt handle it........i will get buy in this 3 person tent knowing i will be protected. thats what i think i will be protected in this tent, only time can prove it... thanks bob.

This is not a terrible tent; with some design tweaks it could be very good. But you can buy similar tents that don't need refining. 1: The instructions show a picture of the poles for the two person tent, which are different. That was odd. 2: Where the poles cross, you join them with a "C" hook and then tie them together with a thin, attached piece of elastic. The C hooks are a little small and make joining the poles unnecessarily difficult. I liked the elastic, but when putting this up in 20 degree weather, ouch! The elastic is thin and you have to take off your gloves to cinch it around the poles and hook. 3:The fly has buckles to attach at various points to the tent's body. This was cool. It made it very sturdy in the wind. However, the fit was so tight, I couldn't get all the buckles attached. 4: The vestibule is a bit small and the sides didn't extend all the way to the ground so snow/rain came in underneath. 5: The doors open in halves. I've never seen this before and at first I didn't like it. But then I did. I could open my half and keep the wind/snow from blowing on to my tent mate. I have an REI mountaineering tent very similar to this and the biggest difference (which is a deal breaker for my challenged hands) is the "C" hooks which are bigger and therefore easier to attach the crossing poles. I'm returning the tent.
