Verified Buyer Reviewed by Anonymous from Colorado on Saturday, June 7, 2014We are modest users of this tent, 2 or 3 times per season, and like it. While too heavy for backpacking it's a compact and light basic tent. Held up well in moderate rain. A bit noisy in heavy wind but stood up well without collapse.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by erinkay from Vancouver on Tuesday, May 27, 2014I used this tent for the first time last weekend. My only concern is the footprint that was shipped with the tent is too small so where the bottom of the tent touched the damp ground, it soaked right through the tent floor. Aside from that, the tent was very easy to set up and i was impressed with its overall quality.

I have been using Sierra Design products for more than 40 years and I like their design philosopy and quality construction. This tent is no exception. Set it up once at home before you need to, find vague instructions and figure out what they mean. Not your standard tent for setup, but good once you figure it out.
This tent must be used with tent and guylines staked down. Not a big deal, but you need to stake the fly for it to hold the tent down and make the vestibules useable.
Nice quality materials, includes a footprint and gear loft. You might want some more guylines and stakes in a heavy wind. Like the doors and vestibules on each end. Not incredibly light, but light enough, and having watched gear self-destruct on longer backpacking trips I'll take higher quality and reasonable weight over minimal weight and minimal durability. The real world has sticks, rocks, strong winds, and careless people. All take their toll on your gear.
This tent is a keeper!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by bioburger from pennsylvania on Monday, April 28, 2014The weight and quality of this tent seems very good for the price (which from STP was really great!). What I especially like is the unusual pole layout, which gives plenty of headroom near the doors. I do recommend practicing putting up the tent at least once before your first camp-out, but once you've done it you'll find it easy afterwards. I'm very pleased with this purchase!
Reviewed by rainy day hiker from North cascades on Sunday, April 20, 2014Just went out with this tent last night. As we went to bed it started to rain very hard. I kept waking up all night just waiting for it so start leaking and soak our down blankets. Woke up completely dry!
Answer Yes super easy
Answer Yes, definitely- you just want to practice it once before trying it out for real in partial light.
Answer Yes it is quite easy to set by your self. Just do a dry run at home as there are a couple of unique fasteners they have invented. The work well though. This tent is much easier than my old Norht Face VE24 to set up on your own.
Answer Short answer: I don't know. Long answer: I have yet to take it out on a first campout, however I've read several reviews from others, and all seemed to indicate that this is a bone-dry tent.
Answer No it does not. It has lines that connect to pull fly out and top is all light weight mesh on tent itself. I have never had any condensation drip on me at all.
Answer No, the fly is a full coverage fly, which is why i considered the tent for wind combined with rainy weather and warmth. The fly does open on each end and and has a two-way zipper. The main entrance end has a storm flap incorporated into the the zipper seam. So you can zip it down from the top and allow ventilation. There is also solid fabric on the main tent at the top or ceiling panel to keep any condensation from dripping. Seems to be a well thought out tent. I had a North face products for the last 35 years, but just recently went to this tent. I have only set it up at home as reccomended, so far. Setup is interesting the first time but fairly straight forward. Good video on You Tube Showing setup. Plan to take it camping very soon.
