Great tent for Boy Scouts

Verified Buyer Reviewed by flyfishboy from Scottsdale, AZ on Wednesday, June 2, 2010
Our Scout Troop uses tents [ as well as other patrol gear] to reinforce the patrol method for our Boy Scout program. The Scouts wear our/ destroy tents every 4-5 years, so we buy a lot of them at a time. In the past w have used Coleman [ too heavy ] and Eureka [bad pole quality and weak shock cording] We tried 1 of these Alps tents on a few trip last year with good results. We needed 20 tents this summer for replacement, Sierra Pacific had a great deal on them. We hope to get 4 solid years out of this purchase [ approx 80 nights of camping]
