Great summer tent and a few tips..

Reviewed by Mixo from Salt Lake City, Ut on Wednesday, July 20, 2011
Great tent over all, especially for the southwest. Lots of mesh and great views. No problems in the rain at all. Good breathability because of the front flap vent and roof torque vent. Your stuff will get dusty in the wind. Rain fly does not hit the ground but it his been in driving gale force rain with no leaks. Nice dual vestibules and doors, but a little tricky exiting in the rain.

A few tips: you need lots of stakes for a good tight pitch. THE MOST important thing for a tight pitch is to guy-line about 16 inches from both of the side fly ground stake loops (bottom point of vestibule at the end of the fly zipper). Took me a while to figure this out. Even the product photos show an improper flabby pitch.

Previous reviewer talking about pole ends: pull the shock cord knot back toward the pole and press the knot against the cord and carefully plug it all together. Absolutely no workmanship issues so far.
