A Little TOO Cheap and Lightweight

Reviewed by Nicole Backpacker from Southern Minnesota on Sunday, September 18, 2011
I used this tent for three nights on a recent backpacking trip in northern Minnesota. While it stood up well for those two nights, the fabric on the tent was very flimsy, and my hiking buddies both commented that it was not sturdy enough to hold up to anything but the softest campsite beneath. It IS very light, which is a huge plus for backpackers, but it is also incredibly flimsy. I recommend this for those who will be camping on grass, or other soft surfaces only. Also, the inner tent is almost entirely made of mesh, so I question its ability to stand up to rain.
