I'm impressed with the well-designed details of this tent--the included gear loft, well placed stretchable transparent panels at the top of each door, the additional velcro pole attachment points (that can be fastened after setting the tent up), ample outside guy points for adding additonal lines if...

    Been using this tent since 2013. I live in the Pacific North West and it has survived some grueling conditions. I only just reapplied a waterproof coating this year. I would definitely recommend.

    Sets up easily and is very spacious for how light it is. The pole assembly is less flimsy than in other tents that I've used

    I used this for a family vacation.
    It was easy to set up. It kept us dry, and insect free.

    We've only spent three nights in this tent but have so far been very pleased with it for the price. It is light and compact for the price point while providing ample space for two (though it is advertised as a '3 person' tent) with spaceous sitting space and headroom at the taller end of the tent. The tent takes about 5 minutes to liesurely setup and everything is fairly simple with two identical poles (no fumbling around trying to figure out what goes where) and a short spreader. The two doors and vestibules are great preventing crawling over your partner and providing lots of storage space.

    The only negative we have found is the triangular area at the top of the rain fly between the poles accummulates some water. Not enough to big a big problem but something to remain aware of. Also, keep in mind this really accommodates two people, not three. Hvaing said that, we feel this tent was a fantastic value and are very pleased with it.

    I purchased this tent about 4-5 years ago and have used it for backpacking and camping all over the Western US. This has kept me dry in multiple torrential downpours (without doing any additional waterproofing, just the factory seam seals) and is light, easy to set up and extremely comfortable (by backpacking standards) for my dog, wife and myself. It has a vent on the top of the fly, a very small "gear loft" that can fit headlamps, phones etc. One of the underappreciated elements about the tent is the color. Many tents come in obnoxious loud colors, but the green/brown coloring on this practically blends right into most of the terrain in the mountains. Overall, I don't think you can beat the price to value ratio...I'm thinking about buying another one just to have in the future if mine needs replacement...but it doens't look like that will be anytime soon.

    A note, this tent, like all tents, performs better when it is completely guyed out so don't expect peak performance if you don't use all of the guy lines.
