Great tent for the price

Reviewed by Glen from Nevada on Wednesday, November 4, 2015
I bought this tent 2 years ago.

I normally don't take a tent, just use a hammock and overhead tarp, but needed something for when my adult son, and his dog, go along. We have used it on 4 trips in all different conditions in the Sierras around Lake Tahoe. On a mid summer trip it ventilated well, even with the fly attached. On a late fall trip, when a dusting of snow was present in the morning, it was pretty warm. Two months ago we did a 3 night trip in Desolation Wilderness. The first night there was conmsistant rain with high winds. I would estimate there were steady 25-35 wind with gusts of up to 50+. Frankly, I was scared the tent would come apart. Some gusts really moved the sides of the tent. It held together. Had a few,'very few, drops of water make it inside the tent. My guess is it was due to the fly coming into contact with main tent mesh.

Big vestibules.
Great price for what you get.
Very durable.
Breaths in the heat but warm in the cold.

Weight. A bit heavy for backpacking but, relative to equivilamt tents, it's in the ballpark.

Overall, it's a steal for the price.
