Reviewed by Rick G from Anchorage, AK on Thursday, March 17, 2011
Beautifully made of high quality material. Lots of ventilation.
Pole insertion requires getting inside the tent or having a second person to assist.
Comes with 8 pegs but needs about 11 for secure fixation. Roll up sides are nice but appear difficult to secure in wind or driving rain. Peak vents are nice but cannot be closed if needed in high wind.
Included footprint very handy and the weight out of the box for tent + fly was essentially as advertised.
The vestibule is quite small and would really only hold a day pack or a couple pairs of boots.
I returned it unused for the reasons listed above; I certainly wouldn't call it a 3 season product, at least not in AK.
