Bomb-Proof Winter Camping - Well Designed Throughout

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Chris from Keene, NY on Sunday, January 10, 2016
When buying a winter tent you have to make a choice between lightweight single-wall tents that don't breath well and the standard double tent and fly set up found on most 3-season tents. Having made the decision to go double wall this tent is fantastic.

First off the Midgard 2 is a similar weight to competing double-wall winter tents if it seems to heavy try a single wall or if conditions are mild stick with a 3-season. Split up the weight with your companion (2-person tent) and it packs down fine.

The tent itself is built to withstand just about anything with 6 poles in total, loads of guy-line points, and sturdy sleeves for the poles. We tested it in the Adirondack Mountains around 20F, 20-40mph winds, and 4-6" of snow overnight. It performed beautifully and the ventilation was superb. There was a thin film of ice on the inside of the fly which could expected but the tent itself was great. Perhaps my favorite feature is the ability to adjust the ventilation at the top of the tent from inside during a storm. There was also plenty of space for my 5'10" frame along with my 5'8" wife plus some gear. We had extra room at our feet and a couple inches to each side in width.
