Initial Impression

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tahoe Happy from Tahoe, NV on Thursday, May 19, 2016
On opening the shipping box and inspecting the contents, my impressions are:
1. The tent is well made and the DAC poles appear to be strong enough to withstand high winds.
2. There are two different tent pegs shipped with the tent. This is a pleasant surprise: I was expecting to have to buy snow pegs.
3. The footprint does not ship with the product. I contacted Marmot and was advised that the Milgard model is also the Thor model, It took some searching on the web, but eventually I found a source for the Thor 2P 4S tent footprint. This tent is no longer made by Marmot, so if a footprint is important for your planned use, then make sure you have a source located via the web.
4. The tent, as I expected, is quite heavy, but I plan to share the load with my wife and use the tent as a base camp. i am more comfortable with a "double skin" tent in bad weather than with the light weight "single skin" variety.
5. I live at 7,200 feet above Lake Tahoe. I plan to set the tent up this weekend and leave it up for a few days to see how it performs in the variable weather conditions and temperatures we experience at this time of year. I'll update this review then.
6. Overall impression so far: quality product and a steal at the price I paid.
