5 Star tent with some reservations

Reviewed by Jigme Sheltso from Texas on Friday, January 5, 2018
I've read the other reviews and agree that this is a very good tent. It may be ok for two small people, but for me, 5'11', 195#, it is a one person tent. Two people of my size could fit, but no gear to speak of in the tent, and very difficult to undress/ dress. One significant concern is with the fly. I used the tent as a base for two 11 day trips to Big Bend. During the night of the second trip there was an extended period of 40 MPH wind. The plastic window of the fly became detached, and the velcro straps which hold the fly to the poles became detached from the inside of the fly (they are not sewn in place but rather attached by adhesive). This was not a serious problem, and Sierra Trading Post replaced the entire tent. If I could not have obtained a replacement, I would have had the window replaced with sewn-in fabric, and the straps sewn in place and seam sealed. By the way, I leave the tent set up during the day and cover it with a plastic tarp.UV rays can be very destructive to the tent fabric. If you intent to backpack, this is definitely your base camp tent
