    Light weight material sometimes rips near the zipper. Not an easy setup. Builds up alot of condensation .

    I read the other reviews on this product, and I must say... we all want lighter gear, yet there has to be a compromise somewhere. This is a great tent, just leave the door open as much as possible for air flow. It is so light, that it can't be heavy duty. I am very satisfied that it will work for years if taken care of, but it's an ultralight tent--won't last forever.

    I use the Skypoint tent with the matching footprint for bicycle touring. It's small, lightweight, and setup is a breeze. It's not a freestanding tent, so yes you have to use stakes. But when staked out, it's very sturdy, roomy, and has a nice vestibule for gear.

    As others have mentioned, it does collect condensation WHEN SETUP IMPROPERLY. You HAVE to use the guy lines on the side to get the proper ventilation. It took me a couple of nights to figure that out, but once I did, condensation wasn't a problem.

    Overall I'm really happy with the tent. I did a lot of shopping, and for the price, it's hard to beat.

    Weight is an issue in selecting my gear, hence this tent choice. I have never used a tent that collects condensation as much as this one. The pictorial-only instruction leaflet was not helpful and there was no hint of "special" procedures needed to avoid drowning in your own condensate. Built well enough, but wear a bathing suit to bed.

    I bought this tent because it was a great price and a good brand. It is not a freestanding tent and extremely stiff through my first couple of uses. This tent is light and compresses fine for backpacking, however setup is not cool. I imagine being very wet and frustrated if I needed to setup this tent in a sudden downpour. Rocky surfaces would also be a huge problem as this tent relies on the stakes as anchors to hold it up. Here's the deal, only but this tent if you are a casual backpacker hiking through casual places in decent weather. If you do this you will be happy with your purchase. If you want efficiency and practicality for more intense packing trips spend some more money and get a frestanding tent.

    • This tent does not come with a footprint. as that is sold separately: Item #1098P. As this is not a freestanding tent this does not have a rain fly either.

About Mountain Hardwear

Starting back in 1993, a small group of outdoor industry mavericks broke away from the pack to follow a less-traveled path. From the very beginning, the primary goal of Mountain Hardwear was to create an outdoor gear brand with a sharp focus on technology-driven design, superior performance and hardcore reliability. The result of this function-first mentality has been an array of incredible Mountain Hardwear jackets, clothing, tents, backpacks, sleeping bags and accessories. Today, after more than two decades of industry-leading innovation, Mountain Hardwear continues to set new benchmarks for dependability in the toughest conditions on the planet.
