Excellent Bargain

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Justin from Texas at the moment on Monday, August 22, 2016
I purchased this tent for a backcountry trip into the Sangres surrounding the Taos Ski Valley. I must say, for the money, this is an excellent tent that will perform all required duties. My father and I shared the tent with suitable room between us, but anyone not familiar with 2 person tents should know that 2 people fill the tent. This is one of the larger floor plans for a 2 person tent, but still will feel cramped if you're expecting to hang out in your tent with a hiking partner.

This is not an ultralight or even a fairly-light tent. It is, however, the most reasonably priced and storm-worthy tent I found in it's range. If you want to carry less weight, spend a couple hundred more and get an ultralight. I use a 55l bag and found that I need to separate the tent components in order to efficiently distribute the weight in my pack, which was no big deal at all to me.

I give the tent 5 stars based on the fact it is excellent at doing what it is designed to do. I will say, there are better and lighter tents, but for the price of the Celestial from STP, this is an excellent bargain.
