Excellent Tent
Reviewed by AJ from Boulder, CO on Wednesday, January 19, 2011
We have now used this tent on several car camping trips (although, I feel it is definitely light enough to be shared by three people backpacking; haven't taken it on a backpacking trip yet.) We usually have two people and a LOT of gear in it (lots of technical gear for canyoneering - wetsuits/ropes... Read More

  • Took out this weekend
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Kevin from Tennessee on Monday, July 2, 2018
    Just got it in the mail and took it out this weekend. It will fit a queen sized airmatress which is important for me and my gf. We had heavy (but short lasting) rain and the tent did not leaking at all.

    Super easy to set up for a novice camper, quite roomy if you do a smaller air mattress. It can fit 2 people, a full sized air mattress and I'd say 1 maybe 2 full sized dogs.

    With the queen we can fit our dufflebags in the tent easily and some random things.

    My biggest concern is airflow, bit if the rainflu is on and it's not raining just unzip both doors. If you want more airflow take the rainfly off completely. I'd suggest 2 battery operated fans as well.
  • Not a 3-Season Tent
    Reviewed by WyomingAlpine from WY on Friday, June 15, 2018
    This tent is only for good weather (when you don't really need a tent). It has only 2 poles and they are flimsy. This tent collapses and twists in even light winds. This is like the kind of tent you buy at Walmart called "camp friend" or something. A 15 mph wind will lay it on the ground. This is more of a toy than a tent. Spend a little more, get a real tent. I returned mine.
  • So far so good!
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Amanda from Colorado on Thursday, July 20, 2017
    I have taken this tent out only once so far this season, but so far so good! It appears well-constructed, very simple to set up, and I really like the zip up window flaps on each door. Not sure how it will stand up in super windy conditions, but is still a great tent for the price.
  • only a dip in torrential rain
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Guilford hiker from Northeast on Monday, July 17, 2017
    I recently returned from a canoeing trip of the Adirondacks and we had torrential rain one night. there were only drips from the top vents. Other major brands of tents in our group were swamped. the only drawback is that the fly doors are a bit cumbersome to get in and out of and the screen door swings opens into the tent because of the angle. But it was a good, easy to set up tent suitable for wet climates. The venting was good so it didn't rain back condensation.
  • Great tent!

    So easy to set up, take down and pack. Plenty of room for 4!

  • “Will the screens on the tent keep out No-see-ums and other very small insects? ”
    Asked by Laura from Minnesota on 7/7/2017 9:47:30 AM
    • I could not find it listed specifically as keeping out No-see-ums, but after looking at it, I would think that it should work just fine.
      Answered on 7/7/2017 4:45:27 PM by Product Specialist Greg from Sierra Trading Post
    • Yes. The screens work very well for me. This tent is a good quality tent, and the mesh is very fine.

  • “Does this tent come with a foot print, or does it have to be purchased separately? ”
    Asked by Jules from San Francisco on 10/2/2016 9:53:56 AM
    • No, it doesn't. You'll have to buy one.

  • “Looking for a lightweight tent for 3 oeople for backpacking Appalachian trail. What is the weight of this tent?”
    Asked by Michele from Illinois on 5/1/2016 9:31:46 AM
    • About 7 1/2 lbs I think. Pretty light for a 4 man tent but also kinda tight spaced for 4. It's huge for 3 though.

  • “The size says 96 by 84. Are the sides with the doors the 96 or the 84 length? ”
    Asked by Karen from Orlando, FL on 12/2/2015 4:55:23 AM
    • I believe the 96 is the door side. I am fairly tall, I usually sleep parallel with the door and I believe that was why.
      Answered on 12/2/2015 6:18:34 AM by Cam from Killington
    • Yes, the doors are on the long side. It is quite roomy - we slept comfortably this summer: 2 tall adults, a 9 year old, and a 60 pound golden retriever. :)

  • “The specs for the Vestibule: 15 sq.ft. each has to be wrong. The 2013 model from mountainsmith has them at 21 ft² for both. Just wandering if anyone knows the correct Vestibule space on each side of the tent? Thanks”
    Asked by Anonymous from USA on 5/20/2014 6:49:50 PM
    • I helped a friend with essentially this same question last summer and set up my tent and made some rough measurements for him. By my calculations, each vestibule is about 8 sq ft. 21 sounds like it might be a cubic foot specification for the total volume of the vestibules.
