Very sturdy tent -- roomy for 3 adults

Verified Buyer Reviewed by SantaCruzRider from California on Thursday, August 7, 2014
First outing for this tent was multiday backpacking trip in Northern Yosemite. Summer weather meant relatively warm nights and the large roof vents eliminated any condensation issues. Opening top of door vents also increase interior breeze as needed.

One afternoon pitch was on several inches of hail and no issues with leaks, then light evening rain similarly caused no leaks or issues.

Plenty of room for 3 adults inside, though very little extra room for any gear. Vestibules are large enough for boots, but packs end up either partially exposed or leaning up against tent.

Tent pitches very quickly with color matched poles, tent grommets and fly corners ensuring everything lines up the first time. I prefer the simplicity of this tent's pole to grommet attachment to the fussier Jake's Foot setup used on some of my more expensive tents.

Tent packs light and tight back into included bags. Tent stakes supplied are much better than expected. Also, I typically replace all guylines with lighter aftermarket ones. but these are fairly light, so I will probably wait until they show some wear.

Only nitpick is that one of the loops that serves as a door tie back almost immediately tore free -- most likely from poor stitching. Not a big deal, but it does show a certain lack of attention to detail.

Overall, a nice tent that is much more than I expected for the price.
