Summary: Quick response from seller. Prompt delivery and easy transaction. Product easy to set up and though I haven't been able to use it alot, it appears to be of quality material and will be a great asset.
Summary: I love this tent .... I use it for two person sleeping, plus some gear. The base of tent has seams up off the ground, so moisture getting in is not an issue! I would use a footprint/tarp to help the floor last longer ... in their effort to keep it light, it seems a bit thin. It is also well ventilated with the fly off, I haven't used it yet with the fly on. All around, I can't wait to do more camping with this tent! Great purchase!

Summary: WOW!!! This is a great tent for Cub Scout camping. I bought 2, 1 for me alone with all my gear and 1 for my 2 boys, 8 and 10. With 2 young boys we all fit with plenty of room, and when I like to camp on the other side of the field "so I can really get sleep" you know young boys and all their horseplay.
Very very disappointed with my product...you're only buying a piece of cloth. Don't buy!

Summary: Really happy with this tent: build quality, ease of assembly, dryness (distance between inner and outer) and most of all space are second to none. I have a lighter tent by Hellsport but in the end, we always take this one. The optional, zip-on, vestibule is great if you have a large, wriggly dog as we do. It provides a tonne of space for a nominal increase in weight - space for cooking and four people hanging out in bad weather.
Summary: After seeing the 2 person version win "Gear of the Year" at outside magazine I decided to hunt for the 3 person version knowing full well that when tents are involved comfort always requires that space for the extra person (who isn't with you). That said I found an online retailer that specializes in tents called FVI Tent Supply. It wast tough to find info on them but I can vouch for their authenticity having used them. They include shipping in their pricing.
Summary: this tent is incredible. light weight for backpacking and goes up in a flash. the poles are all connected which makes set-up a breeze. plenty of room inside and lots of screen for ventilation. l also bought the vestibule which adds a porch!! l can't wait to use it outside now!!
Summary: Great ventilation... I was able to stay inside the tent with an open rainfly (shaded) at 90 degrees. That gossamer mesh tent body means no condensation to contend with, and great views on clear nights. I was also very impressed with the weight... light enough to tempt an ultralight backpacker. We stayed dry throughout a 9 hour downpour, too! The down side (and its a big one, in my opinion) is that the tent body itself is very delicate (natch, being all mesh).
