Summary: Very light and best tent I have used backpacking, however I did crack one of the poles during one of my adventures. The pole still functions and I have yet to research a replacement simply because it still functions.
Pros: Lightweight, Easy to set up, Great in heavy winds and rain
Excerpt: Tall campers usually face an unhappy compromise when it comes to shelter: either fold like origami in ultralight tents, or pay a weight penalty for XXL comfort. Happily, the 96-inch-long Slater offers a no-settle option. A colossal front door allowed our lanky testers to enter without jackknifing, the 40-inch peak height let our 6’3” guinea pig sit fully upright, and the 37-square-foot floor offered sufficient room for two hikers and their 40-pound canine companion.
