  • Excerpt: Used this tent all last summer and winter in snow and hot conditions and performed great. No leaks, good ventilation. However I every time I had used I had relatively low wind. This tent cannot stand up to strong winds. I used it last weekend with guy ropes in Australian Mountains and the tent was no good. Winds reached up to 100km/h to 60mph and by the end of the night two poles were bent and I had half the tent lying on top of me. Ok for low wind conditions.

  • Excerpt: I use this tent in 85kph (53mph) wind with 10 guylines in a very hwavy rain for 10h. and I was bone dry!!! and the tent was stable like a rock!!! And I use it in the summer time and it was great to use it with no fly and see the stars! The only problem is that the inside of the tent get wet until you put the fly on in heavy rain.

BEST 3-season 2-person tent on the market. Great quality…

  • Excerpt: BEST 3-season 2-person tent on the market. Great quality (after all...it is a BD tent). Super easy to set up. Very light. Plenty of room; particularly in the length where many an otherwise great tent fails (e.g. Montbell Thunder Dome and Mountain Hardwear's Skyledge 2). Nice design with the lower panels being solid and the upper panels being mesh. The Mesa is actually a replacement for a Lighthouse, which I found a pain to set up.

I bought my Mesa tent with hopes to solve an issue.

  • Excerpt: I bought my Mesa tent with hopes to solve an issue. I am 6'2 and most lightweight tents have skimped on longer lengths. I usually backpack with someone my height so that means we need good room. In the past I have done a lot of trekking in the Pacific Northwest, including mountaineering, so I leaned towards sturdy tents that can ride out foul weather. My 4-season tent is a Moss Thunderdome which I ridden out days of blizzards on Rainier and that is still going strong!
