Summary: I love this tent! It's very heavy duty great ventilation, nice and easy to set up. I like the 3 pole design with the continuous pole sleeves, it makes the tent very stable in high winds. I have had no problems with water in heavy rainstorms. The tent has a very thick cordura floor. It is a little on the heavy side but I think it's a great compromise. The tent seals up nice in cold weather.

Summary: I purchased this tent for its durability. I've used it primarily for kayak camping with no issues and at 13lbs, the weight is not even a thought when kayak camping. I could not find a better price, so in my opinion, it will be pretty tough to beat. I'm 6'6" and fit a queen size air mattress when car camping, good enough for two people without much gear, but when on sleeping pads, 4 people can easily fit in there, and the vestibule provides extra storage space for shoes,...

Summary: I read all of the reviews on this tent and bought it despite of some issues people mentioned that I'll address later. I'd like to say that it is a tent lover's dream first. Water tight and bombproof. Very roomy and private. The only thing I wish is that the windows were larger and there were another piece of fabric sewn on to block the windows entirely if you wanted. There could also be room for some side windows.

Summary: This is a review of the Assault Outfitter 4. This is a rugged tent that can withstand high winds and heavy rain. I've been in storms that buckled other camper's tents, while this one barely moved. It's a bit heavy at 13 pounds, but can sleep up to four average size people, so if you are backpacking you can split the weight. Pros: strong, waterproof. Fairly easy to set up. Condensation hasn't been a problem for me. Lots of guy out locations.

Summary: Very dry and fantastic privacy but breathes incredibly well. This really isn't a true 4 season tent. At -20F the material shrinks to a degree that the tent may rip while inserting the frame. Also the shock cords will not shrink back into the tube. Bare hands were required for most of the tent setup. Instead of using dead-men we used 20 penny nails with a loop of bailing twine to stake it down into the frozen ground.

Summary: This is a great tent -- have owned mine for 1 1/2 yrs. and used it 66 times -- camp at least once/wk. or more -- sleeps me (6'3" 250#) + 2 kids and 2 lg labs. The one thing that needs to be changed is the doors unzip from the top and sides and are left laying on the bottom of the tent and it is easy to damage the screen when being walked on.

Summary: I rented this tent from my university's rec center for an early August weekend in SE West Virginia. Ventilation was adequate for moderate climates but not south of here. It was easy to set up. Room for two adults, too much gear, and a dog, with plenty left over. Would be tight for four. Excellent counstruction, e.g., about as bomb proof for the money as you can get.
