  • Excerpt: I purchased this tent in October to use for basic camping. I do much car camping but usually out on backroads in the forest or out in the Mojave desert so a tent to withstand the elements was highly desired. So far I have used the tent once for a weekend camp trip in the desert. Second day we had gust up to 40 mph and the tent stood strong as expected. Set up was simple with the pole clips and clip on fly once I figured out what went where.

This is the best backpacking tent I have ever owned.

11 October 2009
  • Excerpt: This is the best backpacking tent I have ever owned. It is an awesome tent. This is a premium tent at a bargain price. First use was in a terrible rain storm. It was raining when we hit the trail, raining when we set up camp, raining when we went to bed, and raining when we got up. The tent did not leak a drop. I did not seal the seams (I know I should) and I did not guy out the fly but the ventilation was fine. Very little condensation with me and my son in it.
