  • 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.

  • 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.
