Summary: The Conquest I bought had a bug in its construction; The walls were cut too short which caused that the groundsheet did not touch the ground properly. It also resulted in very high stresses on the seams and the zippers. This was also the opinion of the outdoor shop (a major Dutch Lowland dealer) where I bought the tent.

Summary: Lowland is a relative newcomer on the tent market. This small Holland-based company makes specialized, high quality expedition tents and uses only the best materials. I bought a Conquest, which is one of their smaller 4 season shelters. The geodesic structure is held up by three easton 9mm poles and features a large door, two enormous windows and a large vestibule.
