  • Summary: Summary I have owned Macpac Minaret tents for the past 20 years, used extensilvely throughout the world, above snowline, and in deserts. Highly recommend. Only problem is the fly on some models goes a bit tacky, seems to be the waterproofing, not the material itself.  As always Macpac is happy to change under warranty.

  • Summary: We love this tent. My wife and I have used this extensively over the last 12 years bushwalking in Australia -- Tasmania and NSW. It has had to stand very wild, wet and windy conditions (though we haven't tried it in the snow) and has always come through with flying colours. In bad conditions you appreciate the amazing thought and detail in its design which makes life so much more comfortable.

  • Summary: Yes this is still a great tent. Intergral pitch allowing you to to slide a couple poles in bang in four pegs and go to bed while the others are out in the rain trying to get a fly over is even sweeter when the next morning with the rain continuing you can un-velcro the tent with the fly still up pack the dry inner and all your belongings before going out to drop the fly.

  • Summary: An exceptionally light tent. Outstanding groundsheet. Stable in strong winds. The inner tent can be reduced in size to allow more cooking space in the vestibule. I do not have a single complaint after using this tent in freezing and WET Scottish mountain winters, and a sweltering hot summer in the Picos De Europa in Northern Spain. Perhaps not ideal as a base-camp tent because of the lack of head room for extended periods.

  • Summary: In the Antipodes, Macpac is renowned for its very high quality equipment which employ superior fabrics and craftsmanship to be world leaders. The Minaret is part of the "Zenith" series of four season or expedition grade tents. This series uses UV40 materials to be amongst the most waterproof and resilent tents available. Recently I returned from a testing trip in Tasmania, in the "Roaring Forties," and found that the Macpac was a superb choice.

  • Summary: A truly fantastic lightweight all weather performer. The offset vestibule provides sheltered entry. Excellent ventilation, considering it has only one entrance. Excellent interior storage space. I thoroughly endorse this tent.
