  • Summary: I slept in this tent for 2 weeks up in Nor Cal. It rained a total of 4 days without one drop of water inside the tent! I had read that the fly didn't work well and I had no choice but to test it out on the first major Pacific Northwest storm to hit the coast in Oct 2009...not a drop of water and 30mph gusts! You have to properly attach the fly. It rained hard for 2 days straight! I am happy with my purchase!

  • Summary: Not too shabby. Water-tight, lightweight, reasonably spacious for two people, two doors / vestibules = awesome, solid construction, nice windows, easy entry / exit, packs down fairly small (I use a more compact stuff sack than the one Marmot supplies). Not too shabby ...

  • Summary: I waited to get this tent until the price came down. It was definitely worth the wait. Setup is easy and can be done by one person in just a few min. Total weight is a bit heavy for a two man (wow the 4 pound tents have spoiled us) but the extra room more than makes up for it. This tent could fit 3 in a pinch. Knee pole system is amazing; lots and lots of extra room (at least it feels that way).

  • Summary: I love this tent. It is so awesome! I've used it more than about 5 times in the past year. However, I've only used it while car camping in Northern California and not while backpacking. It's a bit heavy for me backpacking since I usually sleep solo. I would use this tent backpacking if I was to share my tent. Me and a friend have shared this tent camping and there is plenty of space in terms of both width and length.

  • Summary: Since I bought this tent back in Aug 2007, I have used it on 3 backpacking trips, 2 of which included rain, one all night throughout the morning (including packing up in the rain). Not a drop of rain in the tent! As other reviewers have illustrated, pitching the tent correctly is key to staying dry. The 2 shorter poles need to go through the grommets in the rainfly. As airy as this tent is (short rainfly), I did not feel any wind blowing into the tent.

  • Summary: I decided to drop a few big ones on this tent since the weight of my Sierra Designs Antares was getting to me. I LOVE this tent! It is incredibly light for its size, and moving it around after it's been pitched is exceedingly easy. Previous reviews touch on problems with the rain fly that I have never had. The ventilation is great, and if you have the fly staked out correctly, it should stay right on top of the poles.

  • Summary: I purchased this tent after reading nothing but good things about it in several leading outdoor magazines. I recently used it on a trip to Big Bend with my girlfriend and it performed very well. The first night was windy (15-25 mph gusts) and it looked like it might rain so I set up the tent with the fly on, but left the vestibule doors open. I didn't guy out the fly, but it held up just fine despite the wind.

  • Summary: I have been wanting this tent ever since I saw it. It helps that it was an Editors Choice award for 2006 from Backpacker magazine. I didn't want to pay over $300 hundred but saw it on sale miraculously for $229. So me and my girfriend took it out for a spin this weekend. The basic setup for the tent was very intuitive, but it helps to read the instructions on the inside flap of the tent bag your first time. There are a couple of unique things about the rain fly.

  • Summary: I used this tent one rather cool night (some frost) in early July in the North Cascades (Washington, State, USA). Here's what I found in terms of problems: 1) The rain fly touches the roof of the inner tent no matter how we tried to pitch it and tension it. Since the inner tent is mostly mosquito netting, it means that when moisture condenses on the inside surface of the rainfly it will drip into the tent.
