Excerpt: When I set out looking for a tent, I had a very specific design in mind. I had used the Mountain Hardware Skyview before and it made a great impression on me so I began my search keeping that tent's specifications in mind.

Excerpt: I got this tent in 2003 and it has been a good friend. It does what the advertisements say it will do and nothing has broken or failed to work. It is easy to set up and easy to take down, keeps the wind, rain and bugs out. The interior is comfortable and doesn't drip.

Excerpt: First trip: 2 Adults, 1 Child. Add 2 days of sheet rain and coastal winter winds (40+ Gusts) and normally we'd be soaked, but to our suprise we survived with only minor dampness in the interior (mainly from humidity and coming in damp..) Awesome ventilation. Second trip: 2 Adults, 1 Child.

Excerpt: I have had this tent on numerous hunting trips. It has held up under snow, strong wind, and still been very comfortable in warmer weather. Incredibly efficient design with amazing storage space. Easy to convert and breathes very well with the fly on. Roomy double vestibules.
