Excerpt: Like to sit under cover and see more than nylon walls? During windless rain in Vermont’s Green Mountains, one tester rolled back the Pulsar’s vestibule and stayed dry while enjoying a pleasant river view, thanks to a drip line that extends well beyond the tent’s single side door.

Excerpt: I bought this tent in the last year and a half. I live in Colombia, South America; it rains a lot here for days, and plenty of it. For this reason, I bought this tent. It is very spacious for two people. It has a large and comfortable vestibule, good ventilation, no condensation.

Excerpt: I previous owned a lot of tents. My favorite 2 person was the Moss Stardome. The Thor is my replacement for the Stardome. Thor is heavier. Make no mistake this tent is built for gale force wind and heavy weather. Some features: -Lots of internal room.

Excerpt: I posted a review for this tent long ago but for some reason it did not make it here. I wanted to give you a true story about how strong this tent is. We had been on a fishing/hiking/camping trip in Alaska and caught in a snowstorm that left a foot of new snow on the ground by morning.

Excerpt: Good tent, though bent poles and useless fastex clip design present an Achilles heel. I used this on a major trip to Alaska. During a snowstorm, most of the poles snapped, demonstrating that weakness in design is not worth the tradeout in the miniscule space gained by the "elbow" pole system.

Excerpt: I agree with the previous reviewer (Tom); this is a really well designed and thought-out tent. I use this tent exclusively for winter, and it handles wind and snow very well, but most importantly, condensation is very minimal thanks to the great venting. Very roomy inside, and wondeful color.

Excerpt: I love the clever design of this tent. While most reviews talk about the obvious (floor print size, weight, pole design, etc), few take the time to really use the tent and pick up on the details. So let me state the obvious...this is a fairly light (about 8lbs) 4 season tent.
