Summary: I've had this tent for roughly a year now. I'd say I'm still quite pleased with it. I've gone on two or three trips with it and it's held up great so far. My biggest problem with it is the condensation. I think it would be better without the rain fly, but the weather always seems questionable when I set it up and so I always end up putting it on. The next morning the rain fly is soaked and so I have to kill time waiting for it to dry before packing up.

Summary: I bought this tent with priorities being 1) Waterproof and 2) Ease and quickness of setup. After using this tent I am extremely happy with it as it has satisfied both of these. The 3 pole design is intuitive allowing for quick and easy setup and take down, while the near complete coverage of the rain fly prevents any rain from getting in even in strong storms. I would suggest getting the footprint as it is cut perfectly for the tent and provides a confident barrier.

Summary: Caveat: I only set this tent up in our yard, as my trailworking season does not re-new till next spring. That being said, I set it up during a week long period in which we received the rain-out from 2 tropical depressions/storms. All types of rain at varying speed, from mist to downpour came down, and the tent remained watertight. I am very impressed also with ease of set-up and take down.

Summary: I bought this tent at a very low price which I thought would compensate for the "weightiness" of it for backpacking. I have absolutely no complaints (OK, if I'm real picky it is slightly awkward to put up solo). I love the practicality (over-entrance shelf, vestibule, pockets, loft loops, totally water proof), but the fact that I trust it tops everything else. I've used it for 2 years for backpacking, kayaking and car camping and have never had a problem with it.

Summary: On my request a friend in the US purchased for me this tent in July 2007. I have used it the first time in September in Chamonix, France, exactly when a three-day really strong wind made life miserable day and night to all campers in the area. Because of the wind, it took me more than 30 minutes to pitch the tent but once in place I can assure it was rock solid.

Summary: As the previous hiker says, this is a good tent for someone 6'2". The vestibule is perfect for taking off muddy boots at the 'front door'. I have camped in WMNF in NH during the fall and have remained dry throughout many rains.

Summary: I love this tent. I am 6'2" and I fit very well inside. I love the vestibule where you can sit half in the tent and slip off your boots keeping the tent clean and dry. Great ventilation and window. It sets up in less than five minutes, stands strong and looks great. I recommend the matching foot print to protect the floor.

Summary: I have used this tent for all seasons. On first use we were in an ice storm and it held up perfectly. My hubby is a 6' non-camper and he was very comfortable in this tent. I like to camp light, warm and dry, so this tent suits my needs very well.
