Summary: This tent is the biggest piece of garbage inflicted on a trekker. I took it to Colombia and Venezuela alpine areas in February/March 2009 and it failed dismally. Condensation big time and leaking big time. Also, the poor design saw hail stones unable to fall from the surface. This tent is a BIG heap of garbage. Four season? Oh please.

Summary: I just ordered this tent and am returning it without using it for two reasons: 1. You cannot sit up inside the tent (I am a 5'8" woman) 2. Where the exterior poles cross prevents captures any snow that might fall on your tent. So, you would either have to get out of the tent now and then to sweep snow off or risk collapse.

Summary: I bought this tent because I liked the look of it. It's a good looking tent so that's one star. It pitches easy (another star), has some nice features (one more star) such as the vents and has great build quality (star). Now I've only used so far in situations it wasn't really designed for. That is hiking on Dartmoor in the UK during spring with humidity in the 90s at times. But then again off design use might interest you.
