Greg Hoffer (guest), Trailspace.com
19 October 2012
  • Summary: This is the greatest, most versatile tent I've ever owned. I thought at first it sweated some until I switched sleeping ends and then I was treated to being able to look out of the tent while still having the benefit of a fly and no sweat problems at all. If it gets too cool I can close one side of the fly or just switch ends.
  • Pros: Lightweight enough that it compares to one-person tents, but roomy enough to keep my pack inside., Feels like sleeping under the stars even with the fly on.
  • Cons: I imagine if it is set up wrong a driving side angle rain might be able to blow under the fly but I've yet to experience that., With the half fly alone one can't just use the fly and the footprint alone.

  • Excerpt: Great tent!  At first I thought it built up a little condensation but I figured out I had my head at the wrong (single wall) end. Really like the wings in that you can see out all the time and don't feel like you are in a cave walled off from the outside but I suppose that feature might make it a bit breezier than other tents. Overall I like this tent better every time I use it.

  • Excerpt: Great tent in my opinion. This tent is pretty light weight, easy to set up, and has kept me dry. I can set this tent up by myself faster than my friends setting theirs up with each other.

  • Excerpt: Took this tent on a 1.5 week summer backpacking trip in the Brooks Range. Overall it's fine: not too heavy, fast and easy to setup, didn't let rain in, didn't let snow in. Comments: - Due to incomplete fly coverage (see pics) and lots of mesh, it's an extremely breezy tent. For this reason, it is realistically more of a 1.5 season tent than a real 3 season tent. On the other hand, there's zero condensation and the tent felt great when it was warm and sunny.

  • Excerpt: This is a great tent, especially for the price. Pole-clips make set-up a breeze. Set-up time is 3 min or less. Very helpful in bad weather. Roomy enough for two, but not packs. Can easily put 2 Therm-a-Rest reg length pads inside. However, tent is not overly long: My 6'2" husband just fits. My 6'5" brother hits the ends. Side to side the fit is just fine. Would be nice if the vestibules were bigger.

  • Excerpt: I got this tent about a year ago from Moosejaw and haven't looked back since. It's lightweight, easy to set up, and really is waterproof. Don't be a dummy though, point it in the right direction. Having two doors is always a great idea, and when you take the rain fly off and lay down while star-gazing you thank the good Lord you bought this steal-of-a-deal.

Rod Richards (guest), Trailspace.com

  • Excerpt: I bought this tent because it's 4.0 lbs packed. It's an easy, two-pole setup gig, no problem even at night. Don't bother getting the footprint -- make your own. I used some 6mm vapor barrier, cut it to shape and used duct tape in the corners -- I punched holes in the duct tape so the tent poles fit.
