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. In bigger weather, just batten down the hatches and it’s “bombproof,” as one tester declared after an unusually stormy week in California’s Eastern Sierras.
Excerpt: I like Vaude. This is my second tent after Space K2 . After getting the tent from the mail, I could not arrange a time to set it up in a controlled environment, so I was a little hesitant when the occasion came up for a 30 km trek with an overnight stay in this very tent. I said what the heck and joined the group anyway. As I get older, I try to decrease the payload I carry. This is one of the reasons behind me choosing this tent. I carry a 45+10 medium size backpack.
Pros: well manufactured, light enough, floor fabric gets wet, pegs are fragile

Excerpt: This was almost my sole accommodation for a 12,000 mile, 4-month scooter trip on a wiggly route from the UK to Mongolia. I experienced every kind of weather condition from a heavy snowstorm in Poland, through 45 degree (Celsius) sweltering nights and desert sandstorms in Central Asia and torrential rain with flash flooding in Siberia. Pros: Cons: I bought mine because I'd used my mates during the winter in Wales and thought it was pretty awesome.

Excerpt: The tent construction and operation appear fine, but what is not OK is for Vaude to grossly false advertise the weight. On their website and in the spec sheet that ships with the tent the max weight with tent, poles and accessories is 1.7 kg (3 lb 12 oz), yet weighing on an accurate scale shows it to be 2.1 kg (4 lb 10 oz).

Excerpt: Light enough for one to carry, it will be luxurious; do-able for two, it will then be ultralight. Despite its weight performances, the Hogan Ultralight 1 guaranties you a good protection against bad weather during three seasons. It is as such very versatile while still being technical. There’s not that much products on the market which combines both. Finally the good quality of materials guaranties that this tent will last for long.

Excerpt: I recently completed a 3-day backpacking trip using this tent. I will definitely be using it again. Pros-light weight, yellow tent body gives the interior of the tent a light and airy feel, green fly blends in with the environment, also available with an orange fly Cons-this tent slopes fairly sharply from the front to the back, this seriously limits the amount of headroom, two people would find this tent very confining, because of this I would recommend this as more of...
