5 years and still going strong
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I’ve used this tent in Desert, alpine, and costal areas. For 5 years it’s been a go to.
Assembly is painless. I really like the poles, they are a pretty sweet color and after hundreds of nights they have never bent, and still operate flawlessly. The size is perfect for 2 people with an air mattress. We still have room at our feet for our dog and the HUGE vestibules offer plenty of room for gear Storage. If you’re sleeping on Pads, I think there is sufficient room for 3 people.
I’ve never felt in moisture on the interior walls which is my # 1 requirement. Nothing is worse than waking up to everything being damp.
I’ve used it on a few multiday backpacking trips, it’s a bit heavy for one person but if you can split the load across a 2 or 3 people it is very nice. The stuff sack included is awesome. I’ve never struggled to get everything back in and the compression straps are still going strong.
If I had to offer any criticism, it would be the lack of storage pockets inside the tent. There are a few but I’d love a few more options.
All and all, I wouldn’t hesitate on buying this tent again. I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a do it all tent for a great budget price.
