Love this tent
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Camping with my sons BSA troop requires setting up tents at night, and usually after a 3 or more hour drive. My other tent was a 4-6 man and had loops to slip the poles thru. It was getting a little frustrating wrestling with the tent at 10pm and losing. Started looking around for something smaller and easier and the Alps Mountaineering was it. No pole loops, the clips clip to the exoskeleton AND it is very easy to put up the frame by myself. The rainfly snap buckles at the tent corners. I can probably have the whole thing set up in about 15 minutes.
Light weight, plenty of space for 1, comfortable for 2 and snug for 3 with not a lot of space for anything else. For $70, this is a great buy
