This tent is the JAM
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
My 4th year using this tent, all over the state of CO in every mountain range and every weather condition. No leaks in the rain, holds up incredibly well in high winds, keeps me warm in freezing temps, and cool in the summer with the dual side mesh doors. Its an overall very sturdy unit. I've never needed a footprint, the material is well made as is and I've pitched on various surfaces. Decent vestibule size on both sides where my gear and shoes have always stayed dry. Plenty of head room while laying down and 3 interior pockets (1 on each side of the floor and 1 loft type). I am upgrading to a larger tent, but I couldn't move forward until I gave this tent a well deserved shout out. For the price point and the quality, it can't be beat. My BFF has the $400+ big agnes tents and my ole alps has held up substantially better in shitty weather. Only con is how the interior doors zip opposite of the fly doors. And I'm 5.5 ft tall and I cant sit up straight at its highest point. For it is these reasons that i have to move on after many great years and trips in this tent. I'll still keep it for friends and family to use as it still has many years left on it!
