by fromTwo person tent! We bought this for my wife and I to sleep in with our 2 year old. It was nowhere near big enough for more than two people. Beyond the size issue, however, it was a nice tent and very easy to set up.

by fromAwesome but The tent was really nice and roomy. Very easy to set up. The rainfly instructions could have been better. I would recommend a footprint. The only thing that was a drawback for me was the weight. At almost 6lbs It's twice as heavy as I wanted but the plus points were definitely enough to compensate for the weight. I'd recommend this very highly.

by fromThis wsa a great choice for a new tent My son and I used for a 7 day trip to the Boundary Waters and easy to set up, plenty of space, bug and waterproof, and lightweight. Had an older 2 man tent but decided to upgrade and this was a great choice.

by fromexcellent 3 person backpacking tent This is a great, simple to set up tent. We wanted a tent that could hold 3 people comfortably along with a large vestibule for our dog to sleep under. The first time we used this tent was a multi day backpacking trip into the grand canyon. It accommodated 3 adults with room for all our gear under the vestibule. Now we use the tent to backpack with our 2 year old daughter. Last time we used it we got caught in a severe thunderstorm with heavy rain and hail and the tent held up beautifully with no leakage or condensation in the morning. I would highly recommend this tent if you are looking for an all around 3 person backpacking tent!
