    REI Passage 1 Tentis rated4.5out of5by40.
    Rated4out of5byfromGood ValueWell satisfied with this next level upgrade from a Wenzel. Survived heavy rains and serious 50+ winds. Indeed, the footprint is slightly off size to share corner stakes with the tent, but do-able with some tinkering. Also agree that the rainfly setup isn't easily intuitive to a beginner like me, and I made the mistake of leaving too much clearance at the bottom which allowed a mid-night wind event to rain sand and dust into the sleeping area. Yup, at least 2 more stakes are indispensible to reasonably secure the rainfly as shown in the pic.

    Rated5out of5byfromJust-In-Case ShelterMy main reason for choosing a solo tent is for use as a shelter on a long dayhike. If I am packing a tarp and stakes and cord...why not just pack a solo tent? I can use the footprint/fly and leave the tent in the car or pack it for overniters. For this intended use and price it is perfect. I use other stakes anyway and the water getting into the tent when opening the fly is tolerable. (If I intended to use this tent more often, this would be an issue). At this price there is no reason to nitpick. I am getting lazier (even for car camping) and this tent is so easy to set up.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat Product!Not only is this tent great for the price, it is also very easy to set up and use. I feel confident in saying that because due to some last minute travel complications, the first time I ever set this tent up was in the dark on the Appalachian trail in the freezing cold and it gave me no problems whatsoever. I was very impressed with how sturdy it was in windy conditions and how well it kept the drafts out. Even though it isn't the lightest tent out there, it is by far the best weight for the price in my opinion. Overall, I think this is a great product and I highly recommend it.

    Rated4out of5byfromGood tent!I have only used this tent once so far, it was a good experience. The design allows for enough room yet keeps it simple. The cost was exactly were i wanted it to be and the performance was perfect. Easy to set up/take down. Simple to pack and fit nicely into saddle bag. Recommend that it come with more than two tension lines. Luckily i carry extra cordage, I appreciate the tent pole splint that comes with it.

    Rated4out of5byfromUseful, but a bit largeThis tent is incredibly versatile and provides plenty of shelter in many situations. I pitched it taught with all the guy-line points taught and using the inner pole slots, this set-up held up great in a minor typhoon at a small bivy location in South Korea. I also pitched it with just the fly and footprint in Joshua Tree during late fall while climbing. It kept off the sun and a tiny drizzle while being easy to set-up. I really like this tent, but it is fairly bulky. It takes up a large majority of my pack and adds quite a bit of weight as you need many stakes to make this tent hold up to high winds (it has a rather high profile).

    Rated5out of5byfromIncredibly compact, super-easy setupUsed this in 20 degree weather at Smith Rock in Oregon. Kept the wind off me, and it was a 5 minute setup and teardown. Loved it!

    Rated5out of5byfromSo easy to set upSo easy to set up even a cave man could do it! How simple could setup be? Color coded poles go into color coded pockets and clips instead of sleeves for the poles. I know some have complained that there are too few stakes but I have titanium stakes and reflective guy ropes. Everything is cool!

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat Tent for weekend AdventureI took this tent on a week long tour around Lake Huron. It stood the weather like a champ! I slept through some thunderous summer storms while the rain poured down on me in torrents. Woke up in the morning dry! Super lightweight that fit easy on my bicycle's Surly Front Racks.
