Comments about Exped Mira II Tent:
This tent strikes a great balance between strength and light weight. The company's Swiss heritage is reflected in great attention to detail in both materials and design. It's construction features durable materials, pole sleeves for great strength and great use of space. It has plenty of room to sit up inside. The ready-to-go weight is right at 4 pounds, which I consider fantastic for a free-standing 3-season tent.
Pitching the tent couldn't be easier. Poles are color-coded so there's no confusion. I recommend watching the video on the REI website for this tent to see how easy it is to pitch. The fly can be attached to the tent body at several locations along the poles as well as the usual locations at the bottom corners. This keeps the fly in place better and also adds strength.
So far, we have used this tent for desert backpacking. One night was fairly breezy. The tent was very stable and very quiet, which makes for great sleeping. The doors are large and well-placed, making entry and exit a pleasure. The vestibules have plenty of space for backpacks, shoes, etc. The fabric colors are very easy on the eyes, which is nice when you're inside. There was no condensation on the inside in the morning, even though everything was zipped up. I haven't tested this tent in the rain yet, but one thing I noticed is that even when the vestibule is open, the fly extends out over the door so no water will drip into the inside. This is another sign of the care that went into the design. I have no doubt that this tent will handle rain (or snow) with no problems.
The Mira II has exceeded my expectations, and I recommend it highly.
Comments about Exped Mira II Tent:
The Exped Mira II is being marketed as a two person tent but I used it as a roomy one-person tent while cycling.
Setup time is under five minutes if you get a hang out of it and it is a free-standing tent. I always used the stakes when camping, because it gives the tent more shape and room and you never know how the weather turns out during the night.
I've used this tent for 3 months every day and after a month the pole-sleeves on the inner tent developed a tiny hole / puncture through which the poles are pushed through if you don't pay attention. I was slightly disappointed with that, but with a bit of maneuvering of the poles while setting up, the tent still works fine. So it isn't a big let down. I am not sure what I did wrong, but if you get this tent, don't use too much pressure when sliding in the poles in the sleeves, but guide the poles in with care and you'll be fine.
I am just back from cycling so I will see what Exped can and will do to fix this. They suppose to have a very good customer service.
One great thing about this tent is that it is hardly visible in green foliage. This tent is great for free camping.
I have had some stormy weather and extreme rainy days. My tent was like a rock in the wind, while other tents just buckled in the wind. The rainfly works perfect during gushing rains and I really felt comfortable and safe in my tent.
The whole package only weighs 1.5 kilograms and combined with the durable fabric this tent is quite a steal. For cycling reasons I added a durable Ortlieb drybag and Expeds footprint and ended with a 2.6 kg two-persons all year round tent.
I'm a happy camper.
One a side note: I buy stuff from Exped because they are a relatively small (Swiss) company who listen to their customers. I try to restrain myself from buying from big companies.
