by fromIt's not bad Setup was a breeze. The liner, tent and rain fly snaps together and tent was up in 5 minutes. Camped with my wife and 2 kids in Jedediah Smith Redwood state park and there was just enough room. There were lots of condensation collected on the inside of the fly. there is a about 6 inches from the ground in the tent. i can feel the wind blowing in from the gap at the bottom of the fly through this vent.

by fromSolid, Well Built Tent! Used this tent for an over-niter in the Weminuche Wilderness. I wanted to get a feel for how it would perform in colder temps before the weather gets nice. It did great! It's a little bulky for backpacking, but the trade-off is a huge tent. Very roomy. The tent seems, corners, and material are quality, only gripe is that the vestibule zippers are all but impossible to open from the inside. They snag on the zipper cover constantly, which can definitely cause a few choice words to float to the tip of your tongue. To end on a positive note: the tent performed top notch throughout a windy, about 15-20 mph, night with the temps getting down to about 17-18 degrees.

by fromGreat tent So I have only set his up in the back yard so far but my initial impression is a good one. It is pretty easy to set up (even by myself I was able to set it up easily). I like the two door and two vestibule design. Being able to set up the one vestibule with trekking poles is a nice feature. It is really not that heavy or bulky for its capacity and it fits in My Osprey Aether 85 easily. Ventilation seems like it might have some issues since most of the mesh is at the top and the doors are mostly covered with a this strip of mesh at the top and bottom. This seems like it might be good for the rain so you could leave the vestibule open and still be dry inside. Some things I noticed that are a little difficult. If you are using the tent with the footprint which I really recommend it is hard to align the tent and foot print as one side is slightly shorter then the other. To make this more simple I took some colored zip ties and attached them to the stake straps on both the foot print and the tent. Now I just have to match green to green and red to red. REI does this with their tents and it makes it so easy to get things lined up quickly. Also if you are going to use your trekking poles with the fly you NEED to bring some extra cord and stakes to keep it up. They will not stand on their own. Even just some extra cord and some carabiners would work if you tied the cords to some trees. This seems like a solid tent and a great add to my gear for bigger group backpacking tents.

by fromWhat a Great Tent... Took this tent to the beach for a weekend camping trip at Padre Island, TX. Worked out great. Perfectly roomy for my wife and I plus our two very active kids. We are able to fit a queen and twin size air mattress inside perfectly. We had steady winds around 18-24 mph with an occasional gust. After staking the fly down nice and tight, the thing didn't move at all. No rain, but it looks like it can take a beating. Like that it has pockets in all the corners top and bottom, big doors, and mesh top for stargazing. It packs nice and small (for car camping - I wouldn't hike with it). The pole setup is pretty neat once you figure it out. Don't like the zippers. The door zippers have a tendency to get stuck and one door popped (although it was a simple fix). Also, the vestibule door that allows you to use with poles is hard to unzip from the inside since it has two zippers that from from top to bottom. Overall, this is a great tent. I purchased it at 50% off, so I feel like I got a great deal.
