Rated 5 out of 5 by from This tent will soil you, and you'll hate all other tents. Your tent doesn't need to be set up all day when camping. Take advantage of the easy set up and take down. I set it up in the dark with no lights in under 5 minutes. It's that easy and the cost is worth it. Plus when you leave the site to go hunting, fishing or exploring, it won't get stolen. When it's hot, having your tent down during the day keeps it from being too hot later when you set it up to sleep. It will be warmer enough for you to notice it at night, that's the comfort you pay for. Ad the topper for more warmth, but expect to ad some time and maybe a light to the set up. The bottom of the tent feels flimsy, and some camp sites are rocky, but it has held up fine and the floor still looks brand new. This tent is an investment. Use it but don't abuse it. Get that annual camping pass, you can live in it if you wanna save money not paying for apartments. Shoot it, rough it, ruck it, and you'll end up loving it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Comfy All Night. I have only used this once as of this writing so my review is far from comprehensive. I purchased it to go to Pullman, WA, for a dad's weekend event at Washington State University in early November. I was hoping for some nasty weather to give the tent a good test drive. The temps only dipped into the 30s and the snow was was light for the eeekend. Nevertheless I was impressed with how comfortable I was on both nights. I brought a zero-degree sleeping bag with me. The temp in the tent was noticeably warmer than was the outside air temperature. I stayed dry during some of the sloppy conditions I experienced at the campsite on the second night. I'm looking forward to see how it performs this winter when I take it out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Small The description, floor plan and features of this tent were everything I have been looking for for backcountry tours. The materials are top notch. Set up is easy. But... upon using it it I was severely disappointed. !st off, the poles didn't come with my tent and after contacting MSR got them shipped out. The condensation is pretty bad due to that the tent fly (no matter how much I tried) would rest on the body of the fly. The biggest failure is simply the architecture. The walls of the tent body are so low angle that it creates a large amount of unusable space. 6" of the 4 corners is too low for even a sleeping pad. to position a bad and bag so that it wouldn't touch the sidewalls I was basically in the middle of the tent. My partner and I had to curl up just so our heads and feet didn't push against the walls. The condesation that built up dripped onto our heads and feet soaking our bags. This tent needs to go back to the drawing board in my opinion to be considered for use in the snow. This tent would work as a 1 person (under 6') great. But for 2 people, no way

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tent I used this tent while finishing my 2017 PCT thru-hike in the Sierras. With temperatures in the teens, it was a welcome improvement over my 3-season tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Last Tent You'll Ever Need Lightweight and solid all around. Perfect for a solo thru hiker who wants more elbow room without packing on too much more weight.

Questions & Answers

How can one dimension of the packed size be 46"? That is bigger than many backpacks.

Asked by: raybo
If you pack the tent without folding the poles it quite possible to get bigger dimensions. I often pack my tent this way when backpacking on a mule...

I need to pack it with less than 17 inches instead of 18 described. Will that be possible if I squeeze it or the poles will not allow it? (I need to fit the tent inside of my motocycle side pannier)

Asked by: Rodrigo
The broken down poles are 18" long. Therefore, you would not be able to compress this shorter than 18".

does the existance of a rain fly mean this won't withstand wind and weather without it? is it just warmer? - then is it bad for summer?

Asked by: paul
The rainfly adds a considerable measure of protection against wind and foul weather. We recommend always having the rainfly available, that way you can decide whether you need it or not when setting up the tent.
