  • 2 mesh/fabric doors provide easy entry and exit; large vestibule provides work-worthy space while smaller vestibule is handy for access, overflow storage and vent manipulation
  • Stiff but light fabric spreads the load-bearing capability of the poles over a wide surface area; ribbed wall fabric adds strength while remaining lightweight
  • DAC Featherlite® poles have a high strength-to-weight ratio and use extrusions instead of inserts to avoid breakage; poles are anodized without the use of harmful acids
  • Fully taped fly, taped perimeter seams, welded corners and welded guy clip anchors create a watertight shelter; mesh/fabric zippered through-vent ensures good air circulation
  • 2 clear SVX windows are placed correctly to check the weather; bright tent color fends off depression while you wait for the weather to improve
  • Catenary-cut seams create a taut canopy and rainfly for improved strength; dry-entry front vestibule with snow flaps prevents water from dripping in when the vestibule is open
  • Expedition bathtub-style nylon floor features a polyurethane coating and durable water repellent finish for waterproofness and durability
  • DirectConnect point secures tent body, frame and fly at each guy out point for a solid connection between all 3 components
  • Poles are color coded to the bar tacks in the webbing of the grommet tabs; reflective starter points make it easy to set tent up in low light
  • Internal guy system provides additional rigidity to the structure by creating resistance to the flexing or deformation of the frame
  • Superlight buckles and webbing save weight; canopy storage pockets help keep your tent organized
  • The Mountain Hardwear Trango 2 Tent fly, poles and footprint (sold separately) can be pitched without the canopy to create a lightweight open-air shelter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bit heavy but excellent tent I picked this tent up for a song so I've had the freedom to really put it through the wringer. Pros: Keeps you warm. Sets up fairly easy after you get used to it. The first few times were in -20* weather and were a challenge with gloves but now it's quick and quite easy. Keeps out weather like a pro. If you tether this puppy down and cinch it properly after set up, she won't go anywhere. I really do use the tethers because I've been in 30 mph sustained winds on Lake Superior in sub zero temps. If you aim in the right direction it's golden. Pockets galore. The vestibule is big enough to cook in and might I add, to urinate in on really cold nights (Just exit on the other side in the morning). The cons: Kind of heavy to hike in with. I guess most all 4 season tents are heavy. It is usually a non-issue because I usually pull a sled behind me when winter trail camping. I have had to pack it in on rough terrain several times. If you set up your tent in really cold weather, the poles can get iced together and you won't be able to disassemble and collapse them when taking the tent down. The corner stakes are too short to push into snow pack and not strong enough to pound into frozen ground.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great tent for awful weather We bought this tent for a 6 week canoe trip in Nunavut Canada in 2005. The terrain is entirely tundra and the winds can be quite bad. This is the only tent I've ever had that did not leak. We were in a 36 hour rain storm with 35 mph winds and did not take on any water inside the tent. It felt solid in the wind and I think it could have handled much higher wind velocities but I'm glad we didn't test it. It has plenty of room for extended stays. Its relatively easy to put up. Its kind of heavy so I'm glad I didn't have to carry it in my pack except for portaging. Most mountaineering tents are quite heavy. Mountain hardware has excellent customer service. I had the tent out 1.5 years ago for another trip and found that the tape used to seal the seams on the rain fly had deteriorated. I sent it back for repair. Since they couldn't repair it they sent a brand new tent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fortress but a heavy one at that! Took this tent out on two separate occasions. The first time was just to test it out where the conditions were in the teens, 20 mph gusts of wind, and some snow (less than once inch). Setting up the tent took a lot longer than expected (around 10 minutes) in those conditions but once the tent was setup it was a tank. It held up against the wind and kept us warm. The interior was cavernous compared to similar 2-person tents (41 sq ft!!). You can definitely fit 3 people if each had a 20-inch wide sleeping pad. There are plenty of pockets around the sides and on the ceiling. The second time was a little tricky since now we had to carry it in our packs. We split it up as evenly as we could but at 11 lbs (including footprint) it was pretty burly. When we arrived at our campsite we knew setting up was going to be tough. 6 inches of snow, wind-chill temps near sub-zero, 20 mph gusts made it very difficult to stake down. Just like before, once it's set up there’s no problem since it holds its ground so well. I’m really torn with this tent because it weighs so much and time-consuming to assemble but it so strong against the elements. It truly is meant for expeditions where it can survive blizzards but not ideal for winter backpacking trips where lighter/smaller packs are used. I’ll be returning this tent for something lighter and easy to setup (I’m eyeing the North Face Assault 2).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome tent! I use this tent in the desert. Big Bend National Park. It sleeps a bit on the warm side in those conditions, but with a tent fan it's very comfy. Will stand up to anything Mother Nature wants to throw at it! Worth every penny for a tent of this quality.

can you use this as a single layer 4 season tent - without the fly - will it hold up in wind or snow/rain

Asked by: herrstahlberg
The tent will not be waterproof without the rainfly.

How many stakes are provided?  How many guylines?  How many guy points are there where no stakes or guylines are provided, and have to be added after the fact?
