Summary

Awesome tent with no zippers. Lightweight and bulletproof.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Easy to set up

Everything you need for a big guy and your gear. Lightweight, easy to set up, dries quickly when wet. Uses hook system rather than zippers and Velcro for closure.

I have used this in all four seasons, even though it is rated three seasons, and this is a bulletproof tent. No condensation issues or leaks.

Thanks for the review of your BA tent, David. The Fishhook is unique. Do you have any pictures of yours, and its closures, you could show others in your review?

I dig innovation. Always good to push the envelope.

Summary

I dig innovation. Always good to push the envelope. Like all lightweight tents the clips are delicate, and it does take more time to secure all the clips vs a zipper. But the size and weight is really nice. Two thumbs up.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Zipperless

Cons

  • Time to secure doors

Purchased my Fishhook SL 2 from HumbleOutdoors for $360, it came with a free footprint.

I used this tent for a kayak camp tent on the coast of Maine. It's very similar to my friend's Big Agnes Copper Spur. The absence of the zipper is a very nice feature. Zippers have come a long way, but they still fail.

The Fishhook set up fast and was dry for the one day we spent indoors with a cold Maine rain. It's average size for a two-man tent, so tight for two people. Many people purchase a 3-man tent for 2people, and I pondered that.

Overall , a very nice backpacking tent.
