User Review: Black Diamond Lighthouse
Price Paid: $300
I and my backpacking buddy both purchased the Lighthouse tents on sale so the price was right. We have had them for five years now and have literally beat the crap out of them.
Only minimal condensation around the polls where they cross at the top. Light weight, roomy, easy to set up once you get used to them. Seriously, we have had them out in every kind of weather imaginable. Rain, snow, ice, dry hot summers, high winds and both tents are still going strong.
Yes, a vestibule attached would be nice, and the ground cloth BD sell for this tent is to big, but worst of all BD stopped using Epic fabric and went to the Nano fabric. The fabric does not even come close to Epic. So if you can find one made of Epic buy it!!!
The size-to-weight ratio is the best, and if any of the bone heads at BD read this here’s a hint. GO BACK TO EPIC!!
