User Review: Coleman Inyo 2
Design: non-free standing
Ease of Setup: easy
Price Paid: $80
I bought this tent with the intention of all 3 season use in the Rockies. On my first trip it remained dry and cool and I was quite satisfied with the tent. On my second outing, I set it up in no time but after a bit of sleet and some steady rain for only 35 minutes, water had soaked through the fly and was dripping through the mesh body getting everything wet. What a bummer.
I liked the design of the floor plan but didn't like the weather shedding abilities of the Inyo 2. I sold it to a friend and went out and bought a Walrus Zoid 2.0 and was very happy with the obvious quality inprovements although the floor design is the same. The same 2 vestibules but the Zoid has an essential ingredient the Inyo doesn't; a pole at the foot of the tent keeping it high off the ground. When the weight of rain landed on the foot of the Inyo, it completely flattened and leaked. If you like the style and features of this design, better off getting a Zoid for the same weight although a bit more money; but well worth it.
