User Review: Coleman Inyo 2
Design: three-season non-freestanding hoop
Price Paid: $55
I own the hoop model just before the Inyo 2 came out. I don't recall the name of it (and I'm currently too lazy to go look), but it's identical to the Inyo2. I bought it about three years ago... and I'm still using it. It's been on perhaps 30 or more trips -- some one-nighters, others extended backpacking. I like this tent so much (as do all my friends) that I use it the most despite having a line-up of tents at my disposal at the outdoor rental center I manage.
PROS: Extremely lightweight, extremely small-packing, ridiculously inexpensive, and durable.
CONS: It's not as fast and easy to set up as a simple freestanding dome AND the zippers are cheap. The fly zipper on one side of mine became jammed on my third trip with the tent. Fortunately, the other zipper still works well.
