I purchased this tent a few years back directly from Diamond Brand. Emily told me they found some Plateau Tents in the Diamond Brand warehouse and they were selling them off for $75! I jumped on this great buy! I have experience with Diamond Brand products. I've been using Diamond Brand tents for 13 years already and all I can say I'm really satisfied overall.
This Plateau tent is made in Diamond Brand's North Carolina factory and it is 13 yrs. old. But of course the tent was brand new, never used, still in the box when I purchased it. Last night I slept in it in my backyard and around 2:45 AM a cold front pushed on through, bringing thunderstorms and rain. This tent performed flawlessly and never leaked once! I would describe this tent as a little "old school" compared to today's more "high tech" tents but it still functions very well. I really like the tent is 8 feet in length which allows a tall guy like me to stretch out for a good night's sleep. Head room is good also. The tent has a nylon rainfly and it lacks vestibules but for 75 bucks it is still a great buy. I'm looking forward to using it on one of my backpacking trips sometime soon!
