Beautiful looking tent with a major design flaw in the zippers / mesh. Caution!


  • Lightweight
  • Easy setup
  • Functional (great interior design)


  • Mesh prone to ripping
  • Zippers prone to jamming

The tent is beautiful looking, lightweight, and sets up and takes down easily. The problem? You have to be so careful with the zippers. They are prone to catching the mesh from the tent and after very few uses, I've managed to rip holes in the mesh (one is about 3 inches long).

This is a real pity. I've used many tents (EMS, Nemo, LL Bean) and have never had this issue to this extent. It is a design flaw, and I'm waiting to see if they'll honor an exchange or refund.
