I have used this tent several times in the past couple of years, most recently on the Northville - Placid Trail in the Adirondacks. It is an inexpensive tent and it basically did what I asked it to do...keep me dry and out of the elements. I was wet for most of nine days and the tent held up well. It has plenty of room and is light enough for long hikes. I don't pay a lot for my equipment, so two and four hundred dollar tents are not on my list. The Backcountry is easy to set up and easy to pack. I like the short poles a lot and found that I can open this thing up for ventilation or shut it down for warmth. It's a good addition to my gear and I have been comfortable with it in all four seasons.
