To sum up, great tent!
- Form geodesic
- Foot on the ground is not necessary
Five poles in all. The assembly is rapid and the tent is now very stable. In case of strong wind is necessary to anchor directly to the tent with a couple of pegs.
As already said, the stability is excellent. The triangles that form the poles mounted give the whole structure an excellent strength.
Ventilation and Weather Resistance:
Ventilation and moisture management is not the strong point of this tent. In November, about a thousand meters above sea level near a lake (Lake Como, Italy) I woke up with the tent over wet, with several droplets. Certainly is designed to drier climates.
Waterproof with snow and water unexceptionable.
Perhaps the tent is a bit heavy. On that front ferric could work a little more. At the end of the weight is divided into two, so it's bearable ... ;)
Room & Storage
Spacious and comfortable for two people. In case of emergency can become three.
