Bought this tent from YHA shop in 1993 and have used it ever since. Have used it 6 or 7 times a year (min) in some pretty foul weather and it has never let us down. 14 years on and I am just about to buy another. It's done us proud...

Right now I am just giving it three stars till I actually put this tent to the test. The rating can go higher or lower depending on performance. :)

The tent came today. Upon initial inspection it reminds me of a cheap copy of the Terra-Nova Quasar. It has a REALLY dark green (looks almost black if you ask me) nylon ripstop rainfly and an orange nylon taffeta tent body. The poles are generic aluminum and the tent body attaches via rings and pins. Appears the rainly is simply staked out (there are NO clip attachment points) but I did notice the underside of the rainfly does have pole wraps (not velcro ones though). I will say this is an interesting tent and look forward to putting it to actual use in some rather nasty weather.

I should state this tent came with the total of 32 aluminum stakes and has plenty of guy points. The gear loft is included and a center loop to hang a small light. The tent measures 5x7 ft (the floor that is).
