User Review: Macpac Microlight
Source: bought it used
Price Paid: unsure
Very good tent, only lacking a little in the way that condensation can build up.
- quick and easy to set up and pull down
- light and compact
- dual pitch system
- condensation can build up if no breeze
Setup: sets up quick and easy, especially handy is the dual pitch
Stability: nice and stable in must be pitched the right direction in strong wind have only used in very light snow and was no risk to the staability of any tent
Weather resistance: keeps out rain quite well
Ventilation: this is the only piont where it is lacking has a vent up top that must be open along with mesh window unless there is a good breeze blowing
Room and storage: lacks in headroom but I have spent a night with two people in this tent. thankfully there was a good amount of wind to keep away condensation plenty of space for gear out in the vestibule and a good size wall pocket inside too
Packability: easily packed up packs nice and small there is now tents that are able to pack up smaller and lighter but i believe that the microlight will out last them simply on th basis of its strength
Ease of use: works just fine consitently the pegs that come with it are a great relief to previouse pegs i've used as they dont bend easily yet are still light alluminium
Durrability: as allways with macpac the product is desinged to last a lifetime
Conditions of use: used this in mainly three-season use for three years now, about 6-8 times a year
