Almost NO vestibule space, especially in the back.
Almost NO vestibule space, especially in the back. Not acceptable. Smallish door makes it tougher to get in and out of than others. Excellent heat retention. Awesome actually. Great for very cold weather.

Ten years and still going strong, considering what it's been through--treeplanting, outdoor multiday raves, my sister's Bible camp one year where she left it under the sun for two weeks, which totally destroyed the fly. I know the Nunatak is tough, but no polypropelyne should be left under the sun for even a day at most, but MEC has a replacement fly for $150, which is a really good deal, since most other tent manufacturers would want you to buy a new tent, great work, MEC!!!!
I love this tent. It's not getting out as much as it used to be but still I know I'll be keeping this tent for a long time to come. So if you're looking for a roomy two-person tent, with nice big vestibules, this just might be the tent for you. You cannot go wrong with it, or did I mention the number of times helicopters have landed next to it and the only thing that happened to it was two or three pegs coming off? If anything can go through a few seasons of treeplanting and survive, it's worth your money.

Comments: Have used this tent for SEVEN years, lots, in ALL conditions w/o problems or regrets! Many features, incl bug screen OUTSIDE of door, where it should be, so hot weather venting doesn't let in bugs...
Winter manhauling partner has newer version in yellow/blue (mine blue/black) and raves about it. Roomy 2, 3 in a pinch; once slept 3 medium sized people AND my 120lb Alaskan Malamute close, but comfortably!!..higly recommend.
These are my words three years ago...NOW 10 years...and I still swear by it!!! This winter produced 1st tearing around vestibule pole sleeve with ice tool..my fault...the tent is bomber.

Just bought the Nunatak recently, (within 2 months) and have already faced 80 mph winds, brutal rainstorms that turn quickly to ice, sleet, tons of snow and all in one 24 hour period to boot. This tent is as bombproof as a tent could be. It was purchased solely for expeditions and has lived up to its name and dollar's worth of rip-stop. When the temperature drops to -18 the occupants don't complain...much, (certainly, not about the tent anyway...). If I have one grimace, it would be the weight, but I can't see where corners could be cut to save in that area. The bathtub floor is heavy duty as is the fly. The Easton poles are heavy duty as well and slide easily into the sleeve pockets without snagging. The vestibules are larger than most offered in other tents this size, making it handy for storing your dog at night, (provided it isn't a St. Bernard or Great Dane...), or other gear. I've used two candle lanterns together in this tent in the extreme cold and have noted how quickly it warms the room up. (Of course, use common sense when burning candles in your tent). The pegs are the same mediocre set you get with most tents. I would recommend proper snowpegs or snow anchors with this model. The tent's profile is great for shedding snow, but the wind wants this baby to fly away. With lots of anchor points on the fly, you'll want to take advantage of them for gale force winds.
Bottom line...BUY THIS TENT if you want a dependable tent! Thank you for reading this book!

This tent is fantastic. 4 pole (Easton alum.) this tent really is Bomb-Proof. Holds a ton of snow, (first time I used it the tent was COVERED in snow overnight). Rain is no problem, I've used it in some wicked rainstorms, and stayed dry as a bone inside everytime. You get a little condensation when it's hot, and when it's raining, but nothing to get excited about. 2 doors, and 2 vestibules give you tons of room for your gear, and the forward vestibule has its own pole support, making it big enough to cook in, (and dry off your boots). The fly can connect to the bottom of the poles, or velcro straps can hold it to the pole in bad winds. 6 external guy points for REALLY bad wind. I would buy this tent again in a second.
