It fell apart. Until this month, I loved M.H. products and till this year owned four M.H. tents.
My Airjet 2 fell apart at the seams during its third use. It was even raining. It was my second M.H. tent to come apart at the seams this year and I treat them like children.
My other was the Haven 3. I really liked that tent and used it about three years, a lot. Then, in July, during a light rain, it just came apart. Pieces that weren't even wet or weight bearing just came apart. It was freaky.
I assumed it was a tent defect and REI took it back as a return, amazed at how it had literally fallen apart. Woke up wet that night. The Airjet 2 did the same thing but had only used it two previous times during an almost three year period. And it wasn't raining. It just fell apart.
The next morning, the stuff in the tent pocket had fallen through the seam, the seam by the zipper, one in the tent and one on the fly had all done the same thing. I've done some looking and others have had the same experience.
I'll no longer trust my M.H. tents and go back to my old standby. I still have a Skyledge 2 and an Atrium 4 but won't trust them for anything but car camping, certainly not high milage CO hiking.
I've written M.H. and am waiting for a response.
PS: I still use all their other gear, clothes and bags.
