User Review: Mountain Hardwear Airjet 2
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $275
Just called MH to return my tent. Never got to use it, but the whole front door section detached when set up. Hope their lifetime warranty service is good.
- Looks great until you set it up
- Poor fabrication, since some seams are glued, not sewn
I bought this tent in 2007 and hoped to use it for some week+ long backpacking trips. Set it up when I got it in 2007 and it looked like a great solo backpacking tent.
Didn't get a chance to use it until recently so I wanted to set it up and make sure it still was fully functional, even though it's only been stored in a cool, dry, storage room. Luckily, I did this test since the entire front section became detached from the rest of tent when I installed the tent poles.
Called MH today and they provided a return authorization number with no questions asked. I think this tent has a history of falling apart so they expect returns. Hopefully their warranty service is better than this tent's fabrication.
Not sure why some seams are glued and not stitched. Most tents are sewn and have the seams sealed with tape to make them waterproof.
