Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Design: three-season freestanding dome
Sleeps: 2
Ease of Setup: slightly awkward for solo set-up
Weight: 5lbs ?oz
Price Paid: $85

I bought this tent at a very low price which I thought would compensate for the "weightiness" of it for backpacking. I have absolutely no complaints (OK, if I'm real picky it is slightly awkward to put up solo).

I love the practicality (over-entrance shelf, vestibule, pockets, loft loops, totally water proof), but the fact that I trust it tops everything else. I've used it for 2 years for backpacking, kayaking and car camping and have never had a problem with it.

Design: three-season freestanding dome
Sleeps: 2
Ease of Setup: Very easy
Weight: ~2 lbs
Price Paid: $150

I've had this tent for roughly a year now. I'd say I'm still quite pleased with it. I've gone on two or three trips with it and it's held up great so far.

My biggest problem with it is the condensation. I think it would be better without the rain fly, but the weather always seems questionable when I set it up and so I always end up putting it on. The next morning the rain fly is soaked and so I have to kill time waiting for it to dry before packing up.

My girlfriend also has complained about the large size of the tent, I'm OK with it though. I've tested a lot of the smaller, lighter tents she thinks are better, and they seemed flimsy to me. I'd rather have a tent that's tough as nails and maybe a bit bigger than have a light weight one and worry about it tearing in the field. Set up and packing with this tent are also fantastic. Takes ten minutes at most.

Also, this is somewhat big for a 2 person backpacking tent, but for any of you who are new to this, don't expect to be sleeping next to someone in it unless you're really comfortable with that person, because you'll definitely be all up in each others' business.

Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars

Sleeps: 2
Ease of Setup: Very Easy to Setup Solo
Weight: 5 lbs

I bought this tent with priorities being 1) Waterproof and 2) Ease and quickness of setup. After using this tent I am extremely happy with it as it has satisfied both of these. The 3 pole design is intuitive allowing for quick and easy setup and take down, while the near complete coverage of the rain fly prevents any rain from getting in even in strong storms.

I would suggest getting the footprint as it is cut perfectly for the tent and provides a confident barrier.

The tent is labeled as having a 2 person capacity which with little to no gear it MAY be able to do but me (6'1" 185 LBS) with a mummy bag, sleeping mat, and gear, fit comfortably.

I have used this tent only in base-camping but I will be using it in backpacking trips in the near future.

Caveat: I only set this tent up in our yard, as my trailworking season does not re-new till next spring. That being said, I set it up during a week long period in which we received the rain-out from 2 tropical depressions/storms. All types of rain at varying speed, from mist to downpour came down, and the tent remained watertight.

I am very impressed also with ease of set-up and take down. More room length-wise than breadth but adequate for the two of us with equipment, including trail tools, whether kept inside, or in vestibule. The zipper on the fly for the entrance was a bit sticky but passable.

I would give this 5 stars but for the fact I have yet to use it on trail. Spent a LONG time shopping for this, was worth wait as thus far I'm very happy with it.

On my request a friend in the US purchased for me this tent in July 2007. I have used it the first time in September in Chamonix, France, exactly when a three-day really strong wind made life miserable day and night to all campers in the area. Because of the wind, it took me more than 30 minutes to pitch the tent but once in place I can assure it was rock solid. In spite of the wind and all noise, I felt comfortable and secure and decided this had to be the tent I will carry during my hiking and motorcycling trips in Europe, where I live. Great buy at a reasonable price, paid in Euros.

Ease of Setup: Fast and easy

As the previous hiker says, this is a good tent for someone 6'2". The vestibule is perfect for taking off muddy boots at the 'front door'. I have camped in WMNF in NH during the fall and have remained dry throughout many rains.

I love this tent. I am 6'2" and I fit very well inside. I love the vestibule where you can sit half in the tent and slip off your boots keeping the tent clean and dry. Great ventilation and window. It sets up in less than five minutes, stands strong and looks great. I recommend the matching foot print to protect the floor.

I have used this tent for all seasons. On first use we were in an ice storm and it held up perfectly. My hubby is a 6' non-camper and he was very comfortable in this tent.

I like to camp light, warm and dry, so this tent suits my needs very well.
