User Review: Mountain Hardwear Waypoint 1
Design: Three-season non-freestanding hoop
Ease of Setup: Requiers stakes, but sets up very quickly.
Weight: 3.4 pounds
Price Paid: $110
I used this tent extensively, from overnight light packing trips in the Sierras to the Rockies and the Cascades. Even used it on a 14day through hike of the John Muir Trail. The weight to space ratio is really nice with the single wall system.
How the door opens straight into the tent causes issues when it's raining, as you have to be careful not to get anything wet.
The bigger issue is condensation. Even in the drier climates of the Sierras and Rockies condensation from body moisture and my breath would collect inside the tent and sometimes freeze at night. Quite often I'd have to wipe down the walls at night. Also, after several years of use the "welded" seams completely delaminated.
Mountain Hardwear was great with the warranty, and gave me full credit toward a new tent. I won't be buying their single wall tents anymore, but will continue to do business with them, as they've been very easy and usually make good gear.
