Very roomy and comfortable and light weight. Packs away very nicely and is very easy to set up. Is great for any weather and very sturdy.
- Easy setup
- Weather proof
- The door has mesh, but it isn't s separate layer
The setup is excellent and sets up in about a minute or two. All the poles are easy to snap in and they are very sturdy so they don't end up coming undone when you move on.
The stability in the wind storm that we endured, the tent was very sturdy. It barely moves if you set it up right and is most comfortable during the storm.
The tent doesn't leak at all and is very nice to be in. The sides never leaked and it is great in the rain as long as you have the rain fly on.
The room is very good for a three-person tent. I have a dog and my dad and sister always love to come backpacking and camping with this tent.
The storage is nice because you can put it at the end of the tent or outside under the rain fly. It packs up very nicely and is very light.
Have had the tent for a while and it has been through some tough wind storms and all of the tent with all of its features are very durable and reliable. I am very satisfied with this tent and it is the best three-person tent I have owned.
Wonderful tent! Having been in Boy Scouts for many…

- Perhaps the color? Even that doesn't bother me.
Having been in Boy Scouts for many years and majoring in Wilderness Leadership in college, I have used many different styles and brands of tents — this one blows all of them away hands down. I also have worked in Outdoor Retail for the past 4 years and I have used it backpacking and front country car camping and have always been pleased. Great job, MSR!
The headroom is great and setup is very easy. Great bang for your buck!
