This is the best shelter I've ever owned. I don't…

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $200

Summary

This is the best shelter I've ever owned. I don't just use it for backpacking but use it camping or traveling and want to stay light. Can be roped to anything in many different fashions. Main disadvantages would be in heavy wind or rain (although may be OK if set up in a special way).

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Uses trek poles

Cons

  • Bad in snow rain or wind

The best tent I've ever owned. See summary.
