Summary

This is a light tent, that can be put up in a flash. The vestibule unfortunately opens to above the tent body, allowing any dew or condensation on the outside of the fly to drip into the tent.

Pros

  • Light
  • Easy setup

Cons

  • Poor vestibule design

This is a solid tent, when setup correctly, it is very stable in most conditions. The Sil Nylon floor needs to be accomodated in rougher terrain, and should be paired with the optional footprint. I have not experienced any issues with condensation, as the tent seems to have pretty good ventilation. I'm 5'11", and can comfortably sit up in the tent.

My only issue with the tent is how the vestibule opens to above the tent body, allowing any water on the fly to drip onto the body of the tent.
