User Review: MSR Ventana
Design: 3 season freestanding - could be used all-year round
Ease of Setup: excellent.
Weight: less than 5 lbs according to the literature. But can be set up with just the fly and footprint for those concerned with weight
Price Paid: $199
This tent is awesome! I spent a week in New Hampshire at the end of August and this made the trip feel like I was staying in a five-star hotel compared to some of my buddies.
The tent sets up very easily and is fool-proof in a few short minutes. Only two poles, color-coded slip into fabric sleeves instead of sucky clips. It's free-standing, but stake it out just in case.
Can we talk ROOMY for such a small footprint? It easily fit me (6'1") and my girlfriend (5'10" -- yea, she's a tall drink of water), but would easily accomodate two tall guys without worrying about the people in the tent next-door questioning your sexual orientation. :)
It's got a nice gear loft included and a great vestibule. I'd HIGHLY recommend this tent.
