User Review: Peak 1 Aries
Design: 3 season dome
Ease of Setup: simple
Price Paid: $100 (Campmor)
I have used this tent for 3 one-week trips to Alaska and one to Montana, plus countless weekend trips. I have spent nights in horizontal, blowing rain and have never gotten wet (I did seam seal it). The front and rear mini-vestibules keep all but the most tenacious rain out even with the door and window open, which provides great ventilation in addition to the top vents. Also, the front and rear overhangs make handy spots to hang socks or camp towel to dry/air at night; protected from dew and rain. It is totally free standing; unless the wind is really blowing, you only need 2 stakes (or rocks) to pull the fly taut. My tent is getting a little tired now, but I will replace it with another Aries. I have seen many friends spend a lot more for tents that do not perform nearly as well. The only downside is it is really not big enough for 2 people, but perfect for 1 plus gear.
