Price Paid: $450

Summary

We used it for two weeks in Alaska and the Yukon. It did just fine, although we got lucky with no bad storms. Did shed the light rains well though.

Pros

  • Easy to put up and down

Cons

  • Thin ground floor
  • Small for even a three-man

This tent is easy to put up and take down. The ground floor is thin. We did use a ground cover, and probably always will.

We had a couple cold nights and made the mistake of closing the ceiling vents and the door screen all the way. This tent is so tight that there was a lot of condensation inside from our breathing.

This tent is on the small side. Two people and packs is about all.
